COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden in color, this low ABV lager balances Pilsner and Munich malt with an aromatic American hop aroma. This beer starts hoppy but finishes unexpectedly malty with very low bitterness. Impressively flavorful and drinkable for the lightest beer we brew. We dub this beer a "Session Lager," as we once again brew a lager in a beer style of its own.

ScipioA (302) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pale yellow with a little haze (hops?) and not much of a head. There are lots of the dank hop aromas I’m starting to associate with this brewery, and also some light doughy malts. The hops become a little more citrus and grassy in the flavor, balanced by lightly sweet malt. Everything seems a little muted though, except for the alcohol profile which smells strong for a 4.5% beer. Light on the tongue, maybe a little under carbonated for the style.

Bottle. Pours a golden yellow thin white head. Aroma is malt, bread. Taste is slightly sweet, bready, very light. Certainly drinkable.

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden amber with a small white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is grain, grass, citrus, pine. Flavor follows suit - definitely has the lager thing going, but with a pleasant overtone of american hops. Light sweet, light bitter, light body. I would rather drink this than a Bud any day, but it doesnt hold up to the best IPL’s (mostly also brewed by Jack’s Abby).

Cloudy gold pour at GABF with a nice white head. Crisp and clean, flavorful, floral, malts, light honey flavors sneaking around. This is really nice.

500mL thanks to WillRunForBeer! Pours a slightly hazy amber golden. Thick, white foam erupts with generous retention and thick lacing. Impressive appearance. Nose is German style sticky malt, detergent, fresh lemon, big soap...warming up it gets more of a honey grain and bread that I would hope for. Taste is suddy, pretty bland with hydrogen peroxide, mild biscuit density. Palate is highly carbonated on the tongue, but there isn’t much malt body. Feels dull, drained. Disappointing. Still, drinkable and inoffensive.

On tap at Meadhall Pours a golden color with a solid sheet of light cream foam. Smells of grassy and piney hops with some dry grain in the background. Flavor is cereal grains, slight bitterness, some nice grass hops and a little bit of butter underneath it all; well played. Medium bodied with tight, snappy carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer. Like the ABV on it. 3.75/4/4/3.75/4
