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.

Poured clear golden from a bottle, with medium white head. Has a good hop kick at the start and malts take over. Amazing they can get this taste from a lager. Easy drinking beer medium body

Bottle shared by Steve at Billy Dregs’ tasting. Pours super hazy but bright golden with medium to large white head. Notes are toasty grain, flowers, orangey hops, fruity wheat, honey, caramel malt and lager hay. Very sessionable. Solid

Lightly hazy straw-yellow body, large white head and soapy lacing. Biscuits, light citrus, grass, and floral hops, toast, and grainy cereal. Medium to light bodied, lively carbonation, semi-sweet finish. Refreshing.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. I really enjoyed this. Simple, light, easy to drink. A little bit of hops up front but a nice malt backbone, especially for such a light beer. Had a few Jacks Abby beers and this was the best of the bunch IMO.

pours clear bright gold with a thick white head. aroma has light maltiness...not sweet...and mild earthy hop tones...light toastiness and grass/herbs. flavor is very clean...mildly toasted malts and nice earthy hops...grass, spicy hops. mouthfeel is full and the finish is crisp and dry with earthy hops and a pleasant mineral water-like quality. very enjoyable!

I think I might need to try this again to get a better understanding of this beer. This sounds like a ridiculous statement for such a light and straightforward beer. However, simpler beers intended for session drinking are difficult to fully assess when you’ve only had one. My initial impression is that this beer is somewhat overrated. I thought there was an underlying-- albeit subtle-- cardboard flavor going on in the finish. Overall, not bad. But nothing special.

pours bright golden with a ncie white head, some retention and lacing. bready, spicy and lightly toasted maltiness, few tropical and citrusy notes in the aroma. dry herbal-grassy and peppery notes. clean yeast action and subtle fruitiness. bright carbonation, light body - never watery even with its low abv, dry, crisp herbal-grassy-citrusy finish. complex. highly drinkable. impressed!

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
My Bottom Line :
This lager’s intricate spicy and fruity hop nose relax in a prickly, lean mouthfeel where soft cereal flavors serve as a foundation for merriment.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam tops the misty straw blond.
-The finish is a tad forgettable.
-The flavor profile doesn’t seem as deep as the aroma?
-This beer is meant for a krug.
-If you like this, Germany has a few hundred beers of the same caliber!

Golden and hazy. Nose of german malts, really low bitterness. i get some tangerines and biscuit. Taste is pretty bitter, feels like it’s full of adjuncts. A hint of salt and lemon zest.

Bottle, 08/03/2013. Golden pour, pillowy white head on the surface, lacing clinging to the glass, champagne bubbles. Aroma is cereal, toasted biscuit, lager yeast with citrus, grassy hop cone. Taste is toasted cereal, light lemon and citrus hoppiness, grassy finish. Light, crisp body. Definitely pretty tasty for a light lager, could knock back a few of these.
