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.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
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

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Aroma of floral hops and soapy malt. Cloudy orange with sand grain sediment. Bitter start, mellow sweet finish. Light body with a little snap. Great for sessions no doubt, also makes a good starter beer before a bigger offering.

JBPortland (1374) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 30, 2013
From 10/29 notes. 500ml bottle pours clear light orange-gold with 2 finger head. Nose is subtle fruity spices, very faint citrus, and maybe a hint of banana. Mouthfeel is crisp carbonation, malt backbone, easy drinking. Taste is earthy orange, grain, rice, some lemon notes, malt. Finish is light bready malt, mild bitterness, with some subtle fruity and citrus notes. If I’m going to drink a light lager it would be something like this. Good.

Growler from Premier Gourmet. Large foamy head on light yellow. For a premium pale lager, its very good. Very good drinkability. Not much aroma. Smooth mouthfeel.

berniecarbo (148) - Holliston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2013
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!
