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.

Dry toasty malt and crisp clean noble hops. Light fruit acidity suggested. Finishes with a peppery spice on the tongue. Simple but decent complexity for a sessionable lager. Really tasty easy drinking beer.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Trade from Willrunforbeer - Thanks! Cloudy orange, thin white head. Smells nice, with biscuit - like malts and peppery, grassy hops. The flavor is pretty much the same, maybe a touch sweeter than the aroma would indicate. Nicely bitter finish. Nice stuff!

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2014
The Ruck, Troy tap: Pours pale gold with a white head. Aroma is light malt, bits of grass. and some light American fruity hops. Taste is very light, but has a very nice malt backbone. Really easy to drink. Nothing off. A very well put together session lager.

Cybercat (3227) - Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a thick and fine-bubbled eggshell head. Aroma is mainly fruity, pear with some apple and a bit of banana, and a malty undertone. Flavor is fruity and a little malty, not bold but pleasing, with a bit of hops in the finish. Texture is rather fizzy and has about average thickness.

Bottle with thanks to BoostIPA. Pours clear straw with small white head. Aroma: fruity, a fair bit of caramel. Toast, faint apple juice and just a hint of sulfur. Taste: deeply toasted caramel malts, short lightly bitter finish. Light body, ample carbonation.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2014
Big offwhite head. Clear coppery body with strong carbonation. Raisiny malt aroma with watery honey notes. Dryish mealy watery grainy taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, dusty mouthfeel. Dry dusty watery grain aftertaste with strawy fruity notes. Weird how they can brew something so watery at 4.5% with such flavourful malt. Anyway, I felt this didn’t work. There are no off tastes, but the water really spoils it for me. (0.5l bottle, from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.)

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Solidność. W aromacie słodowo, bardzo czysto, lekkie nutki chmieli niemieckich. W smaku bardzo słodowe, treściwe, goryczka wyraźna, nic nie przeszkadza, jest pijalne i smakowite. Ideał stylu premium lager? Bardzo możliwe. Chciałbym to w każdym sklepie po 3 - 4 zł.
