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.

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

Lukasmh (462) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2015
Tap. Pours clear golden with nice white head. Aroma is very balanced between earthy hops, some citrus, and malt. Some bread. Taste is crisp and fresh. Very nice balance. Some elderflower and nice malty base. Bitter finish with with some earthy spice. Slight dry. One of my favorite pilsner, so balanced!

Radek Kliber (6602) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Where and how: PG Amherst / Bottle 355 ml.
Aroma front reminded me of good old school Polish piwos, secondary vibe of citrusy floral hops. Very pleasant in character.
Appearance :
Top: medium plus, lasting creamy, puffy cap.
Base: mild haze on gold, hinted with amber.
Palate : medium full bodied, lighter carbonation, smooth body, slightly oily. Good malt work,
Taste: hoppy but not too much. Sesionable , drinkable deep golden lager. Balanced. Mild toasty, golden malt wrap things nicely.
Other notes yum

dagimp (801) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2015
From a bottle into a snifter. Pours a really nice yellowish blonde. Real good depth of color. White head and a teensy bit of lacing. Not much aroma and slightly rancid..... Mouthfell is actually pretty luxuriant for a light beer with not too much alcohol. Slightly bockish. Taste is sweet with plums???? Very mild and not all that interesting. Eh. Not bad, not good.

jrob21 (2858) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bonus from a recent trade. Toasty grain aroma. Flavor is a lote bit of the same with some grass and hay bitterness towards the finish. Nice lager with enough toastiness to remind you it’s a lager but a little more hops to make it interesting.

bavarian81 (89) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Poured a hazy deep gold with a thick, gradual dissipating head. I want to say the aroma had a blend of light bread malt and citrus. It has a nice soft, but crisp mouth feel. Flavor is a nice hop/malt balance with some subtle citrusiness and tartness. It’s very smooth and tasty.

egajdzis (5527) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 Golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, grains, grass, some cereal. Taste of much of the same, toasty, grassy hop bitterness, exceptionally quaffable.

Beer4000 (4987) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 26, 2015
12oz bottle.Clear golden body with a big, creamy and lacing white head. Weak aroma of malt with a light floral touch. Flavor is light, but very smooth malt, low bitterness and a hint of grassy/floral hops. Medium body and short aftertaste. Quite average lager with no faults, very soft and smooth but not particular exiting.

Bottle from SJ. This was a solid lager. Almost Herbal to a point, but not overbearing, Earthy / dirt, grass, lemon bread, grapefruit and salt. Interesting brew.
