Bottle. Yellow/orange pour with white head and a lot of lacing. Smells of malt, yeast, and slight citrus. Tastes of light hops and malt. Very easy drinking. Was expecting more hop bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours smoothly and has a nice white cloudy head. There is a moderate haze to the beer and the color is a dark amber in color. The taste is sweet and you can taste the grains used in the brewing process. I was expecting this beer to be somewhat bitter since they include the name hop in the name and show a hop flower on the label but this beer was not bitter at all.
If you want to clean your palate this would be a good choice.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange/amber. Medium average head with little retention. Bready malt aromas are present along with an earthy hoppiness. Slightly sweet and grainy; it’s what I would except from a lager. The grassy wet hops are noticeable, but left me wanting more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber, pours clear golden orange with a bit of white head. Requisite bready, pilsner malts, nice punch of noble-smelling hops. Full-bodied mouthfeel, meadowgrass, a bit of lemon and light, airy funk. Greatly drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber. What looks to be filtered, some chill haze maybe, orange tan. Foamy off-white head. Interesting corny, grainy Pils aroma. Respectable range of hoppy flavors, way better than typical Lakefront. A pretty enjoyable Imperial Pils, more sessionable than a lot of the brutal offerings out there. Enjoyable and pretty unique.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a deep golden color with 2 fingers of head in a tulip glass. Aroma was very much of a lager with mild hops that of earthy grass. Lagar beer hit my mind once it hit my lips. The wet hops were mild in the finish with hay and grass. A solid lager with a nice mild hope pressance. Mouthfeel was light with high carbonation, what I would expect from this type of lager.

This has all the hops in the aroma but great balance in the taste to spare you the hop bite at the finish. Poured from a bomber, it looks great with a full, fluffy head and attractive lacing as the head settles. The higher booze content is nicely hidden. This goes down better than Lakefront’s original Local Acre and is a beverage I hope to see repeated in future years.
