Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is bready malt and a little hop. Flavor is lightly bitter, with a sharp, biting quality in the middle, and a bit of citrus in the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2011 Very nice dark golden color. Great balance of malt and hops. This stuff is awesome off the tap and the bottle keeps the integrity of the beer very well.

Passable lager gotten in trade. Some malty aroma, some white head on light golden colour. A tad light mouthfeel, easy drinking. Pure example of style.

Typical grassy, bready lager, but doesn’t really work for me. First sip OK, but goes downhill fast. The finish is watery and sour.

Pours a clear gold. Aroma is malty with a slight hint of pine and citrus. Taste is quite light and malty. Overall a nice lager.

Draft at GABF. I was very excited when I saw this one, just because you don’t see many pre-pro lagers out there. Pours a gold with stiff white head. Nose is vegetal, cabbage and maize. Some faint herbal hop notes come through, but the DMS is a bit offputting. On tasting, it’s a bit cleaner, but still vegetal with maize being a driving component. Bitterness works but the hops that they are proud of seems really restrained. I dunno, maybe a bad batch?

Bottled, nice lager with citrus notes. Nothing too exciting or mind blowing, but would be a perfect match with Mexican food.
