COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dream Machine, an India Pale Lager or IPL, is a melding of varied visions of an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager. Once poured, its light copper color delights the eyes and a citrusy hop aroma flows through the nose. Upon first sip, a smooth hop bitterness reveals itself - fresh, bold and slightly spicy - before subtle hints of mild maltiness appear. A big hop bite and a crisp, clean lager finish combine for a beautifully balanced beer. Take Dream Machine for a spin and let your reverie begin.

Hammy78 (841) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle picked up at Tops Niagara Falls. Clear golden colour with quite a few floaties, massive white fluffy head and lace. Nose is a crisp Pilsner malt like smell. Tastes sweet, malty, a little corn like, sugary, and bitterness mainly in the finish.

SDalkoholic (2213) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle from Sprout’s: Appeared a glowing yellow liquid that was hazy and had a thin layer of foam head. Aroma is mild with whiffs of green hop pellets that give off scents of perfume and pine. The flavor delivers a slight bitterness from a modest hopping but the grainy bread like malts are what made for a pleasant drink.

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 24, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a melon orange with a decent head of tight white bubbles. Aroma is hoppy and light sweetness. I’d guess this to be a mild IPA if I didn’t already know the lager component. Flavors are more IPA than amber lager... although there is some bready notes that get overwhelmed. Creative but I think the two styles are better on their own.

Luvystypotables (956) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Floral, citrus and hop aroma, a great looking beer clear copper color with a thick lasting creamy head. Tastes more like an IPA than a lager. Medium body with a taste of hops and a hint of grain. Dry chalky finish.

blklab2007 (2078) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle poured a brown in color with a thin layer of white head. Aroma has some malt, dusty hops, yeasty, and light bitterness. Mouth feel is medium light with low side carbonation. Flavor has a bigger malted side than expected, flowery hops, growing bitterness, and some caramel.

Palidor19 (3047) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2015
This beer has a bit of make and hop balance. The problem is that it's too watery and the flavor feels almost secondary. As a light drinking beer it's decent without the substance to overpower your palate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phikus (96) - syracuse, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2015
This was not good. The color was totally off, smell was yeasty. The hops were overwhelmed by the doughy yeast stale grain flavor of the beer. It was free. I only took a few sips.
