3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw color and clear. Grain and grassy aroma evokes a German lager, but without the crisp finish. Something is missing. I think the hops should be maybe different. The cereal and sweet side needs the balance of Saaz hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small fizzy white head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is light pale malt, slightly sweet, with a light white grape note. The flavor is pretty bland, light pale malt, a bit of corn perhaps, and minimal floral hops. Mouthfeel is light and watery with fizzy carbonation and a short finish. Overall, pretty bland and boring stuff, but not all that offensive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with a finger-tall white head. Aroma is pleasant, light floral and grassy hops with a bit of grain. Medium, carbonated body. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a nice crisp finish. Not a lot going on here, just a clean, refreshing, crisp lager. I’d come back to this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Oddfellows, 11/3/15.
Clear golden liquid is topped by a small, moderately-retained white head.
Very straightforward lager here with low hopping rate adding just a touch of floral character. Moderate sweetness, not overly so, but could stand to be a touch more dry/crisp. No flaws though, and obviously no alcohol. Goes down very quickly and easily, though the carbonation needs to be tightened up a bit, as it seems rather loose/low leading to more apparent maltiness than I’d like.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Maritime Pacific, pours a clear pale and yellow with a medium white head. Nose brings out grassy notes, some corn and crisp crackery malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with herbal and grassy notes, some corn and crackery malt. Very crisp and punchy, with high drinkability. Very nice lager.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour pint at the 192 lake trail taproom. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a patchy head and full lace. Soft grassy lemon aroma. Near absent. Crisp and refreshing flavor overall. Has a sugary sweetness to it. Drinks easy, and would probably pair nicely with something, but I wouldn’t know, since I paired it with this rating alone. For what it ia, it’s good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at WA Brewers Festival, 2014. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Nose has the requisite corn elements to it, as well as a bit of grass, which was a nice surprise. Taste has a lot of corn and grains, and seems very much like an average lager. Drinkable, but not much to it.

Leave it to a seattle brewery to make a seriously hoppy pale lager. Medium body and slight malt sweetness. I would definitely guess this was a pale ale. Has that sweet fruit and body that don’t say lager. has a bit of a spicy flavor to it as well.
