UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Golden appearance with a terrific, fluffy, tightly-bubbled head that lingers for quite some time. Crisp, light, hoppy, bready, and slightly peppery aroma - very inviting. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel; a light hoppiness and fresh bread taste with just a hint of spiciness. This is really, really good - flavorful and exceptionally refreshing. New Belgium can really be all over the place, but this is truly a great beer.

Pours bright lemonade yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is light honey, citrus, and an earthy hop. The taste is light and crisp with a great hop flavor and decent sweetness. Finish is ever so slightly bitter. This is a lager??? It’s light a really good light IPA.

There are some great hops finely matched in this delicious lager. Clearly a homerun, this brew is subtle and sufficiently bitter. Blends great with mustard roasted potatoes and chicken ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy with a slightly musty hayloft scent. Flavor is hoppy with a clean but slightly sweet finish. Nice malt body, very tasty twist on the German lager. Very drinkable while remaining rather tasty. Wife: 3.6
