3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden-bronze body with silky, foamy head. Nose is pert, crisp, and balanced between Euro-hop and maltyness. The body starts of malty, then some Euro-hoppyness unfurls, and then the grainy backbone rises again. Rye vein throughout. Nicely melded medley of hop and grain ingredients.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Nice strong noble hop aroma with some earthy, straw also in the aroma. Hop forward flavor, with notes of grassy, hoppy, earthy, grainy flavors. Nice hoppy lager, you don’t typically get hoppy beers with noble hops.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Nice, bright golden pour, crystal clear and still, yet presenting a bountiful head of pure-white foam. The aroma is sharp and seductive, hinting at a nicely hopped brew. Indeed, this drinks like a super-powered version of the best, hoppiest pilsners of southern Germany and the Czech republic, but with an added plus of a big heavy mouthfeel. Good, good stuff, an excellent lager made for the hop-snobs. (#5067, 6/23/2013)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

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.
