Wasn’t a fan of this. Seemed stale and uninspiring, might have been an old can or something.

On tap at C Bar, Portland. Nice golden body with medium head. Nose is hops, corn, some spices. Taste is malty, straw, spicy with some hops. Gets more bitter in the finish.

On tap at the Poet in Santa Cruz. You know what? This is a great hoppy lager. There’s nothing wrong with this at all. It’s easy to drink, it’s not sticky and adjuncty, it has a firm hoppiness and a drying bitterness, it’s refreshing and interesting. The hops used are awesome -- Nelson in a lager? It works. I don’t know what more you would want from this style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can. Light copper and clear with a white head and lacing. The aroma is bready malts, fruitiness, herbal hops, light citrus and a touch of honey. Light to medium body with a crisp clean feel. Malty flavor, with floral hops, light fruit and a lingering finish.

A wonderful take on a hoppy beer, this lager comes across the palate more smoothly than some pales but still presents its strong hoppy character in a way that doesn't disappoint. In other words, if you like hops but its a bit too late in the summer to want something that lingers too long on the palate, head right in this direction

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pour is clear golden color frothy white head and great lacing. Spicy German hops, cereal, light corn, snappy, straw, biscuity, grassy aroma. Taste is grainy, grassy, somewhat minerally, straw, earthy, a touch of biscuit, a touch metallic, yet clean with a nice bite on the backend. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Nice offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Sam’s, Durham. Pretty nice stuff for the style. Starts off with a pretty handsome pour, medium orange bedecked with a nice head. Sharp and dry nose but some Nelson Sauv coming on with fruit a bit later. Flavors aren’t especially fulsome, but given the style and the ambition here it’s pretty righteous and refreshing stuff.

This one is awesome. Pours a nice golden yellow with a beautiful pure white head. Would love to drink this one after a nice long bike ride.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can. Pours a translucent golden color with a full foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, bubblegum, and sweet fruits. Taste is of citrus hops, sweet malts, a bit earthy, with a slight spicy tingle. Good carbonation. Nice bitter finish. Very enjoyable and refreshing. This may be my new lake beer. Here’s to summer just around the corner.
