Can from mixed 12 pack on Shell Island. Really flavorful and enjoyable pale lager. Nice bitterness and malt balance. Was very refreshing on the beach and perfect in cans.

12 oz can. Pours pale golden in color. Aroma of grain, lemon, clean. Flavor is grape juice, corn, touch of citrus. Pale Lager is the worst, it doesnít matter who makes it. This one is at least drinkable though.

From a can this is refreshing and lager like at first then this hop thing starts to show thru. Yes, now I see its a premium lager, fer sure. Does have some ill ale attributes at times. Slightly more than dull hop sensations continue to manifest. Not bad overall, no real bad attributes here, except perhaps for the bitter hops on the finish. Fortunately, there is a decent amount of co2 in there.

120z can, this is probably the best pale lager on the market. Clean crisp refreshing brew. Great session beer. I will probably buy a case of this stuff for the summer.

If you are looking for a lager that tastes like beer and not miller light this is a great choice. You can taste the hops and that really sets this beer apart. Lagers are definitely not my go to beer but if they all tasted like this one my opinion would definitely sway. Great beer!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drunk from the can, so I didnít get a good look at the pour. The aroma is a lot of cereals, resinous hops, and grass. The flavor is fairly bitter, with a dank sweetness. Light body, crisp, and a little astringent. Overall, this is a very hoppy, grainy pale lager. Not flavorful enough to be a good beer, but not sessionable either.

This is a crisp and very tasty lager which I might have pinned as a session IPA or something had it not told me what it was on the can. It is crystal clear and orange golden in the glass with a little ring of head and a few spots of lace. This is definitely on the light side but still packs quite a lot of good, hoppy flavor. This is decidedly American in character w/ lots of citrus and some white grape notes. A cookie dough malt character gives everything support and brisk carbonation cuts through any sweetness to keep it lively and light. If you look at New Belgiumís ratings on this site, it seems like all their sours and stuff are getting the most attention as far as being great beers but if you ask me their real strength is making light, refreshing brews like this one, which they do as well as any brewer in the country.
