2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours like a pale lager, yellow, but this has much more head. Not much on the nose... Definitely more of a hoppy flavor than a typical pale lager. Not bad..

Very good everyday beer. Crisp, hoppy brew on the nose and palate. Not overly hopped, which was greaty appreciated. Took these straight from an ice cold can and noted this makes a classier yard beer than most I favor.

The beer pours a golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of resin and orange citrus from the hops, as well as some biscuit. The flavor also has a good amount of bitterness. I get some lightly toasted malt, as well as some pine, resin and orange citrus. There is also some biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

You know, for a premium lager, this isn’t so darn bad. No obvious adjuncts in this one, for starters. Is it light in aroma and flavor? Of course. Would I still take this over your typical pale lager, ounce for ounce, almost every time? Yes.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear caramel colored with a thin frothy head. Nose of earthy toffee and musty caramel with some earthy herbal hop tones. Nice flavor of clean light toast, some light hop bitterness, and a cheeky little floral citric hoppiness. Not shabby!

Clear golden with a large, rocky head. Light citrus aroma, zesty, a bit of rustic hops, light bread. Crisp finish and lightly toasted malt finish. Pretty solid.

16oz can, 4pk. Silver & blue label. Pours clear 24K gold color. White foam. Tastes crisp and refreshing. Flavors of honey, Munich malts, malted barley, light fruit, distant white grape essence with a hint of dry lychee sugar. Aroma of cold biscuits, pale malts. The best beer of summer! (3366)
