Well now.....this is interesting. Fizzy yellow, but a bit darker than most PLs. Do I smell hops? Hell yes, I do. And you can taste them. What keeps BMC from making an affordable, every day lager like this?

Pours a transcendent light copper w/ a nice tan head that slowly fades. Aroma is a little weak but to be expected from a lager. The taste is crisp & smooth. Has a slight bitterness at the finish. Fairly tasty. Good for a warm day in the sun.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can and rated on 5-11-2012. Poured a small white head that mostly diminished, transparent body, one ring of lacing, very little carbonation, and a yellow-golden hue. The Aroma was malty, hints of grain, hints of spices, hints of fruit, and citrus, pine and some floral hops. The Flavor was lightly bitter, malty, lightly grainy, and citrus, pine and floral hops. The Mouthfeel was tingly and this is a medium bodied Pale Lager. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer given the style as it was easy to drink and the flavors came together nicely. This beer went great with my pizza and this is a beer that I would drink again and is worth trying.

Serving: 16 oz. can from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a light gold with a foamy white head. The nose is light with a touch of grassy hops and not much else. The flavor is a touch of grain and grassy, spicy hops. Light in body with lower than average carbonation. Solid BMC competition if the price is right, but so far it isnít so Iíll take the Ranger instead.

Pours a deep straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. Good retention and lacing. Easy-drinking lager, quite smooth. The aroma has a mix of fresh bread and mild fruity hops. Light orange and grapefruit taste with light bitter finish. Good stuff!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pour is a light golden orange, crystal clear and off white head. The nose is very nice, well balanced grain to faint sweet malt and a zesty herbal hop. The taste follows the nose, great grain presence, very fresh, subtle caramel malt and herbal hops in the back with an assertive carbonation and gentle bitterness. Soft velvety body and crisp clean finish. This is victory esq.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
If Iím forced to drink a Pabst/Bud/Miller/Coors-like lager, Iíd much rather make it this beer--but I donít go for bland, light beer in general. Itís not a bad beer, itís just not an interesting beer. Fat Tire would be my idea of an easy-drinkiní session from New Belgium. But, Iím a person that can drink a stout or Trippel out in the heat of a hot summer day too--I also donít drink alcohol when I mow the yard either. That said, I hope it becomes as popular as Pabst! Love the package design though.
