UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 What set shift apart from other beers in New Belgium’s lineup was the fact that it was exclusively available in a can. What sets this beer apart from other pale lagers is the fact that it embraces a strong and diversified hop lineup. In short, Shift has always stood out, and that’s a good thing, especially when we’re talking flavor. The hops neither overwhelm nor seem out of place. They make a confident, intentional presence without interfering with the malty presence. In the case of Shift, different is definitely good.

Picture perfect in the glass. Towering, fluffy white foam atop an ambr gold body with minute particles floating in suspension hazing it lightly. Pine needles, nettles and eucalypt dominate the very clean nose. A hint of toasted malt, hay bales and fresh mashed grist comes through as does a touch of white wine fruitiness. Oooh yeah, hoppy, clean, bitter and lasting. Palate is light with low carbonation giving it a supple creaminess. Vinous finish, raspy, herbal and dry for the length. Enough gritty malt to give it balance. Light sweetness to the front, fruity with underripe melon overtones. Overall a very refreshing, neat and polished lager. Delicious.

Pretty good session type beer. Won’t go into rotation, but works well on nights when I need to actually be productive in the morning. Tastes pretty good. Gentle hops. Not much on the nose. Doesn’t make me feel retarded after a 6 pack. A beer designed for crushing, that’s for sure. Though, at the price, I can find suitable replacements for the marathon sessions.

Pours light amber, lots of white billowed foam. Earthy hops and reserved, amber malts. Nice nose for a session IMO. Some corn pops up front, some malts, and some hints of wood. Meh. Thin bodied and hi carb, as expected. Has a semi dry finish. I would say this is great for 80 degree weather honestly, not that bad, but not that great. Slightly sweet.

Pours yellow-golden into the glass, with a soapy whipped head that leaves chunky lacing. The nose is of corn and hay. Flavors are of grains, light caramel malt, grassy bitters and finish with a similar grassiness. The mouthfeel is light and active, but this really lacks complexity on the palate. A nice "transition" beer for those whose tastes are still in the "macro" beer world to come to the dark side. So at least kudos for that, I guess.
