3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale, golden, yellow with a thick forming, eggy head. At first, even knowing that it wasnít a Pilsener, I really wanted something close to it. However, I really warmed up to the beer. Grassy hops on the nose, malty and biscuit, cracker-like flavors. A solid lager, extremely refreshing. Seemed like solid construction. Hops offered a hint of earthiness and bitterness. How about a six pack? I drank my 16oz far too quickly.

Pour out of can at the brewery, clear yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, vanilla, hints of melon, slight spicy notes with a hint of grass as well. Taste is fairly nice, some melon and tropical notes with grass, biscuit, touch of grain and pils malt, finishing fairly sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall boy can. Pours a clear, dark golden color with a decent white head. Light, malty aroma with a sense of hops. Not bad for coming out of a can. Dry, malty flavor. Interesting taste. Nice balance with a decent hoppy finish. Kinda taste like Fat Tire and probably nothing I would drink again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can- Pours old golden with a one finger bubbly soapy white head that is not going to stick around. The aroma is a wonderful piney spicy hoppy aroma. The taste is more on the citrusy hop side, there is a fruity melon taste to it, grassy, dry aftertaste. Body is medium, carbonation is high. Overall a great beer, but why do they call it a pale lager?

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. It pours a very bright golden color with a nice white head. It sure doesnít look like any pale lager Iíve had. The aroma is a bit weak with some bready malt and light floral and fruity hops. I can definitely pick up the Nelson influence. The flavor is big and bold for the style with good floral hop character with some grainy malt and a dry spicy finish. Very easy drinking on the palate. It kind of reminds me of a Cal common more than anything else. Great beer to enjoy on the first 90 degree day of the year.

Can. Bright clear gold pour with minimal head. Light fruit and grain in this one - fantastic for the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden yellow with some foamy white head. Aroma is mostly light piney citrus hops. Taste is very similar to the aroma, very light and floral flavors with a bit of sweet malt character but not much. Not a whole lot of flavor but a very crisp and easy-drinking lager. I can definitely see this as a great post-work beer. Slam it down my throat why donít ya.

Bottle: The aroma is lightly floral, cereal, and grassy. It pours a transparent gold with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film within thirty seconds or so. The flavor starts with a quick dose honey and a hint of apple. The finish has some nice light floral notes, grass, and pine. Itís light-medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, a damn good sessionable Pale Lager. It has to be one of the best Iíve had.

Poured into a pint glass. Finger of head on a clear and golden body. Good lacing as the drink goes down.
Its aroma is faint; metallic and grain smell.
Tastes malty (for a lager) and then suddenly big splash of bitterness. One, two flavor profile.
Smooth and crisp texture, low carbonation and light body.
Tasty and drinkable for a long night or day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Whole Foods, P st, DC 4-pack: Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops for the most part. Taste is pretty much like an APA. If you were to give this to me blind, I would not be able to tell you it is a pale lager. That being said, it is pretty good. Light-bodied, hop-forward, and rather refreshing. However, on a hot summer day, I would prefer something less hop-forward.
