3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can (best by 09 September 2012) $6.99 4-pack. Pours with a crystal clear, deep golden yellow hue with a large, bone colored white head that lasts pretty long. Aroma of fruity and floral hops, lightly grassy, tropical fruit. Light crackery and slightly sweet malt notes (not bready like a pils based beer). Light hay notes, pretty clean yeast wise, although it is a bit hard to tell with such fruity hops. Flavors are bready, crackery, grainy, medium bitter, grassy. Almost a very light DMS character from the malt. Tropical fruit, grassy, mild citrus and a touch herbal with a clean finish.
Fizzy carbonation, medium to medium light body with a crisp finish. Clean, low sulfur. Very drinkable, tasty stuff. Clearly American Craft in character. Good stuff, and pretty fresh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is a decent dry malt with a little lingering hop toward the end. Flavor is some dry pils malt to start then leaves a decent hop on the tounge. One of the hoppier lagers I’ve ever had. Perfect baseball watching beer.

16oz can 4/4/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove Singles Rack)-38° in English Pint-Pours a medium golden with a nice white head. Aroma of hops, malt, and grain. Taste of the same with more hops on the back end. This light bodied brew is pretty darn tasty. Nice job.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clever marketing (or Canny, maybe?) by calling it a Pale Lager, thereby lowering expectations. First of all, pours a golden orange, not a pale yellow, like I was expecting, plus a big fluffy white head. Nice grassy, slightly corny aroma. Flavor is surprisingly crisp and hoppy, with a decent hop bite at the end. I liked it.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 Can from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours pale yellow with white head and nice lacing. Nose is grassy hops, mild citrus and orange, and a bit of a metallic hint. Light and refreshing. I’ll buy more of this over the summer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2012 Aroma is citrus, bread and a hint of piney hops. The flavor is citrus, a hint of grapefruit, hops, grains and a crisp finish. More of a premium lager, very good lager either way.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear golden. No head at all. This has some hops that help a lot. They are sulphury with light fruit. Not bad.
