3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16-oz. can into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 4, 2012 (purchased at Vons in Mission Gorge (San Diego, Calif.) for $7.99 (with card) for a 4-pack on Nov. 4, 2012). Honey golden with 2-3 fingers of frothy white head. Good retention on the sides with foamy residue and pretty good on the top as well.
Smelled honey, corn, grains, cereal, skunk, grass and a hint of citrus hops.
Tasted pretty close to the nose, but more bitter. Got corn, grains, grass, honey, cereal and biscuit.
Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter abrupt finish.
Not a bad beer overall, especially for a lager, but I was hoping for something more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
New Belgium done good with this excellent drinkable and flavorful premium pale lager! Perfectly supplies what the label claims, a sessionable cross between a pale lager and a pale ale. Packs the hoppy flavors of the pale ale, but has the cleaner and less bitter finish of a lager. A solid medium-bodied brew but not too filling. Aroma and taste are of good intensity, features pacific hops balanced by pale maltiness. Reminds me of Kona's longboard lager, although this beer's hoppiness tends towards piney flavors while longboard's hoppiness is more tropical and fruity. A fine-tuned brew, without a doubt my new go-to from New Belgium and whenever I'm looking for a quality pale lager.
