Aroma: Lots of fruit in the nose. Smells like the same aroma hop addition used in their seasonal ale, Dig. Appearance: Crystal clear and golden in color with appropriate amount of head. Taste: Leans more toward the crisp/dry end of the maltiness spectrum and finishes with an appropriate level of bitterness. Flavor isn’t nearly as fruity as the nose. Palate: light and effervescent which I prefer in a pale lager. Overall: I like this quite a bit. I don’t drink lagers often and this beer will even the balance. The hop aroma is interesting but doesn’t dominate the beer they way that the Nelson Sauvin hops do with Dig and it finishes clean and bitter which makes it a great warm weather sipper.

Dark straw pour with off-white head. Nose was mild hopcitrus, some fruity sweetness. Tasted of pale malt, grapefruit, resiny hops, and a crisp finish. A hopped up pale lager with much more flavor than most.

jookos (2061) - FINLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Can. Golden clear. Somewhat grainy pale malts, hoppy greens, some earthyness on nose. Soft nice smooth body. Lager maltyness, light nice citrus green hoppy note. Ok. A lager as it should be. Light, flavourful malty, with real subtle hops.

DalzAle (1975) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Can. Light yellow pour, slightly sweet corn aroma and taste with some noticeable hops tossed into the mix. Not a bad beer, but not one I’d regularly pick up with so many other better options available.

Lanny (1) - - JUL 19, 2014 does not count
a beer with hop and citrus taste. Somewhat fruity. Could almost be a breakfast beer for those grapefruit lovers.

BBE 13 JUL 14 - Pours clear copper orange with a thick white head. Aroma of crisp bready malts, grassy hops, citrus and fruits. Taste is crisp, slightly bready and earthy with some grassy hoppiness and mild fruity notes. Finish is crisp, grassy and bready. Okay, moderately hoppy lager.

Not bad. A pretty average beer all around but still very drinkable. Even better on vacation.

Beerhunter111 (7089) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein kräftig goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, getreidig, angenehm hopfig, blumig. Geschmack sehr hopfig, malzig, fruchtig, herb, süffig.

arnold931 (517) - Iowa, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Can. A clear gold with a medium white head. Nose is grass or hay hops. The taste is grainy with some biscuit. Pale lagers are often overlooked.

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Can. Golden body with a frothy, white head. Aroma of toasted grain, grapefruit with a hint of floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. If Fat Tire were turned into a premium lager, this is what it would be.
