6/XII/14 - 12Fl. Oz. can from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: (smudged ink)/FEB/15 (2014-1468)

Clear pale orange beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: malty, hay, grains, caramel, some ripe summer fruits, bit sweet, hint of exotic fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus, sweet malts, more citrus, bit of caramel, pretty bitter hops. Aftertaste: exotic fruits, pineapple, citrus, grassy bitterness. Very nice lager!

Can’t argue with success, right? NB has crafted a national presence based on its unique beers. Problem is, marketing seems to dominate its more recent creations rather than brewing. Shift is way too hoppy. A lager should be quenching and easy to drink. This isn’t.

solidfunk (4529) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2014
High drinkability quotient and even a little real flavor. Pours golden amber with decent head and lacing. Crisp barley finish with more hops than the average lager. Very good for a lager. Can I found in the fridge at work.

Lagerboy (1370) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
355 ml can. Clear bright golden yellow, healthy white lasting froth. Herbal lager malt aroma. Taste is not too sweet toasty pale lager malt, slightly floral and fruity, hints of citrus herb and spicy hop. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Better than most. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

12oz can. Golden color with one finger head. Grass and malt with a little citrus aroma. Taste has more of the citrus and malt. Dry finish. Decent.

One the best all-round New Belgium brews available. Highly drinkable with nice body and bite for a pale ale

akoeninger (501) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Clear golden color with foamy white head. Faint citrus aroma and pale malt. Crisp, clean taste and smell. Taste lightly hopped fruit, toasted malt, slightly fizzy finish. Could definitely drink a few of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
