On tap at new Belgium in Denver airport. Crisp sharp lager. Some hops. Tasted ok. I think the lines weren't great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4/15/14. Pours a classic lager with maybe a little less head than other craft session beers. Mild nose but more assertive hop mouth than many lagers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip glass. Golden amber pour with a bright white a frothy head. This beer is crystal clear with lots of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. The lacing is fine but irregular but does stay with the glass. The aroma is classic lager- biscuit and grassy, mild hops. There are hints of tropical fruits, but they are illusive at best. The body of this beer is heavier than expected from a lager, but the difference is welcoming. The palate is crisp and clean with nice malty notes balanced nicely with a piney hop bitterness. The hops continue through the finish and linger for a good 20 seconds. Overall, a very well done lager and a fantastic sessionable beer.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
