Nice session beer especially at the end of a day in the heat of the desert Southwest. Hopped enough to make it interesting.

mcberko (13923) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out crisp grassiness and biscuity malt. Decent hop content for a pale lager. Solid for what it is.

reebtogi (5590) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2016
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton (New Belgium Tap Takeover) pours a clear golden color with a small white head leaving spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light malty sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A respectable lager that is worth checking out on a warm summer’s eve.

Pours clear gold, big fluffy white. Aroma is blend of flowery, peppery hops with hints of malt. Flavor is more bready malt with hop bitterness, but without the flavor notes from the aroma. Mouthfeel is light and carbonated.

after4ever (7535) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Draft at SB. Lots of people say nice things about this one as a lawnmower beer, and I couldn’t be any more eager than I am to find great session beers. Was this an old keg? The rep was in the room for this one last night and I didn’t have the heart to ask her. Pours a very slightly hazy medium amber with a loose white head that sticks around. Cardboardy, stale nose, with some old corn nuts showing. Creamy medium body with moderate carb. Cardboard, corn nuts, and corn husk on the mid palate. Mild, cardboardy finish.
