4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Are you kidding me? With Sam Adams releasing Alpine Spring, and this deal here...the Craft Brewers are making better lagers than the big boys. Serve these to your Bud/Miller Lite drinking friends. Theyíll dig it the most.
A bit darker than the BMCs - straw-colored. No apparent aroma other than a bit of hay. The hops are awesome - itís not hopped like an IPA - itís hopped like a good lager should be. When I want a standard lager, this is what I expect. By far one of the best lagers Iíve had, commercially, in a while. Thanks, folks!

Can. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains, grass and citrus. Flavor of pale malts, mild citrus, floral, grass, toasted grains and a touch of fruit.

Better than the infamous fat tire. Actually tastes pretty similar but with a lighter mouthfeel, more hops and less roasted flavor. Decent.

Can from sampler pack. Nose is Piney and light feel. Hoppy for a lager but somewhat uninspiring.

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!

Canít 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 isnít.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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)
