12oz into a glass. Pours a honey lemonade gold. Super huge and thick white head, imminent domain. A few inches of goodness. Hangs out awhile too. Aroma of orange, grain, crystal malt, citra hop essence. Taste of hoppy orange, grassy Meadows of herbage, fresh pine, malty finish. The interchange between the styles is interesting, as it hovers over an Ipa base but throws in pilsner and lager quantifications as well. Groovy and relaxing.

Nice citrus fruit with a pleasant bitterness. Nothing is over done but both are prominent and balanced enough to keep it enjoyable. Overall very refreshing.

Pours a nice cloudy gold with rocky white head. Aromas are fruity hops, not as overwhelming citrus as I’d expect with Citra, but still nice. Drinks more like an IPA, lacks the clean, dry character I’d expect with a lager. Sorta heavy on the hop bitter aftertaste.

High grapefruit even the rinds finish it. Hops are heavy but not insane. Deep yellow and hazy. Light aroma makes me think sunshine. Tap

Poured from tap light golden color with a thin white head. Aromas of juicy citrus and hop. Taste is ok but left something to be desired.

12 oz bottle. Nice clean citrus taste that does not overwhelm anything else. For a fruit beer this was quite enjoyable.

Bottle at home. Pours hazy dirty gold with sudsy white head. Nose is lovely burst of juicy citrus. Tastes of mangos, guava, dank weed, honey, peppercorns, touch aerosol. Nice sticky yet lively palate. Drying finish. Probably best otter creek beer I’ve had.

(bottle - 12 oz) Cloudy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Light citrus hop aroma with a light floral hint. More an IPA in my view than a lager. Citrus hops and a very light and slightly bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Draught at Coles, Buffalo] Pours a slightly hazy deep gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head and some lacing. Nice citra aroma, lots of fruity hops, just lovely really. Flavour’s not quite as good but still good, it follows the aroma along with a light odd touch I can’t place. Big dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good.

Where and how: PG / b. 355 ml
Aroma lager? citrusy fruit sided with sweet ripe mango. Quiet sweet.
Top: large creamy, foamy white top, lace on glass.
Base: fine haze, pale golden.
Palate : medium bodied, soft, mild carbonation.
Taste: very hop forward, everything else is secondary. Mellow base,
Other notes not very lager like. Hops cover benefits of lagering. Tasty? Yes, but considering lager is more expensive to brew , one might wonder why.
