3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Brewforia. Pours lemony gold with a slight white head. Mixed bag of hops. Sort of "bois". Med minus body. Flavor is very light pale malt with some mixed hop - even a little spiciness. I can imagine about any flavor here, but nothing seems to dominate. Gotta be one of the tastier pale lagers around.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from can to glass. Straw hue with slight green tint and fizzy white head. Aroma is straw, cereal, cucumber, grass, metallic, slight sulphur. Mouthfeel is really nice with a light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice bitterness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is a nice session lager that isn’t overly sulphury.

Super pale with a nice haze and head. Really, a very good pilsner. Smooth with a peppery tang.

12 ounce can from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. I have a confession. Upon seeing the word "lager" on a can I had negative thoughts. These were unfounded and shame on me! This beer was a huge gusher. A white foam that was as light a can be imagined was huge and slow to fade. Cool lacing. The beer was hazy yellowish. An aroma of European hops with grass. Pale malts. Light fruit. The flavor is grassy and sometimes has sulfur. Some spice, but only a bit, lemon. It became more dry towards the finish. When the low ABV is figured in this is really good. It mixes nice drinkability with an interesting flavor profile. A good mix.

Growler from Payette. Although cereal in nature, its crisp and clean and heads above the macrobrews. Aroma is cereal grains (of course) and a hint of sour, but it has a nice fluffy head and decent lacing. Taste is light, bread, crackers, sourdough. clean and simple.

On tap at the brewery Hazy golden with a wispy off white head and spotty lacing. Light grain cereal aroma and a soft malt flavor. The hops are a bit prominent for the style but that gives it a little bite that it needs to keep from being boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can- Pours pale clear golden with a huge three finger white head that reduces quickly. Aroma is corn, grains, grass, some spice. The taste is grains again, fair amount of hops, mild peppercorns, pretty light and subdued, but better than your average pale lager. The body is thin and carbonation is foamy. Easy drinking and simple, could be a good camping beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz can. Pours hazy sunshine yellow with a medium white head with good retention; leaves a little lace. Aroma is corny, lemony, bready. Taste starts out lightly sweet before turning quite bitter and lingering that way long after the swallow. Medium-bodied, prickly carbonation. This really has not much in common with your average pale lager. Its bitterness and general hop character backed by noticeable bready malt make this much more interesting. This tastes the way lagers should taste. There’s more to it than the carbonated water the big brewers pump out.
