This was a nice light crisp brew. It was a little cloudy which surprised me but had very little after taste and little hop aroma. I was thinking this would be more like an Irish Red but since it has Lager in the name, that makes sense. It’s not your typical lager but fairly easy to drink.

HIGHB4LL (269) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2014
On tap at Rogue Bar in San Fran on St. Patty’s Day. Appearance: finger white head, gone quickly, clear, straw yellow. Aroma: wheat, roast malt, light yeasty leaves. Palate: soft to flat carbonation, light body. Taste: wheaty sweet throughout. Overall, drinkable, but nothing special.

Aroma is a grassy somewhat grainy body with someone carbonated body. Taste is a nice is a fairly subtle body with light malt notes and a basic bitterness. A clean grain character on tip with a smooth matching bitterness. Body is a hazy gold with a nice medium lace body thst retains well.

DrSilverworm (5022) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2014
10oz on tap at Flipdaddy’s. Clear golden orange color. Nice bigger off-white head. Good thicker splotches of lace, looks pretty damn good. Great texture to it, as well. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Great appearance and texture to this, then. Flavor is not that interesting, though. Just some bready, lagery funk. A light macro-like weird thing going on in the flavor, here. Some corn type flavors. Decent ands interesting, but what about this is supposed to be Irish-style? Is it influenced by an Irish macro? Bigger sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Despite the odd flavor, though, it never becomes a pain a drink, and lacks the bite of a macro. Has a near-perfect texture that you only see in craft beers.. Good stuff to try, and a pretty decent, classically tasting lager in the end.

From bomber to pint glass. Pours a clear light gold with full, fluffy white head. Both aroma and flavor are grainy malt with slight hay and lemon. Finishes dry and crisp.

BrettTaylor (392) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bomber bottle poured into pilsner glass from cellar (54F). Pours a light gold color with a thick white head. Head is long-lasting and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma - biscuity, green, a touch of yeast. Taste - initially biscuit and then a touch of bitterness, then some malty sweetness and a finish that is lightly bitter and astringent at the back of the mouth. Carbonation level is appropriate and leaves a tickle in the back of your sinuses as you swallow. Note a huge fan of irish-style lagers, but it’s St. Patty’s Day. This isn’t bad, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink it again.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Best place to get a lager rating - for free at the Whole Foods Market sample pours. Nice crisp barley. More than adequate for style but still not something next level. Pours blonde with OK head and lacing.

rumproasts (2549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2014
bottle. Golden with two finger head. Nice flavor for a lager. I’m not crazy about Irish-styled beers in general, but this is definitely an exception. Light malt body, pleasant slightly hoppy bite.
