Dark golden color with a fairly decent white head. Aroma is like an earthy pale lager with some hops. Taste of hay, hops and grapefruit. A bit dry and bitter.

Tastes just like Sam Adams noble pils. Expected much more. Very earthy hop aroma and taste. Not bad but not what I was expecting.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and pine. Taste is light malts and moderate bitterness. Light bodied; crisp. Smells like an ipa; tastes like a weak ipa. Still, pretty good for this category.

I bought the variety pack for the maple pecan ale. But this one was definitely the best out of all of them, the citrus flavor was terrific and everything tasted so well together

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Part of the Spring Thaw sampler pack. Pours a clear amber with a bright white head that has good retention and leaves behind lots of sticky lacing. Aroma and taste of fresh hops, grapefruit, pine, citrus and malts. Very crisp and fresh tasting. Great citrus and hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body, sticky, creamy body, average carbonation. Being a lager gives this an original taste and mouthfeel. An excellent session beer!

Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of pine hops with some sweet grains and a bit of crisp lager yeast. Flavor starts with crisp lager yeast and grains and has a bit of musty pine coming out in the finish.
