COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
MMMKay is an India Pale Lager, originally brewed from the second runnings of Aww Jeah. Now, built of its own accord, the nose is a dynamic explosion of hop aromas! The initial fragrances are of bold citrus fruit: guava, orange, and lemon. As the head settles, the aromas shift to fresh evergreen accents. Indicated by the light body and pale yellow appearance, malt was an afterthought, and the focus here would be hops. An array of enjoyable American hop flavors shock the palate ranging from slightly fruity to intense earthy pine. A bold bitterness dominates the finish enhanced by the clean unobtrusive nature of its lager origin.

On draft at the GTMW 2014 pre party festivities. Pours a straw golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of pine, earth, and citrus peel hop notes. Flavor is crisp, bitter, hop forward, and smooth. Lots of citrus peel and fruit notes. Mild malt sweetness. Light bodied, lively palate. Finishes bitter. A pretty great hoppy lager.

This is my favorite "lager" that I have had the pleasure of tasting! It certainly defies traditional characteristics of the style, but that is why I love it so much! (not a big lager fan, in general). This beer pours a very nice golden-straw color with a slightly foamy 2-finger white head. Aromas are intense! Lots of tropical and citrus fruit aromas. Sharp orange, grapefruit and lemon burst out with subtle sweetness and herbal accents following behind. The light body on this does not let the malts/lagered yeast have much say in the flavor...much to my liking. Loaded with a bouquet of hops, the flavor is balanced with the same bright citrus as the nose. Some floral notes couple with pine, resin and cannabis to culminate in a nice herbal-garden harmony. Finishes with a medium bitterness and crispness that leaves my mouth watering. Could drink this beer every day.

On tap...hard to image that lagers could be this good after years of drinking the industrial swill made in the US. Lots of hoppy complexity that showcases the many flavors of the vining cones. Finishes clean and crisp...awesome.

Super hoppy with a piney flavor. Golden color with a light head to this brew. Really easy drinking, but a definite boldness. Good body to this IPL. Yummy!

3rd beer of Taste Eve. Hazy straw body. Not much head. Aroma is all citrus. Very tasty. Is this citra hops? Has to be one of the best lagers I’ve had.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 Caramel and moderate citrus hops, blended with flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, tropical fruit and lemon. Light pine finish. There’s a faint musky, almost cheese-like taste in there but the other flavors do a good job masking it. Good, crisp carbonation.
