The bartender told me this was some kind of pale lager, yeah sure is, hardly any color in this baby. The aroma was mostly all malt as expected with a slight tinge of floral hop bitterness. The taste was not much more than the smell mostly malt switching to a slightly spiced body then turn bitter, a little to bitter of a finish for a lager.

On tap at the Eugene Steelhead. Pours a light golden yellow with a tall fizzy white head. Aroma is grainy with a straw character, lightly fruity, with a nice floral hop backing. Taste starts with a quick light malt taste then quickly fades to a green hop finish with a big bitterness, a bit unbalanced by the excess bitterness in my opnion. Smooth and crisp with just a touch of wheat.
