COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The perfect blend of West Coast piney citrus hop aromas mixed with the crisp refreshment of a German Helles lager. This classic lager style is dry-hopped with copious amounts of Amarillo, Simcoe and Cascade hops to create a new-age West Coast craft lager like none other.

Bottle. Pours with a crystal clear golden hued body with a large and retentive, just a shade off-white head. Aromas are herbal, a bit dank, chinook like grapefruit-herbal character, spicy, a bit of fruit, moderate delicate grain character. Flavors are mildly fruit, herbal, pine, spice. Hop centric with a low bitterness. Mild melon notes. Clean fermentation, mild malty toasty notes. Medium-light bodied, carb is medium (~2.4-.45). Quite drinkable/pleasant.

Very mild floral nose, clean drinking, mild noble hop bitter. Not a bad beer, not a great beer, yet more than middle of the road.

Great beer from a great brewery. Love the new direction these guys are taking with their West Coast inspired lagers!

Not terrible. Dry, hoppy. Is a little too light, and has a sweetness which isn’t my favorite. A fairly good lager.

Ibrew2or3 (6846) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a bright white head. The faint aroma has virtually nothing going on, seriously I get nothing. So what was the point of dry hopping? If I work at it for a while I think I’m getting a thin malty echo. . . maybe. So if the lager warms maybe something will work aroma-wise, but a warm lager? Hmm. I’m stumped. The taste is sweet with sugar malts. To midway a nice spicy to lime hoppiness intercedes and helps take this to the finish where the mild hops linger for a while

Great pilsner! Clean pilsner malt flavor but with some nice floral slightly fruity and earthy aroma. Simple straightforward with a dry hop bonus.
