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!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not terrible. Dry, hoppy. Is a little too light, and has a sweetness which isn’t my favorite. A fairly good lager.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
