Can shared. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, light malt, flowers and caramel, with a touch of fresh strawberry and raspberry fields in and English summertime. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and bitter, echoing the memories captured by the nose. The body is light to medium, with soft fuzzy carbonation. Lovely for the style.

16 ounce can courtesy of AWISLguy, opened Halloween 2014. Trick or treat! Pours a slightly hazy amber with a medium sized foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of doughy malt, spicy and grassy hops. The taste is grainy malt, doughy malt, apple, grassy hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, decent balance. Nice beer.

Can thanks to Will. Poured into a red solo cup. Ice cold cooler temp. Banana lager esters on the nose. Freezes my nose the harder I inhale. Crackery malts. Nice carb. Slightly dry. Looks cloudy. Tastes like a dry biscuit without butter or jam. Did I mention it’s cold?

A little sweet on the profile, thin body, doesn’t seem to take advantage of the fresh hop nature of canning such a beer. However, kudos for packaging it in pint cans, and a clean refreshing finish. Sessionable.

Originally had this in a can, thanks to Bacterial. But, it was delicious and I crushed it before rating. Now it’s unexpectedly on draft in Seattle, and I’m going to punt on it again. Clear gold with offwhite head, great lacing. Fruit, spicy, and eminently crushable. Light body, smooth and easy. 1-word summary: crushable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pour at the Toronado Seattle opening. Pours a clear yellow with a soft and sweet, light lemon aroma. Nice barley and grain flavors with a good mild hop finish. Usually stay away from lagers, but I’m quite impressed with this one. Nice easy drinking, flavorful beer. Memorable. Good beer.

16oz can from Four Firkins. Golden yellow. Aroma of straw and light fruits. Some bread a touch of earth. Smooth. Not a favorite style but very drinkable. The drinkability makes it easy to see why it is one of their two top sellers. 12.6
