COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the style of 70ís and 80ís British Punk Rockers who fought the law to death and glory in the clash of the lower class leftists with limited career opportunities.

The beer is well balanced with delicate flavors throughout, using a Munich lager yeast that highlights the ingredients clearly and gives the beer a soft yet satisfying finish. Brewed with Canadian grown pilsener malt and magnum, liberty and tettnanger hops from Mt. Angel. 6.77% abv

Capped 750 from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Med body. Flavor is earthy/fruity like a saison. Finishes with earthy hop bitter. Just excellent.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy yellow with a generous white head and a light floral aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a yeasty bitter finish. Stays on the palate.

Bomber, fresh, 48 hours after purchasing. There was definitely a career opportunity waiting to be made in brewing saisons for an audience so bored of the USA over-the-top IPAs and such. Upright capitalized; on this coast, theyíre the leader, brewing Oregon subtly intstead of Washington bullets. For me, itís the right profile. In the supermarket, I stumbled across this beer, turned it over and over, and couldnít figure out what it was; "Whatís my name?" it practically screams; heck, Iíd even like a clue as to the style. Though I tempted to be a cheapskate, Uprightís reputation carried the day here; one more time Pours straw-yellow with an explosive white riot of whipped eggwhite head. Peppery, lemon, definite saison tones, though relatively subtle--Iím not overpowered by funk. Iím not down with the sticky imperial-pilsner feel, but I canít deny it, this is a good beer and itís sure to land atop the premium lager category, even though I think itís a bit of cheat to push that to 6.7%. (Alright, that was a really stupid review. Apologies to anyone who actually read it.)

(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy pale yellow with a rocky huge meringue-like white head. Nose of grass, pineapple, floral, and lemon zest. Smells so good and clean! Taste of clean grain bill, lemon, very subtle earth, extremely smooth and easy to drink. Excellent lager! Iíd drink it all day if it was in cans.

2010 pre-Brewerís Jam tasting. Cloudy straw yellow with whitish head. Aroma is grainy with some lemon and a hint of saltine cracker. Flavor is nice and dry with some hay and leather notes. A little bit of lemon comes out from time to time. Refreshing finish. Pretty good stuff.

Thanks to Hopscotch for supplying this bottle at a local tasting. A lager ah.. well I didnít know what to make of this one, but anything thatís got The Clash on the label has to have some balls. This one didnít disappoint. It had almost a honey lemon zest to it when I took a whiff. The color was on the lighter side, gold and yellow, but that didnít really sway me in the slightest. The pour was foamy and bubbly with a good head retention. The flavors were a bit saison-ish, which, for me, made for a good drink. Could possibly be a good session beer.

Old rate. 750 ml bottle from Brewery Creek in Vancouver. Poured a very light golden, slight haze, massive amounts of creamy white foam. It took ages to settle out. Aroma was almost saison like with lemony notes, some grass, but the hops rode in to give it a much more lager like quality. Tasted very dry, crisp, grassy but admirably full palate. This is a very decent premium lager and one Iíd love to drink more of. Canít quite believe the Clash gave permission for the licensing though...werenít they totally against crass commercialism?
