COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weíre turning things deliciously upside down with an aggressively hopped cold-fermented brew that brings together the clean crisp finish of a lager with the hoppy aroma and character of an IPA. PROST! To turning convention on its head.

HughConway (769) - Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours clear yellow/orange with white head. Strong hop aroma, taste is crisp and clear. Call it what you will but this is a session beer for hop fans.

Bottle. Taste is lemon zest, grain, hay and a bit of alcohol. Very decent SPA.

ElGaucho (2188) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Wonderful floral hop aroma. Lots of visible carbonation. Thin white head and some lace. Virtually crystal clear body. Was thinking that was odd for an ale, and then looked at the name of the beer and realized itís a lager. So it makes sense. Perhaps the most flavor Iíve ever had from a lager; somewhat comparable in that way to Sam Adams. Tastes a little more alcoholic than 6.7%. Very good.

ciaranc (781) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 18, 2013
Clear, Amber tinted gold, frothy white head which sticks around. Nose is a strange burnt malt, toast, cereal and grain. Lots of yeast notes too.Flavour is similar, toasted malt, doughy yeast. Quite dry, medium to thin body, highly carbonated. Finish is malty with some cascade dry grapefruit bitterness.

BroSpud (1666) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUL 17, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a light golden with a white head. Iím liking this style and have been seeing it more and more as of late though this is not one of the better ones. That said, it is quite drinkable. Minimal hop aromas with flavors of grapefruit and onion with a bit of a metallic aftertaste. Nothing to go out of your way for but makes for an OK dinner beer.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a very thin, fast-dying white head that leaves a horribly ugly lace. Aroma of metallic hops, some light malt, a hint of earth and some cardboard. Medium-bodied; Assertive malts up front with strong earthy notes, a little caramel and a lot of english and german hop varieties up front. Aftertaste shows a good mixture with a pleasant earthy maltiness, some light caramel sweetness, and a great balance of bitter hops. Overall, a decent beer with some good hop flavours, but the balance doesnít strike me as right for a lager, and the complexity simply isnít there to make it sublime - but it is a good beer to sample during the summer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Harris Teeter in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 17-June-2013 for US$8.49/6pack, sampled at home in Washington on 15-July-2013.

12oz bottle. Small white head atop crystal clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, pine/grass/straw, bread, light lime. Taste is moderately sweet, pine/grapefruit, some bread, lager yeast lemon. Medium body, some acidity, light resin.

maxwelldeux (3450) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle. Iím actually quite a fan of this emerging style... I was excited to try this one. Nose is decently hoppy with some grass elements coming off this one to me and just a little bit of that lager corn smell in there. Taste is much the same, with a hefty amount of bitterness from the hops and a hint of the lagery sweetness at the end.

Pours a clear golden amber color with white head. Citrus, malt and hop aroma. Citrus, malt and slight hop flavors. Dry citrus finish.
