Good quality lager with a nice clean well balanced character. New Belgium has gone for the big market with all their brews. With this one it works. JHeath99 (1679) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2015
Can. Pours a golden with off white head. Taste and aroma don’t stray far from just regular malts. Beerdedone (3446) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Can. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains, grass and citrus. Flavor of pale malts, mild citrus, floral, grass, toasted grains and a touch of fruit. drcboehm (104) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2015
12 oz. can from Folly craft 12 pack. Very smooth drinkable pale ale. Session ale indeed. Delicious. pumpmaster (1430) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2015
12 ounce can purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $13.99/sampler pack. Nothing special.

Better than the infamous fat tire. Actually tastes pretty similar but with a lighter mouthfeel, more hops and less roasted flavor. Decent. Evolutionary (513) - Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Can from sampler pack. Nose is Piney and light feel. Hoppy for a lager but somewhat uninspiring. TheSilentSaint (102) - Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Amazing taste. Good piney nose.
Good head! Nice lacing!well balanced. Nice all time beer!

6/XII/14 - 12Fl. Oz. can from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: (smudged ink)/FEB/15 (2014-1468) JCLNoCo (5) - - JAN 3, 2015 does not count
Clear pale orange beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: malty, hay, grains, caramel, some ripe summer fruits, bit sweet, hint of exotic fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus, sweet malts, more citrus, bit of caramel, pretty bitter hops. Aftertaste: exotic fruits, pineapple, citrus, grassy bitterness. Very nice lager!
Can’t argue with success, right? NB has crafted a national presence based on its unique beers. Problem is, marketing seems to dominate its more recent creations rather than brewing. Shift is way too hoppy. A lager should be quenching and easy to drink. This isn’t.
