Best summer canned beer! Very crisp with a clean aftertaste. Light body and lightly hopped. This beer runs circles around the rest to me scanman (150) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
This a truly delicious brew with distinct flavors and aromas. Drinkable, refreshing, but also elegant and unique. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2012
Clean lightly toasted nose, soft grassy hops, beautiful. Pale gold, spongy firm white head. Light toast, some clover honey sweetness followed by a gently lingering hoppy finish. Still maintains that biscuity New Belgium foundation. This is what I want in a pale lager. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 17, 2012
16 oz can bought at Fairway in CDA, ID. Aroma is citrusy/peachy hops (in a pale lager? who’d of thought?), bread. Pours clear deep gold with a long-retaining white head; lace sheets the glass. Taste is lightly sweet and finishes slightly bitter; the bitterness lingers on the tongue. I know it’s labeled as a pale lager, but this has much more in common with a classic pilsner. Unlike most pale lagers, the hops are very prominent here. Crisp and refreshing. Highly carbonated, medium bodied. New Belgium really outdid themselves here. BMC, take note: this is how your beers *should* taste like. dwyerpg (6054) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Not the first beer I had after a 40-day sabbatical from drinking (kinda Lentish), but certainly a tasty one. Some hops and crispness in the aroma actually. And a decent appearance and good flavor. This is quite tasty. Light, but with a solid crispness and enough hops. More than met expectations.

Shift could be the most hilarious well-balanced beer of all time. Drinkability is great...flavor is there when you need it....and you can actually have 4 of them and not fall on the floor! etano (2) - - JAN 13, 2013 does not count
I don’t know I just like it really refreshing. I have 31 characters to go. Now 6. 3 1! Crash812 (1) - Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2013 does not count
I love this Pale Ale because most companies sell IPAs that have a bitter aftertaste. I normally by Blanco’s Pale Ale but find Shift a little lighter, more refreshing. sewer123 (4) - minooka, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013 does not count
Solid session beer. Hoppy smell to it. Hoppy after taste but not like an ipa. Calm hops nothing crazy. Dope session beer if your tired of the cheap stuff. Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Deep Yellow Color, Huge Bubbly Head, Leaves Lots Of Lacing. Nice Pine Aroma. A Surprise for a Pale Lager. Sweet, Pine and hoppy. Light oily medium body. Easy and pleasant to drink. Not sure if this hoppiness is true to the style but it seems like this pale lager is about the same hoppiness as some macro IPA’s.45Real easy to drink. Nice and recommended. Left me wishing for more...
