This is a credible but slightly failed experiment--to create a session ale that satisfies someone who'd rather be drinking an IPA. They've tried to give it hop punch, a little body and malt, while keeping the alcohol down. It almost works. The hops are definitely present, a nice peppery zip, and the malt is trying--if not succeeding--at holding up its end. The whole thing finishes badly, though, with a hollow, tinny flavor, the hops fading to an unpleasantly harsh note with nothing to hold them up.

Bottle pour. Light hazy golden Amber with a nice off white soapy head. Aroma is a very nice sweet honey, caramel, and sweet malts. Medium to full somewhat creamy body. Last sweet taste, but not over powering.

This was much better than expected. Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of light fruity esters and a punch of grassy and floral hops. Taste had done bready grain up front but then totems directly to the hops, add a touch of earthy honey sweetness and it ends slightly dry. I'm impressed. mansquito (7148) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2017

On tap at brewery on 1st Street, downtown Seattle. Pours clear yellow-orange with a trace of off-white head and lacing. Aroma: honey, shortbread cookie, lemon. Flavor: malt-forward (light brown sugar, honey). Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, trace tongue bitterness in the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2017 Bottle at I-Pasta. A spicy golden lager. Hopped up Miller Lite. Good balance and aftertaste between straw, hop, malt and spice. Keeps it interesting and fun to drink. Headbanger (4022) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Sampler 8/28/16 (Pike Brewery-SEA)-Pours golden with a small head. Aroma of malt, hops, and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is a surprise as I was not expecting much. Heidbummer (986) - SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Taster at brewpub. Smells of honey, looks like a lager. It’s fizzy and sweet and really not that good. deanso (10287) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - FEB 6, 2017

Thin creamy white head... Cloudy blond pour. jmgreenuk (10378) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 23, 2017
Draft at the Taproom, Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is malt, light hop bitter, some citrus. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a watery light crisp, light fruit, light hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Way too light all around and with little flavour.
