12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear deep gold body supporting a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up smooth soft yet rich citrus hop extract enhanced grapefruit notes as well as malt sweetened orange peel. Well, behind those notes I get a sense of lager-y yeasty esters but I’m not sure I would notice them if I wasn’t expecting to smell them. The taste is similar with a pleasing clean citrus hop extract flavor that tugs onto a wedge of resiny citrus hop bitterness and those notes seem to go back and forth for a while. In the background is a light sense of the lager yeast presence as well as a faint malt backbone. This is pretty darn nice as well as hoppy.
Bottle pours a partly cloudy gold with a two finger puffy white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is pine and some fruit. Taste is a little fruity, a little lemony, adequate sweetness. Finishes with medium bitterness. Aftertaste lingers. nittanytide (288) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2016
Poured pale gold with a thin, foamy head. Grassy aroma. Taste is grass and grapefruit rind. Interesting hoppy lager. reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
355ml bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is leafy with citrus and caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a leafy and citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nice hop forward IPL that is balanced and tasty. rjplumer (1156) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Soft citrus and grass aroma. Clear deep golden amber body. A smooth malt fruit combination. Some bitterness. A velvet like finish. onceblind (10330) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Clear sun kissed orange/gold with a thin white cap. The aroma is quite bitter and grassy with a kiss of lager and orange zest. Crisp and lagerish flavor with plenty of German blonde grains and lager yeast but also with a nice citrusy bitterness. Bright and a little leafy and quite lagerish with a biscuity finish.

Bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear medium orange amber color, white head that drops to a cover, strips of lace. Aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is caramel malt and tropical citrus fruit that adds light fizz on the swallow, and drifts from there to a finish that gradually grows more bitter. Decent, easy-drinking, balanced brew. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Nice inviting amber body with medium head. Nose is nice and toasty, of hops aplenty and some spices. Taste is hops up front too and nice and sweet and floral. Sweet honey finish. Quite nicely done. r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Very light, but full and crisp. Punchy with citrus zest and a good bit of hops, but not all that bitter. Very drinkable and refreshing. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Thanks iNBe. Nicely balanced I’ll say. Grassy herbal hops with biscuity malty sweetness. Serving: Bottle
