Light gold color. Hoppy aromas of orange oil, coconut, mango, ripe apple, and basil with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light body and a seamless, delightful, medium-length lemon bar, toasted Hawaiian rolls, and dried apricot finish. A bright and well-balanced pale lager with big hops on the nose but an easy-drinking palate with little bitterness.

True to their name, pale lagers are pale in color and range in alcohol from 4-6%. These beers are generally light to medium-bodied with a light-to-medium hop impression and a clean, crisp malt character. Pale lagers are the standard international beer style as exemplified by products from Miller to Heineken. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Lager, Birra Moretti Lager and Damm Estrella Damm Lager.
