Minutely hazy light gold color. Tropical aromas and flavors of citrus and mango marmalades, lemon herb muffin, orange blossom honey, and hint of balloon with a slightly chewy, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-long finish revealing accents of egg-washed peppercorn bread, salted nuts, and radish sprouts finish. A delicious and vibrant lager that hits all the high notes.

American Style Lager

American style lagers are very light straw in color and range in alcohol from 4-5%. These lagers are clean, crisp, and light in body and flavor with low-to-no detectable hop or malt aromas. In addition to malt, many of these beers contain adjuncts such as corn and rice that are used to lessen the body and flavor. These beers originated in the US as versions of the pilsner style. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Capital Supper Club, Stevens Point Special Lager and Full Sail Session Premium Lager.
