Hazy gold color. Toasty, grassy, green aromas and flavors of honey buttered peppercorn muffin, brussels sprouts, mango relish, and old hop pellet with a silky, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish light body and a medium-length finish with touches of granola and starfruit finish. A round, juicy, lightly fruity hoppy lager that will appeal to American pale ale fans.

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.
