Light yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of lemon pastry, caramelized fruits and carrots, and corsage with a supple, crisp, petillant, dryish light body and a smooth, brisk finish with accents of buttered toast, jicama, and dried apple and lemon finish. A breezy quaffer.

Pale Lager

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.
