Hazy yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of veggie taco with mango-papaya relish, white bread dough toast, and lemon chiffon with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a silky, interesting, medium-length finish with touches of lemon-honey vinaigrette on salad with blue cheese, sourdough toast points, artichoke hearts, and melon rind finish. A savory, earthy session beer.

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.
