Pale golden yellow color. Green, herbal aromas of aroma of thyme-chive focaccia, honey buttered raisin bread, and damp earth with a soft, crisp, fizzy, sourish light-to-medium body and a tingling, perplexing, roasted sweet potatoes, stewed veggies, and newspaper finish. An earthy, grainy beer for the table.

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.
