Minutely hazy old gold color. Aromas of mango yogurt, honey buttered cornbread muffin, and praline with a supple, bright, petillant, fruity medium body and an even, interesting, medium-length honey nut cereal and bit of honey candy, pineapple preserves on toast, and grape skin finish. A fun, fruity lager with crowd pleasing tendencies.

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.
