Bright gold color. Toasty aromas and flavors of cheese danish, honeyed peach, and carrots and collard greens with a supple, tangy, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, atypical, buoyant finish that exhibits notes of orange sherbet and spinach finish. An earthy lawnmower 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.
