Light gold color. Aromas of tangerine, dried pear and pineapple with a silky, soft, petillant, dry light body and a seamless, brisk citrus pith and honey finish. A hoppy lager with a nice bitter backbone.

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.
