Pale copper color. Aromas of ginger-peach tea and scone with a slightly chewy, crisp, effervescent, dry light-to-medium body and an interesting, medium-length buckwheat blini, roasted pecan, and dried herbs finish. A toothsome, dry and nicely balanced pale lager built for substantial pairings.

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.
