Brilliant light gold color. Toasty, sulfurous aromas and flavors of ham and egg and cheese croissant, tortilla chips, and struck match with a supple, finely carbonated, dryish light-to-medium body and a breezy orange buttered toast, bibb lettuce, and bit of radish finish. An easy-drinking lawnmower beer that would a good upgrade for a macro drinker.

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.
