Minutely hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of fresh raw corn, underripe apricot, green tea, and breakfast soufflé with a round, vibrant, effervescent, dry medium-to-full body and a medium-length lemon zest, oyster cracker, poppyseed, hint of roasted nuts, and bamboo finish. A balanced, refreshing lager with an underlying hop presence and roasty nuance.

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.
