Golden straw color. Toasty aromas and flavors of buttered toast, tortilla, and hint of beeswax with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish revealing suggestions of watercress and starfruit. An appealingly crisp and toasty, highly quaffable Lager that is sure to please.

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.
