Available in cans and bottles, this classic yellow-gold lager is brewed with Magnum, Mt. Hood and Sterling hops, lending a forward hop character to the nose and palate that lends depth and texture, though it might be surprisingly forward for those who appreciate a more traditionally styled lager. The citrusy, grassy and slightly resinous hop notes are balanced by a malty core of fresh cereal grain, biscuit and sweet bread dough, with assertive carbonation keeping the entire package fresh and vibrant despite the medium body and moderately intense flavor characteristics. Lingering pepper and yeasty spice notes add to the dry, slightly bitter finish. Lauren Buzzeo
