030. Shift Pale Lager
Very strong citrus -- with a hint of vanilla? Don't love the mouth. Lighter than expected. More to come.
Lace is much stronger than I expected considering how to thin head is. I was drinking out of a plastic cup and it clung to the side with a determination surprised me. Sweet Spot I first drank it at about 55 degrees and could definitely taste a hint of aromatic hops. These were tastier than I expected considering how light the beer is.
This would make a really good summer beer. Colder is a bit sweeter.
Thoughts from the bottom of the glass:
Color: Very light
Aroma: Lots of citrus
Hops: Faint, but present
Head: White & strong, but not as thick as expected
Lace: Strong: More than expected
Temprature Sweet Spot: 45 - 50 degrees (it really doesn't matter)
My Rating: 7 out of 10
