Alpine Glacier Lager

Bought a sample 12 pack from Hy-Vee, but to our dismay, we found that a majority of the beer included was stale and therefore, unrateable. However, this beer from Tommyknocker was not a part of that majority.

Appearance: Rich yellow gold and has a slight haze with a filmed head.
Aroma: A bouquet of floral aroma, some grassiness.
Taste: This lager starts sweet, followed immediately by long, dry bitterness. Finally, there is a hint of grassy pine at the finish that clings to the palate.
Mouthfeel: Smooth initially, then the carbonation brings in a crisp bite of strong pilsner like bitterness.
Overall Impression: This is a really great lager that is filled with both sweetness and complementary bitterness. A fresh, rewarding brew.
