Prairie Lager

First beer to grace the pages of my current beer log. I tried it for the first time back in March and a second time 2 weeks ago when I bought the Berghoff sample 12 pack.

Appearance: Poured into a Goose Island pint glass, served extra
cold. Smooth, clear, yellow color with highly visible bubbles on the side of the glass.
Aroma: Not much need to acknowledge the aroma, it is neat and crisp like any other lager.
Taste: First sip is noticed above all by the bite of carbonation followed by a delicate bouquet of fruit-like complexity induced by the crispy lagered finish. Surprisingly there is less of a lager malt/hop bitterness than most lagers. Yet it finishes the palate very clean with only a slight hint of citrus.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied and crisp with a fair amount of carbonation
Overall Impression: Above all, I think I taste some notes of peach or apricot in this one, therefore making it a highly refreshing lager beer for the summer.

T1 (3/14/10): 88/100
T2 (8/29/10): 85/100
