Skagit River "Shorty’s Premium Lager"
Skagit River Brewing Company - Mount Vernon, Washington USA
American Pale Lager (ABV 4.2) (IBU 27)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 2/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a clear medium amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white rocky head that was fully diminishing and had fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, citrus hops and a sweaty yeast with a mild note of caramel and an adjunct (corn).

The taste was mildly acidic with a hint of caramel from the onset, becoming a bit hoppy with a strong adjunct presence and a decent bitter citrus peel finish. The flavor lasted a good while with a bitter citrus peel taste lift to lie on the taste buds for a little while longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body and mildly dry in texture with a moderate carbonation.

Overall a brew that starts out with a kind of weak presence, but finishes moderately bitter and rather tasty. This along with the low ABV and a mild hoppiness, make it a perfect choice for your Summer BBQ...
