Fort George "1811 Lager"
Fort George Brewery - Astoria, Oregon USA
American Lager (ABV 5.1%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a large white rocky head that had good retention, reducing slowly down to a large cap with some fair streaky lacing.

The aroma of a light straw malt, floral and grass hops and a mild soapy yeast with notes of caramel, an adjunct (corn) and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was bitter from the word go with a mild caramel sweetness and finished rather hoppy with a slight citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a nice long time after the swallow with the hoppy bitterness left lingering on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few shades beyond light in body with a light dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a nice hoppy Lager with a smooth refreshing feel...
