Description: The latest addition to Red Arrow’s lineup, this brew is a traditional lager with West Coast influence. It is also aged for an extended amount of time in horizontal tanks to ensure smoothness and clarity.
Tasting Notes: This lager was quite refreshing and clean, and was definitely characteristic of a smooth and somewhat hoppy lager. At the same time, it had a malt characteristic that I’ve found is quite typical of Red Arrow beers – which has a slightly rubbery taste to it. This would seem to indicate that the brewery is still hitting its stride. But they are getting there!
