Troegs Scratch 60- Spring Fest Lager

I picked up a case of Troegs Scratch 60- Spring Fest Lager from the brewery on release day. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy beige colored head that leaves some speckles on the glass. The aroma consists of lemon, caramel, grass, and toffee. The taste is easy and smooth with a large caramel base. Hints of lemon and some grassy hops touch the sides of the mouth to provide some variety, and a touch of pepper is available on the finish. As it warms, some toasted malts peek their way through the sweetness. The alcohol content is 5.1% ABV. This is a very easy drinking beer with a great flavor profile. It doesn’t try to be something it’s not and too intense, but just right. In a way, kind of like Spring.
