About Shift Pale Lager by New Belgium Brewing Company

New Belgium employee-owners work in shifts to brew to life world-class beers. Those efforts are rewarded daily with a shared end-of-shift beer. We're passing that welcomed occasion onto beer drinkers in this Shift Pale Lager. Think American pale ale meets American lager. It's easy to drink, crisp and congratulatory. So, clock out and crack open a Nelson Sauvin-hopped Shift Pale Lager to reward your work. Or play. Or, if you're like us, combine the two and surround yourself with drinking buddies.

Tasting Notes:

VISUAL
Deep dark straw with copper highlights in this crystal clear brew
AROMA
Delicate interplay between the subtle flavors of American hops and Specialty malts- the hops bring fruity (nelson), citrus (cascade) and floral/herbal (liberty) aromas. While the specialty malts exhibit toasted bread and a touch of sweet honey.
MOUTHFEEL
Crisp and clean- just like you would expect from a great Lager. That finish just begs you to take another sip.
BODY
Medium-Light
