3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Peg’s for Berliner Bash 2012. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is tart citrus, some light malt, and the tropical fruit and white grape character of those great Nelson hops. Flavor is similar with mild tart citrus and wheat coming into the front followed by a nice Nelson punch. Nice use of Nelson hops in this medium-bodied berliner.

On draft at Berliner Bash, poured a light yellow color, aromas of straw, light hops, and some grass. Flavors are the same, I overheard someone say next to me it tasted like a watered down Jai Lai from CCB, after he said that I would have to agree with him.
