2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear pale gold in color with a cellophane head. Pils malt aroma along with starch, lemons and buttery sourdough. Light first quaff with a nice bready profile. Some grain and corn husks. Balanced for the most part but carbonation comes up short. Gentle baguette finish. Thanks for sharing, JPDIPSO.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 I’m not sure if this was a special batch or a new summer seasonal. It was light and crisp as pilsners should be, but not lacking in flavor as so many are. It had just enough dryness to let hopheads enjoy, without losing its roots to the pilsner style. A great summer thirst quencher.
