Tap at Ballast Point. The beer pours to a glowing golden body with a white head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity. Flavor is bitter hops with a dash of sulfur. Lots of grains like an artisan bread. The palate is bitter and medium bodied.

Itís refreshing to drink a lager with something more going on than the basic water and cereal malt going on. The hop does indeed add another layer to it, but overall it didnít feel too impressive. Some lemon grass and just plain grass in the aromas. The finish falls a bit short.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Ballast Point Miramar. Pale yellow no head. Faint aroma of hay and honey. Taste is sweet and not unlike a German helles. Finish is quick and more of the same. Not a great beer and actually a bit disappointing.

Large Format - Golden orange color, very little head that dissipated really quickly. Slight sweet flavor but with a little bitterness, neither of which over powers the other flavor. The mix of styles leads to a weird taste, just a little to sweet for me.

Tasting session @ Budapest
Gold color, almost clear. Big white head. Lots of lacing. Not much aroma. Tastes like a hoppy Pilsner. OK.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 3/5/16. Pour to wine tasting glass (I donít care, let me do what I want). Bright and clear, unmistakable gold. Spotty stucco lacing. Bready, doughy peppery malt on the nose, complemented by a stiff lemongrass and citrus peel, white flowers, faint bruised red apple underneath. Flavor has a nice pasty lager presence, bready, very gentle lemon zest and foliage, and same as the nose, some apple-y quality (possibly a result of blending hop/malt profiles and textures). I always find this one interesting. The lager presence is strong and amplified; doughy, pasty linger, with some lemon and bitter flower.
