4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled; color is light yellow with a golden center, lively carbonation produces a fine textured head with lacing. Aroma is grains/cereal, dry pine wood, apricot and orange and grapefruit citrus. Interesting flavor that has highlights of both cereal, biscuit and apple notes typical of lagering that transitions into a slap-in-the-face dose of peppery hops. Im really enjoying this one; the lack of the typical malty sweetness of a San Diego IPA leaves nothing but unadulterated hop flavor. A great deviation from the west coast IPA by a great brewery. I could drink this ALL DAY during a summer beach outing here in San Diego...

It’s 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 didn’t 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.
