rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Tap: orange-amber with large frothy white head. Aroma is definitely lager-like, with grass, bisquit, and some wet newspaper. Flavor is crisp with a dry bitter grass, a hint of honey but no sweetness, and bisquit. It is good for the style, but not my favorite type of beer. Good cold on a hot day.
