3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at 515 in Santa Cruz. Clear amber pour with a nice fluffy khaki head. Nice malty and grainy aroma, grains and biscuits with a grassy spicy hop profile. Flavor is bready malts, toasted grains, and caramel with a lightly citric and grassy hoppiness that takes over in the finish. A very full-flavored, well-balanced lager. Super drinkable.
