4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle courtesy of rayl101, thank you so much! this is indeed a special lager, very good stuff. pours very crisp and clear light gold with a small white spongey head. the aroma is very crisp with a good bit of piny notes and some slightwer floral as well. the flavor is just gret, with a great progression on the palate. the adjunsts and hops play very nicely off each other here. its got a moderately oily mouthfeel, but is still very light, crisp and refreshing. the hops surge up in the aftertaste beautifully here. really enjoyed this one.

On draught at Fourth Street Bar & Grill during the Bells Tap Takeover on 10/12/2011: Pours a clear golden color with a medium lasting white head. Short strings of lace. Aroma of biscuity malt and hops. Medium, crisp body with flavors of grainy malt, herbal hops and citrus. The finish is fruity at first and leaves a grassy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.
