3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Keg) 330 ml at Birra+. Pale canary yellow, slightly hazy, with a big, creamy and persistent white head. Plus a fresh hop cone on top of it! The nose is dominated, in the beginning, by white bread and dough, quickly followed by grassy, herbal and resinous hoppy notes. Slight tropical as well. Tiny sweet taste upfront, but it’s all about the huge, clean and pleasent bitterness. Extremely refreshing and thirst quenching. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. A beer I could drink every day withouth getting bored. So solid!

Would. Excellent robust hop profile with notes of lemon zest, pepper, a bit of resin, clean and extremely dry, solidly above-average bitterness for the style. Tasty and way easy to drink, about as good as beer can be.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. 12oz cocktail type glass, $11 for the pour, christ. Low haze light golden, smaller soapy white foam. Spotty lace. Nose is soft, fresh, fragrant garden and grass, cantaloupe, sweet valencia orange, flashes of beautiful limeade. Has the right notes, but not so expressive. Yellow apple comes through. Taste is very bitter, harsher grapefruit rind and potpourri, light metallic bite that plagues the tap beers at Paradiso. Light butter biscuit tries to peek through. Doesn’t ever quite come together unfortunately. Disappointing as the finish is punishing rather than balanced or complete. Feels simply too kettle hoppy and out of balance. Carbonation is lively, nearly refreshing. Finishes with metal and kettle hop palate abuse.

Tap at Maxs. Big creamy white head on top of a hazy yellow-tan body. Has some buttery tones, but I guess those could be considered true to style. Creamy and easy on the palate, Delicate earthy hops, no spicy bitterness, but there is some resin in the aftertaste. Really separates itself from other styles, quite defined for a boho Pils. OK. Pretty cool beer.
