3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A clean and moderately hoppy blonde lager. Basic decent session beer.
How: Tap at Capones PA, first RBSG 2011 bus-trip pit-stop
The look: Clear yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Typical clean lager nose with light grassy notes. Taste is fresh cereals, some refreshing tropical fruits, a light tartness, some dry grassy hops with a light spicy twist. A straightforward session Premier Lager that could pass as a Kellerbier. I drank this one during our first pit-stop of the RBSG 2011 bus trip after drinking a bunch of beers in the bus. I was already drunk and it was only 11am, does that make me a drunk or just totally awesome? I vote for totally awesome

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malts, floral hops, citrus fruits, and toffee. Taste of toffee malts, some toast, a bit of pine, citrus, and a sweeter, almost corny, finish. Nothing too special, hoping for a nice Keller Pils one year.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Capone’s.
Pours a clear golden color with a single-finger white head and some nice sticky lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a bit of straw and grain along with a strong thrust of floral hops. Lots of nobility in this one. Some herbal characteristics as well, though mostly floral. The flavor is a really nice split between light straw-like grain and a robust bouquet of Noble hops. Really, really beautifully done. Light and crisp with a moderate-to-heavy bitterness (for the style) in the finish. Really excellent. What an example of what this style could be. Very, very well done, sirs.
