3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft: at Casta’s 40th B-Day. Grassy, spicy, citrus, bitter. A bit unbalanced; lacks bready wheat characteristic and too bitter / citrusy; just be corrected in the nest batches. Stil way above average! Food Pairing: Arugula Pear Salad.

Bottle, bought in a hotel on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. Bright yellowy amber colour, white bubbly head. Quite a fruity, citrusy hop aroma. Some crisp grainy wheat flavours. Actually quite enjoyable - I don’t normally find wheat ales much to write home about but this was nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this on draft whilst in San Salvador. Was a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is of grass, straw, quite hoppy and floral. Taste was smooth hops and a slightly bitter, grassy and lemony after taste. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz pour at brewpub and Mopelia. Pours a clear light golden with a small white cap. citrus, pepper, caramel, decent fruitienss, few diacetyls though, bit of grass and herbs. low carbonation, light body, short grassy-citrusy finish. Overall a nice APA and a lot better than any of the Pale Lagers El Salvador has to offer.

Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.
