chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2014
On tap at the brewery. IBU - 30. Excellent clarity in the golden body; good head and very good lacing. Aroma: spicy baked bread. This is malty for style (the "imperial" part?) despite a normal hop load. Hints of toffee and baked fruits. O: a fine looking, very malty pilsner.

Draft at Mellow Mushroom during the $1 off Shock Top pints special. Crystal clear golden yellow color. Aroma of white pepper and straw. Taste is herbal and slightly medicinal. Is it the lines or the beer?
