tmoreau (1928) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2013
3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap in the brewery’s tap room, and dispensed to a house pint glass, showing a bright & clear, deeper golden color than the Heavenly’s, but with less presence to a head that was modest, soft white, and quickly diminishing, and lacing that was light and spotty. A distinct lager scent was present in the aroma, with light yeast, a hint of hop spiciness, and a touch of Pils malt corniness. The taste started with a subtle sweetness, was light to medium in body, and well carbonated to successfully propel the smooth malt and the moderate, lightly lingering, hop bitterness into a finish that was crisp & clean. Fuller in body & character than the Heavenly, but just as sessionable!
