March 9th, 2013 - Cismontane’s Holy Jim Falls is a summer treat just waiting to be paired at your favorite seer-sucker attire required party. Light and golden in body, it shines even after sunset, with a hoppy, spritz aroma, touches of mizuna, a squeeze of lime, and even the strong associative scent of tortilla. The flavor is also rooted in the citrus family, most predominantly with dry lemon, lime and hops, and some carbonation. The palate is lighter, too, making this a drink that’s easy to quaff, and to enjoy each chord of lemon and lime.

Medium yellow with a slight haze, big rocky white head that dissipated quickly to nothing and left minimal lace. Lemon, bread and perfume in the aroma. Modest grassy hop bitterness offset by bready malt. Light body, lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a crisp finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Hazy pale yellow with tremendous light and fluffy head that reduced to nothing. Aroma is not pleasant, papery and alkaline, with lemony,citrus. Taste is extra pale, no real malt, slightly citrus with a bit of sweetness and honeylike on the finish. I would not drink a second but could if I were thirsty on a hot day. I have had better.

Mediocre at best it doesn't belong with pale ale near its description. Gets better per drink. Had this weakling on tap - after bolder beers - so possibly a tainted palate.

Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Hazy pale blond color; the head is too large. The fermentation produced a perfumy and spicy aroma (coriander-like), deep; some green apples too, and tea. Bone dry mouthfeel; not much malt flavor, a pit papery indeed; strong bitterness; the hop doesn’t provide enough qualities, instead in the final there is some chicory-like bitterness, which I displease.
Surely designed for summer days, nevertheless unbalanced.

Somewhat lemony aroma. Looks like darker lemonade. Good sizzle, a little creamy on the zest. Bitter citrus peel thing seems like it wants to be a pils kindah thing but never quite gets there. The cut on this makes me move it from a 4 to a 5 in taste. Yes, what turns out to be rather annoying initially, smooths out to an even keel. Glad to have tasted a glass bottle pounder of this rare beer.

Hazy yellow / gold pour. Light lemon peels and some grass perhaps. A lighter version of Lagunitas DayTime, which is much more flavorful.
