3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Rustico in Alexandria, VA.
Pours a slightly-hazed golden color with a big, white head. Good amount of lacing after the head finally recedes. Good spicy, earthy hops aromas with some grain in the background. The grain takes over a bit more with the taste, but hop notes definitely still present. Fairly thick body, and along with that comes a good alcohol kick, although nothing too substantial. Very nice and clean. Great hot weather beer.
Serving type: on-tap

7/17/10. 750mL bottle courtesy mikey711! Cloudy golden pour with a BIG bright white head that is fluffy but fizzes away to clumps pretty fast. The aroma is clean dry pilsner malt with hints of fruit and grass. The flavor is rather sweet malts at first, almost a little syrupy and thick, but then a dry grassy bite takes over and cleans it up. Not bad!

Bottle. Pours a hazed golden color with a medium sized white head. Fuzzy musk, big noble hop aromas. Sweet malt, and a nice spicy hop component. Sweet and grassy. Lots of earthy noble hop stuff coming through. Crisp and grainy on a long bitter finish. Pretty nice.

Dry malt flavors, buscuity, toasty with some layed back hop notes, faint citrus, earthy/grassy notes, light vinousy shards and a bit of phenols, little bandaidy, ya know? Dry finish, grainy, pithy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine (an exclusive, which sucks). Pours bright golden with an abundant foamy white head and nice lacing. Nose of grassy hops, honey, and bread. Mild floral notes. Taste shows much more malt sweetness and more quotidian hop notes. A letdown compared to the nose. Not bad, though.
