3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Misconduct Tavern with PJ and Pat. Pours a clear golden body with light lacing. Aroma is plain grassy hop, light catpiss and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of crisp grassy hops balanced by a nice malt bill. Nice pilsner, but next to the Great Lakes Gold, this didn’t stand a chance of getting a refill.

Big breezy floral nose, clear yellow body with smidge of a head. Very crisp and clean pineapple and mango hints, sugary enough midrange with a powerless finish. Nothing to write home about after initially impressing.
