Spica is the brightest star in the constellation Virgo. This Lager is brewed in the Un-filtered Kellerbier style. Pale malt is used exclusively to give the beer a nice malt body and light golden color. Sterling hops add a rich herbal character. The yeast left in the beer works with the hops to add a nice spicy flavor.

Pint in "b2 taphouse" in S.Salem. $4.00 very slightly hazy golden beer with a small white head. Aroma a good mix of caramel,almost chewy malt and fresh soicy and herbal hop quality. Smooth balanced flavor with the hops just about winning out. Nice smooth mouth feel medium carbonation Good beer here.

Cloudy pour, absurdly large foamy head -- holding baroque mountainous shapes -- no matter how hard to I try to pour without it. When I finally get to the beer (a straw might have helped) it’s quite nice. Spicy hop aroma with some unexpected dust, flavors bring an abundant and tasty hop base. Pilsner like, rich full bitterness, not all that much of the hefe bananas going on. Dang, I really like this one. A nice beer and an extra bonus point for being out of the box. There’s a truism that US craft brewers just hop the shit out of things and then you can’t tell they suck -- and while this veers in that direction, this is far more than a cheap hack. It’s a creative and delicious beer.

brokensail (13755) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 25, 2015
On tap @ Ecliptic. Hazed golden colored beer with a white head. Bready and grainy up front with a fair bit of grassy hop. Somewhat fruity and estery as well. There’s a fair bit of grassy and earthy bitterness to this one. Maybe a light herbal quality as well. But mostly, this is just kind of sweet, griany, and fairly estery.
