COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with about a finger of white head. Aroma is faint with slight floral hop notes and a little spice. Flavors of Belgian yeast come through with hints of wheat and floral hops. Very refreshing hybrid of the two styles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Spicy and herbal nose and flavor. Malty with some light spice on the finish as well, which is clean and crisp. Not too many like this one, kinda liked it."

Bright straw, aroma is a touch herbal with light bread. Bitter, lean, fresh pale malt, great balance. I like this.

On tap at Ecliptic, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma is pretty weak, with biscuity malt and light spicy noble hops. Flavour is spicy and dry, with dry grassy hops and a touch of spiciness. Dry palate, making this drinkable. But pretty boring.

Draft pour at Toronado first day. Pours golden with a bready aroma. Really interesting beer here. Kind of a cross between a pilsner and a hefe, with a good amount of hops and spice. Really solid, unique beer. Good stuff.

Bready nose noble hops a little sulfur and egg. Hazy golden pour not much head or lace. Flavors of bread noble hop sulfur a little spicy. Nice carbonation. Meh
