3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy blond kind of like Christoffel. Pale malt nose with light ginger. Extra ginger - the assertive ginger is a riot, the hoppy snap is fun...nice brew. So untraditional but yet so tasty, even when viewed as a pils (which nominally it is intended to be).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Very pale straw coloured brew topped by a thick white head. Aroma is lightly herbal and grassy. There is a kiss of a slightly vegetal (pumpkin?) character but it is quite subtle. As it warms, this comes up a bit along with a kiss of ginger/clove and light pumpkin. Flavour however, shows a nice noble hop flavour. Fairly yeasty and a bit lemony. Further warming pulls up a bit of light spiciness that seems like a mix of spice and hops. Flavour is quite zesty with just a hint of something else. I thought this might be an overspiced pumpkin beer, but it’s really an exercise in restraint, producing a subtle twist on an otherwise pretty nice pils.
