Bottle. Hazy golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of bread, citrus, flowers, mango, light yeast esters, earth and biscuit. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of citrus, bread and grain. Nice and clean. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice.

Draft at the Whiskey Soda Lounge in Brooklyn while waiting for Pok Pok. Fun choice of a house beer, a lux version of the normal sweet lager available in SE Asian restaurants. Thick honey lager, very macro style but a bit cleaner, refined and tastes like better ingredients. Style isn’t great but this is a nice fun version.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright sweetbread, yeast and almost citrus aroma. Like wheat beer somewhat. Cloudy yellow, a ton of head for a pils. Medium bitterness, sweet chase follows. Great crisp, biting body. Not like some softer pils, this one has cojones. Good example of a style beer snobs look down on.

Pale golden pour with a thick white head. Bright spicy nose with a zesty hoppiness and a nice crisp maltiness. Fresh and assertively hoppy. A bit of bright juicy hoppiness. Lovely.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint on tap. First Evil Twin beer, bout time! Cloudy bastard, dull golden color, light honey in it. Medium-large persistent head, with great lacing. Aroma is appetizing, perfect for the style, sweetgrains, but bitter, too. The mouthfeel is not overwhelming, distinctly medium, with average aftertaste, light and creamy. Pleasant overall, with grassy notes prevailing, and distinct pils bite. Man, the germans would be jealous if they tasted this, better than theirs! Just lacking a tiny bit of something, but I couldn’t say what - I’ve only had one better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (lemon, flowers, herbs, grass, resin), hint of DMS.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, faintly vegetal.
Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation.
Pretty solid brew...vibrant and complex hop character that doesn’t completely clobber the nice toasty malt in the background. Crisp and balanced in the mouth, and nice fluffy carbonation. Maybe a touch of vegetal character but overall pretty clean and very easy to enjoy/quaff. And looks great too...little bit of haze and well-lasting head. Not a "wow"-inducing beer, and a bit modernized, but quite pleasant.
