3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Holy Grail. Golden yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of grain and biscuit malt with a hint of hops. The flavor is similar. I get a light amount of bitterness which is accompanies by some toffee and biscuit malt. As the beer warms I also get some light brown sugar in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice traditional pilsner.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2011 On tap at the FW Ginger Man. Sad that it took a year to finally get this distributed to Fort Worth. And yes, I noticed that we were left out on this last year....donít let it happen again.
Pours a very clear golden color with a soft white head. Fairly light aroma. Some sweet grain notes but otherwise itís pretty faint. Flavor is soft floral notes with a nice mix of candied sugar and decorative soap. Finishes floral as well with a gentle bitterness. There is almost a spicy pineapple like fruit flavor in this. Itís there but it disappears quickly as well. Aftertaste burps bring up some floral hops i didnít pick out before. Certainly one of the nicer things to come out of McKinney. Like I said, sucks it took so long.
