3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle best by Dec 2013. Lightly hazed gold with a short head. Lemon / spice spalt-like hop aroma with quiet pale malt / biscuit character. Effervescent carbonation with mild prickly hop acids give it a lot of vibrancy, and the fermentation is clean and the malt expressed well. It’s a little more full-bodied than most lagers / pilsners. As it opens there’s some faint dirtiness / chemical notes but they are quiet enough and outshined by the hop juiciness. Solid lager. Whatever problems they had with previous batches have been resolved. This newer batch (gold label) is quite clean, well-balanced, expressive and drinkable in large amounts.
