(En fût à Gordon Biersch Mission Valley San Diego): Des épaves de raisins verts, pommes, très délicatement installés dans un lit de paille. Des minéraux, de la chlorophylle et un zeste de lime en très petite quantité s’occupe du reste. Très filiforme et hautement engouffrable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a weak bright white head. The aroma offers up sweet malt, bready cracker like sweetness and then light notes of fruity esters along with faint noble hoppiness. The taste is similar with sweet malts, sweet bready sort of cracker cereal like notes and then a light spicy to earthy lime like noble hoppiness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a slightly grassy Pilsner-ish beer in the vein of cheap European lagers, which coming from me is not meant as an insult. It’s very clear and yellow w/ a head of mixed bubbles. It’s lightly sweet, a little sticky w/ a lightly oxidized pale malt character. It’s full bodied w/ creamy carb and finishes w/ a touch of sweetness and some lingering bitterness. This stuff is pretty alright. There is nothing horribly wrong w/ it anyway.
