Draft. Golden body with a thin white head. Aroma of toasted grain, light canned corn, grass, floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Crisp and fairly clean — some raw grain taste.

Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is yellow gold with a white head. Aroma shows bready malt and a light presence of noble hops. Flavor shows muffin like malt character with underlying lemongrass, doughy yeast and light florals. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light bitterness.

Enjoyed on tap at the downtown brewpub. 38 IBU and 5.4% abv. Golden and lacey. A mild bitterness, neutral aroma, and so-so drinkability. Served at the right termperature, as their beer generally are.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Fitchburg location - Pours clear golden yellow with a nice foamy off-white head. Pretty grainy nose, with that lovely floral hop characteristic. A touch too starchy. Taste is pretty malty and not as crisp as I’d like, but has a nice floral hop bite that is subtle but just enough. Easy-to-drink but not watery, I could session this all night. One of my favorite GD brews.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Great Dane Downtown. Pours a reasonably clear gold with fine bubbled head that disappears. Nose is very Euro with spicy Saaz notes and sweet graininess from pil malt. Carbonation level is good and on taste, some what sweet with a light bready note and a decent bitter finish. Pretty clean and refreshing, I’ll say.
