3fourths (8875) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Draft at Avenue Pub. Clear gold with a short white head. Clean fermentation allows both malt and hops to be expressed well, the former as toasted grain and warm bread, the latter as lemon zest, cracked pepper, and dandelion. Light bodied, lightly sweet with moderate bitterness and intense hop oiliness and juiciness in the mouth, finishing lip smacking and just salivating enough to demand another pull.

Draft at Superior Seafood, New Orleans. Pale straw color with white head. Aroma of malt and grains. Taste of malt, hay, with some light hops bitterness. Okay.

canned at Superior, cold golden pour with white foam, off putting cerealy metallic aroma and flavor, hard to finish, maybe a bad batch?

My Bottom Line:
This seamless, dry quencher is the setting for hay-like cereals and herbal hops, the latter’s character latching on the tastebuds with every succulent sip.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the misty pale golden.
-This resembles a Pilsener with citrusy suggestions.
-Just like a well-made session lager, this brew’s flavor dosage is built so that you never get tired of the flavor profile and actually feel like getting another one once your last sip from the pint is taken. Great job on that front as well!
-The aroma could be more indicative of what the flavor profile will offer in terms of hoppiness.
-This is as professional as their other brews. High quality stuff all around.

On tap at The Ole Saint.

Pale malts and citrus in aroma. The flavor is pilsner/citrus and a lightly bitter finish
