3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of Porcelainbomb (reddit trader). Pours a hazy golden color with sporadic head that fades quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is lemon zest, big sweet malts and bread, and finally some sharp grass. Flavor is an even mix of sweet malt and lemon bitterness followed by a big dose of bitter hops that diminishes into a clean aftertaste. Palate is quite heavy for this style as the beer actually sits and weighs on the tongue and with the minimal carbonation this feeling increases. Overall, this is a strange pale almost like a Pilsner/Pale hybrid based on the flavors that come through with the strong Pils bready malts mixing so much; also the bitterness is almost off-putting as it doesn’t do well with the sweetness and almost turns an off sour. I would like to try one fresh to compare but it’s barely above average for me.

Clear and golden in appearance. Both the aroma and flavour have an unpleasant grassiness. There is a light hoppiness in the background but overall it feels like a mess.
