3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Very floral massive notes of hops into an almost rose aroma. Sweet notes of spices.
Appearance: White head with a cloudy tawny body.
Taste: Spicy mildly biter hops with notes of lightly spring spices almost like sage or saffron, hard to place and unique.
Palate: Thick with average cavitation with a pleasant yet odd lingering finish that keeps the almost soup like taste well after swallowed.
Overall: My kind of beer to be honest. Unique and balanced hard to find something comparable, I will definitely keep an eye out for this brewer and even this beer

2013 12 oz bottle poured into a Belgian snifter.
Appearance: Body is hazy apricot color with a small head that soon reduces to a ring. Lacing is on the light side.
Smell: Hops are prominent and contribute both grassy and citrus qualities.
Taste: Quite hoppy and fruity for a lager; more than a little similar to an APA. Does have the crisp and clean qualities of a fine lager.
Feel: Light bodied with crisp moderate carbonation. Clean, dry finish.
Overall: an exceptionally hoppy with no loss of drinkability and a clean lager finish. Should appeal to anyone who likes an APA. Refreshing and recommended.
