GBBF. Light haze on this pale gold beer. Few bubbles for a head. Smooth palate, light and dry. A little sherbet lemon and a little nettley pine. Not bad but a tad dry.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden color with a white head. Fruity ester aroma with a strong biscuit character, some floral hops, and a lot of yeast. A nice bit of earth, bread, and a hint of grass. There’s a slight lemon peel note to the flavor which provides a bit of bitterness. Some sweet pale malt and biscuit notes, a bit of yeast, and lots of floral hops. A light earth and grass character, too.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Hazy pale yellow body, small fizzy white head, moderate lacing. Nose is cracked pepper, grassy hops, and some lemon zest. A bit zippy like a fresh pilsener. Flavor follows suit with lemon and cracked pepper taking center stage. Light bodied. Crisp finish. A pleasant, but simple beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at CK thanks to Travlr. Pours a clear golden. Nose is noble hops and melon. Thick biscuit. Mmm. Taste is thicker, bitter, buttery, heavy biscuit. Earthy and peppery. Really nice. Comes across as a pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Churchkey. Clear gold pour, white head and spotty lacing. Very leafy aroma, peppery german hop, a bit of diacetyl. Taste is good, a bit grainy , peppery hop finish. A little bit intense both in aroma and taste. Props for the little guy some other time.
