Simple Berliner. Clear pale yellow body, thin white head, minimal lacing. Straight lemon juice. Just a hint of lactic tartness--of which it could use more. Light bodied, gentle carbonation, nice pop of acidity. Lack complexity.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap at IH Chestnut Hill - Real pale yellow, similar to a Chardonay. Foam only around the rim. Faint funky sour nose. Tart, lemony, a bit must and unclean flavor. Very thin and could use a bit of the syrup flavorings which I didn’t try but could give a good boost of flavor if not overdone.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20120701 tap at IH Lancaster. Lightly hazed straw color with slight head. Aroma is lightly sour, vapors of oakey chard. A bit bland for a berlinner like a couple of the traditional ones, but I guess that’s just a matter of preference. Absolutely clean and refreshing. A growler will be coming home.
