3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a pilsner glass - An average-looking yellow lager, but with a big frothy white head. Grassy-malt aromas. Flavor is bready and hoppy. More grass in the middle. Alcohol is well masked with the light honey sweetness, but it goes down smoothly so it hits hard and fast. OK, but give me an IPA over this any day!

Bottle from Olbutikken. Nice citrussy aroma but not in your face. Clean maltiness with marked bitterness. Nice pine and citrus taste, very much like Sierra Nevadas house style. One of the best hoppy lagers I’ve tried.
