UPDATED: AUG 3, 2015 2015 rating (5.2%):
Rerate courtesy of heavy, thanks! Poured a shiny yellow body with a tiny white head. Soft, dusty appleay aroma. Taste... ouch... unappealing aggressive herbal taste with some alcohol present even. Impressively bad bitterishherbal finish. I’m reading my old rating and cannot believe these are the same beer... Whatever changes there were were not for the better. 5/3/4/2/10.

The goat on the label is cool :). Anyway, poured a shiny yellow body with a persistent thick white head. Nice grainy nose, notes of rice crackers, slightly oily, almost like a high-tier Czech pils! And the kind of CZ pils I like to boot. Yeah, Czech-style gluey, rice-crackery lovely grainy maltiness. Light, but even a little smokey. With a fresher hop profile this would’ve been a classic, like this, it’s "just" a very good Czechoid German pils! 7/3/7/3/14
