2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at lake on the mountain inn, no info available at time of purchase but the name inspired hope. Pale straw beer with no obvious head. Soft aroma of light grass, some floral notes maybe. Light lager-like flavor but without knowing if it had been lagered I can’t comment. Some floral hopped bitterness but suffering from carbonation imo. Fizzy palate that was not to my tastes. Not going to set the beer world alight but fine for a lunchtime beer from an unknown quantity.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
No ABV available. Clear medium blond with small disappearing ring of white head. Faint sweet aroma. Nasty taste is solventy and medicinal, biter and harsh. Was it the first pour of the day? Re-sampled from run tap, but still seems medicinal, some sweet barley malt there trying to fight through - amazing they can’t tell it is off.
