NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a pretty standard and very clear gold with stiff white head. Nose has faint herbal hops and a pretty robust malt profile, soft pilsner. On tasting, super clean and fresh. Soft malt profile that is the driving force with some pleasant light herbal hop notes. Quite enjoyable, if simple. Good balance and roundness. Nice!
