3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewery. Clear gold with a lasting medium-sized white head. Spicy and floral aroma with some crackery malt and a light mineral touch. The flavor is pretty hoppy for the style, with lots of spicy noble flavors. Malt is there but a bit one dimensional. The finish is on the sharp, mineral/metallic side, which is pretty much par for LGBC beers. The body is a bit sharp as well. This has the elements of a nice hoppy pils, but could use a richer malt balance and smoother profile overall.
