pivnizub (9522) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2015
Bouteille: Deep golden, almost clear, stable off-white foamy layer; moderate dry bitter (herbal to medical) aroma, traces of sweetish malt only in the background; moderate dry bitter flavour, quite light bodied, tart MF; relatively short and slin bitter-herbal finish. Unspectacular, not well balanced…

For a Moosehead beer this is actually pretty enjoyable and badass. I can taste aspects from all of the hops in this handsome golden blonde beer with lascivious lacing; tangerine, white grapefruit, pine, herbal earthiness and light spice all coalesce quaintly. On the malt front, things are well balanced and provide some caramel and biscuit support to the hops. With a chompy medium body and mid carbonation, this brew, packaged otherwise would convince me it was from a "craftier" brewery. Props to Moosehead for taking some time on this one.

gildnerk (176) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. Amber pour with an off-white head. Surprisingly aromatic for a "commercial" beer, with decent grapefruit and spruce hop notes alongside your traditional Moosehead graininess. The beer is somewhat lacking in the taste department, however, and has a rather thin body. Still quite drinkable and pleasantly surprising.
