3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg, The Pony (UES), 19/02/14. Bright lager looks with a narrow white collar leaving lace specks. Slightly vegetal, fried chip, plantain aroma with lime shavings and barley squash. Dry and brittle with curry leaf, woodland notes, lingering popcorn-like pale English malt. Bitter afters more in English GA camp than lager. Expect more from any beer brewed with Citra. Just OK.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Dank piney and grassy hops, clean malty base, moderate bitterness, and a crisp hoppy finish. Looks like the ratings for this one are all over... maybe bottle inconsistency? Anyway, I loved it; a great summer chugger.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Interesting twists here. Presents a slightly-more-hazy take on a classic European pilsner, bright golden with a frothy white head. The aroma is tight and citric. This drinks with what would generally form a solid basis for a great, snappy pilsner. The citra brings an uber-lemon, citric acidity that takes it a great step forward from the "old way." Nicely done. (#5454, 3/8/2014)
