3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Tin Bucket. Clear golden pour with a tall white head. Super pretty looking beer. Great bread and fresh dough on the nose. Mild fruity esters and plenty of grassy hops. Sort of leafy and floral as well. There is a pretty sharp bitterness to the palate, but otherwise I very much enjoyed this one. Great malt profile that is pretty crisp. Subtle esters, maybe a touch of soap, and vibrant hops. Pretty nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Lemon-forward and bitter with a lot of raw grassy / herbal hop character, similar to what you get rubbing down hop pellets. And the thing is these appear to be American hops, grassy, juicy, dank and high acid. Snazzy, zesty, very new world-ish which is nice to experience, I love lean hoppy lagers, but it does become bracing and rough and a touch of sweet corn syrup and grain husks, well I wish it were a little smoother and used German hops to not come across as so raw and grating.
