3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Pizza Port OB. Clear amber with a one finger creamy and lasting whitehead. Flavor is a little sweet for me, and despite the decent lingering bitterness, I didn’t dig the sweet notes. Not really all that biscuity and lacking the fresh pasta that I get in a good pils. Just a tinge of spicy hops, and I have to dig for those guys. Semi-dry finish, bitterness at a 3 1/2. Had trouble with the nose, fairly weak--maybe a combination of the thick head and low carbonation? Sweet and grainy. Light carbonation witha medium body. Road to Helles knocks this out of the water.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery. Pale golden color with small white head. Aroma is noble hops, so far so good. Nothing special here. Taste is very buttery. Czech-style Pils? not really. The carbonation doesn’t fit either.
