GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 8, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 Short: World class pilsner of the gods

Origin: Texas Liquor Carlsbad Sample: 3x12oz Glass: Russian River Nonic Pint Price: $16/4 pack Date: 1/22/14
Long: Thankfully these are now in cans- also thankfully found refrigerated at Texas Liquor. Beautiful pour into the glass grants you with a massive, rocky, white head with sheen hop oil retention. Perfect sheers of lacing. Nose is ridiculous inviting biscuit, orange marmalade, fresh southern sourdough biscuit, flashes of jam and yellow spiced apple. Taste is quite hoppy with perfect malt biscuit backbone- sharp Victory style Prima Pils aggressive bite with a softer finish. Calcium and chalk finale is secondary to a long, lactic finish with huge grassy hop power. Extremely quenching and sessionable, almost begging to be devoured in 4-5 sips. Absolutely outstanding for all lager lovers out there. Wow- if your name is ryan, MrChopin, 3fourths you need to try this beer. Sweet, sweet Jesus. Even if it is stupid expensive, I am going back for more right now.
Flaws: Too expensive at $16 per 4-pack :0
Remedy: Hype this baby up, get this brewery into the limelight
Skill Level: Heater Allen, Victory, Koutska
