3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
sample from Russian River Brewpub. Color is light yellow with a white head. Aroma is clean with a little bit of spice. Taste is clean as well, with notes of citrus and some mild spiciness from the hops. Well balanced with the malts. Palate is light bodied with medium carbonation. Overall a good "light" beer from RR.

On tap, brewpub. Soft bready notes reminiscent of a helles. Body has snappy effervescence, light throughout. Biscuity notes are forefront, followed by hop bitterness that is exaggerated by the lightness of it all.

On tap at Russian River in August 2009.
A: Yellow straw with a nice, light white head and a good deal of lacing; carbonation visible in the brew’s transparency.
S: Light and refreshing--some pilsner malt with a bit of citrus and is well-hopped for the style.
T: Slightly sweet with some citrus and earthy hops; nothing overpowering, but quite flavorful for the style.
M: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
D: Excellent. Very sessionable and would love to be able to grab a sixer of this one.
Serving type: on-tap
