3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home, courtesy of Felipe. Thanks man! Pour is clear golden with a big white head and sticky lacing. Lemony, orange peel, grapefruit, grassy, biscuit, light straw, floral, and dough aroma. Taste is lemony, orange peel, light grapefruit, grass, straw, light weed, and minerals with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Solid beer, although I don’t know how much of a pilsener it is.

Clear orange with a foam that doesn’t last, but is attractive none the less. This is listed as a Pilsener however, it is definitely not your typical lagert. Russian River calls it a session ale. Smells, tastes, and finishes closer to an IPA. Citrus, hay, and mild bitterness. Finishes well too. There is NO wine in this beer.

They should've tried making wine, then. Does have a beautiful appearance, though.

Poured from a bottle by campfire. Great frothy head, not huge but long-lasting. God lacing, creamy, tart citrus, pepper flavor in the back of the throat.

Thanks again daysinthewake.
Pours a lovely hazed copper with a solid quilt of soapy light yellow foam. Smells of plenty of resiny and grapefruity hops with a slight lagered, english malt background. Taste is more malty than I had anticipated and the hops are present, albeit reserved with a very crisp and easy feel. The malt seems slightly oxidized, which would be better complimented with a few more late hop additions. Medium bodied with liberal carb and a slightly slick finish. I like this beer overall, although I don’t think it meets the usual standards of the RR lexicon of beers. I would drink this with a simple meal like barley soup.
