3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a Save-Mart. Pours hazy gold with a 3 finger foamy near-white head. Aroma is floral and citrus. Med body. Flavor is lightly bready with some citrus. Drinks pretty well, but gets a bit too bready in the finish. Then suddenly there’s a strong citrus hit. All in all it’s a decent light lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy golden color with a finger of white foam. A touch of spicy hops with just a hint of citrus. Decently floral as well. A lot of yeast contributions, notably pepper and maybe even a hint of banana. Bready malt makes up the rest. The flavor is a bit bland. It has a strange lemony note on the finish as well. Some notes of floral and spicy hops and maybe some bread/malt flavors.

Draft… Clear golden lager with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. Honey malts, pale grains and a note of wet leather meld to create the bouquet. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is grainy and quite well-balanced. Short, crisp, mostly clean finish with a gentle kiss of toffee.

Bottle drunk in Bryant Park. Pale golden hazy pour with a thick white head. The nose is softly spicy with a little bit of fresh floral hoppiness as well. Fresh and well integrated with a lot of soft floral character over some fresh doughy malts. A little bit of lingering bitterness. Really lovely stuff.
