COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Golden colour, floral bouquet and light flavour of newly mowed hay.

Brewed with great care using only malted barley, hops, medium-soft water and a bottom-fermenting yeast; matured at low temperatures to bring out its delicate flavour and soft hop-character finish.

The cold maturation period allows the bottom-fermenting yeasts to secondary ferment and improve the lager’s flavour, purity and condition.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
355 bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours pale gold with a frothy creamy 4 finger white head. Aroma is sweetly bready with hints of citrus and light pitted fruits. Med minus body. Flavor sort of fits the aroma, but it’s a very mild set of flavors. Still much more interesting than American macros.

Bottle from Ramirez Liquor. Pale golden color with a white head. Grainy sweetness on the nose, apple, grass, soap, and biscuit. A touch of earth and some fruity esters. The flavor is a bit stale. Old bread, apple, soap, and grass. Kind of just grainy and sweet.
