On tap at Joe’s Bar and Grill in downtown Seattle. A yellow amber translucent beer with moderate white head and faint bitter sour nose. Decent bitter hop flavor. Okay. 2.9.

Geruch hopfig, im Geschmack wenig süß. In Abgang bitter, hängt leider ein bisschen nach. Ansonsten: Norddeutsches pils.

malvrich (110) - durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2015
12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass. Best by 09/11/2015. A: A gentle pour yields a small quickly settling head with nice lace patterns and prolific carbonation bubbles. Clear brassy gold color is very nice. S: Light floral hops and sour baguette toast. T: Balanced soft flavors of biscuit and sweet bread quickly followed by bitter hops. Short, dry finish. Very good. A bit of a vegetal note late but not off-putting. M: Light but still full mouthfeel with lots of carbonation though not enough to be out of place for the style. O: I’ve now rated both Summerfest and Nooner. I thought I was sure I preferred Nooner But now who knows. I like them both a lot.

Flaska från SB. Gyllengul klar färg med vit skumkrona. Blaskig besk kropp. Smak av grapefrukt, gräs och lite citrus.

Geruch nicht besonders intensiv, aber schön malzig. Geschmack geht in Richtung Pils, kratzt aber leider im Abgang und auch die Bittere ist etwas unausgewogen.
