3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Fiddler’s Inn.
Clear light amber pour. Some nutty malt and a big of hoppy crispness on the close, slightly earthy, lots of taste -- I’m just amazed to discover we’re looking at 3.3 ABV. Water down by 3% and this baby would be legal in Utah! I would have called it at 5% at least. Props to Skagit for this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the brewpub in Mt Vernon, Washington. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and an average sized white ring. Aroma of light caramel malt, citrus zest, and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of light apple, caramel and more grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with a lingering bitterness that almost could put this into an American Pale Ale category. Nicely hopped premium lager overall.

On tap at Skagit River in Mt. Vernon, WA--Poured a pale clear straw golden hue with a frothy thick white head. Clean, grainy, mildly citrus nose. Very drinkable, great mouth feel, hop zest and clean, non-pervasive finish.

22 oz. bomber. Shiny, clear gold in color. Nice, frothy head settles quickly but keeps a bubbly cap throughout. Not much there on the nose, maybe just a hint of grain. It has a respectable hop bite, and a smooth mix of grains and citrus zest. It is really drinkable, and of course, ultimately sessionable. Quite a surprise in this bottle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold with a soapy white head. Sour bready/doughy aroma with some grassy hops. Flavor has some up front lemon bitterness followed by bready malt and a grassy finish. Light, didnt realize it ws 3.3,but still a nice lager. Probably the most flavorful low alcohol beer I have ever had.
