Appearance: deep clear gold, with one finger of creamy, fizzy bright white head. Aroma: toasted white bread, honey, creamed corn, light undertones of hay. Taste: doughy, bready, cracker, and sweet, with delicate grassy hops and a restrained hint of citrus. Finish: clean, crisp, and refreshing. Notes: As lagers go, this was extremely well-crafted.

NikkTwist (1648) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Draft at Good Dog. Clear yellow pour. Fizzy white head. Lots of nondescript bready notes off the top. Lemon curd on a bagel. Some weal floral notes as well. Celery stalks. Heather. Daffodils. Straw. Not awful but just feels like a bland golden wheat beer. Nothing to offend.

Tastes like the style. I can never put my finger on it, but has that caramelized, sugary malt. Finishes a little sweet. Pours golden with ok head and lacing. Finishes with some barley crispness. On tap at DC Beer Festival.

Can. Pale gold with a white foam. Aromas are grain with light corn and soapy lemon. Biscuity. Flavours are sweet grain with mellow lemon and a light nuttiness. Dry and soapy to finish. Some herbal leafiness. Better than its description.

Bote de 330ml. Copa Flauta @ Freiburg (L´Hospitalet-Barcelona). Color oro pálido y cristalina. Espuma blanca, corona tupida con bastante buena retención. Aromas picantes, florales, de levadura y hierba. Entrada malteada y vivaz redondeada por matices leves de pera y manzana. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación moderada aunque chispeante. Textura de malta pálida y toque picante junto a un amargor limpio que aflora en el intermedio permanecen en un amargo/dulce final. Retrogusto reseco. Un trago fácil!! 330ml can. Footed flute glass @ Freiburg (L´Hospitalet-Barcelona). Pale gold color, clear appearance.. White froth, close crown & fairly good retention. Spicy, floral, yeasty & grassy aromas. Malty & crisp upfront rounded by hints of apple & pear on the back. Light body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Pale malty texture & spicy touch. Clean bitterness arises in the middle & lingers into a bitter/sweet finish. Dried aftertaste. Easy to drink !!
