TAR (2671) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Draught at Spezial in November, 2011 (on the hill): Lightly hazed chartreuse. Creamy, beaming-white head. Vibrantly hopcentric nose of lemon and pepper with accompanying sea air, haylike pils malt, and spruce tips. Wonderfully pungent, perfumey and elegant. Pillowy carbonation. Very natural in texture. Highly quaffable from the start as hops immediately unleash their herbal and spicy bitterness amid a salty mineral tinge which accentuates the dryness. Mild toastiness is present, though the malt is very clean with a feathery delicateness. Very complex and elegant hop character soars and zings with a minty and spicy interplay along with lots of bright grassiness and lemon zest bitterness. Champagnelike. Plenty of nectar to cover the palate and deepen the sharper, more herbaceous hoppiness. Trace lemon candy sweetness, but predominantly bright and zesty with some sprucelike accents, to boot. Rustic yeast signature adds heft to the core. Pils malt provides a beautifully sharp, firm, and dry crackery base. Closes dryly malty and staunchly mineralic with light a flowery succulence but largely zippy and vivaciously peppery with resounding lemony afterthoughts. A dazzling example of liquid harmony. Has pretty much everything I love about Franconian brewing, from the luxurious display of Tettnanger and skillfully extracted pils malt right down to the pronounced yeast bite. This is Prima Pils’ more attractive twin sibling.

anstei (1176) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Tap at the brewpub. Herbal and spicy, medium body with a decent carbonation, and wide in taste and flavour. Juicy. A balance to die for. So simple, yet not boring at all. Yum.

Hazy, yellow-golden colored, medium white head, OK lacing. Aroma is of malt, grainy, bready yeasty, straw. Taste is medium- sweet malt, quite grainy, some bready dough, caramel, some hay and straw, light+ bitterness, dry finish. Light bodied, average carbonation, bit watery. Decent but missing body...
