3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold, frogs’ eggs bubbles in the thin white head. Great Sprecher potato masher pint bottle - too bad it’s a twistoff. OK label. Diacetyl Bohemian pils aroma. Buttery, nutty sweet, modestly bittered, mineral flavors - this is an OK-drinking beer, but it’s almost savory and would be a great base for a chicken dish - stew, pie, dumplings. Mouthy, with a bready finish and a little hop flourish at the very end. I always look forward to a new Sprecher.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - pint bottle. Medium golden pour, slight cloudiness, nice bubble actions, snow white head. Aroma has some butterscotch accents, a touch of vanilla. Flavor has a buttery back end with some vanilla notes, some butterscotch, some honey sweetness. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Can’t tell if the butterscotch is from diacetyl or it is intended - pleasant at first - turns cloying after a while.

Bottle from... Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham? Maybe? This was last summer and I’m just now entering my notes. Sort of a weaker Sam Adams Noble Pils. Yeah, I think I’m done with that description.
