Pale straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is lovely - soft and spicy with a lean malt dryness. A bit of peppery character and a bit of light fruitiness. Zesty and a bit flinty. Nice and dry with some lingering bitterness.

GT2 (8270) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Tap at Churchkey for CBC. Pours glowing, full haze bright straw almost neon. Medium meringue head. Swathes of lace. Nose is fresh kiwi, cantaloupe, banana, some stickier esters, light mango and papaya. Just a tad estery. Taste is boss: fresh kiwi, fresh tangerine juice. Huge grassy bitterness, herbal, snappy, ultra refreshing. Long pilsner finish- cracker, sourdough, grassy hops. Could go under any pilsner category.

Can. Pours with a crystal clear yellow hue with a medium to medium large white head that lasts. Aromas are of spicy, earthy and slightly rotten orange like hops (cluster?), herbal, light citrus, mild malt, low esters. Flavors are lightly fruity, grainy, grassy, a bit of floral sweetness and a hint of tropical fruit, doughy. Lightly chalky mouthfeel. Pretty easy to drink. Very lively carbonation, light body.
