3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Fuck Store, I mean Brick Store Pub, and I also had the distinct pleasure of enjoying this in bottle form as well. Nice dark coppery appearance with a slightly fluffy head. It looks the same on tap. I hope they start to make more fucking lagers. A nice and fresh hop and malt aroma. There is a slight malt dominance, but it is still smelling great. Nice and crisp Pils hop aroma. Fuck I just had the Heller Bock from Sierra Nevada and this smells exactly the same. Seems a little more pungent, but oh well. Light honey aroma coming from the malts. Malt sweetness dominates. Very smooth and crisp on the tongue. For fuck’s sake I am drunk. Lingering hop bitterness provides a nice flavor. Slight toasted malt flavor. Overall, a nice thick lager. Hey, Terrapin didn’t fuck up on one of their Side Projects, imagine that!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at Rustico. Pours a translucent, orangey amber with a frothy, creamy white head. Aroma is pears, apples, malts, a touch yeasty. Flavor is very sweet, bread dough, yeasty, pear. Full bodied and a little creamy. I expected to dislike this and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit.
