On draught at Occidental Humbug Lager Fest. Clean, crisp, and really refreshing. Bright, slight citrus and hop notes. A nice alternative for the holidays.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Cloudy, foamy. This is not a hop-bomb American pilsner, not by a long shot. Tastes more like a lager. Very dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Lightly hazed gold with a short white head. Aroma is lightly malty and minimally hoppy, smelling husky and starchy with only quiet touches of lemon / herb noble hops. There’s a strong saw dust quality that I just can’t get past. Medium-light bodied, lightly sweet with medium bitterness. Silky / creamy texture and soft carbonation but the ingredient expression is poor and the huskiness limits the appeal for me. Indistinct and bland.

N: Pilsner malt, grist, pine, earth, and cracker. Dull hop leaves.
T: Sweet and bitter. Not too clean, however.
M: Light body, spritzy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: A bit of a muddy beer. I prefer something far cleaner and more drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Classic bready pils. Sharp carbonation, cereal, grass and hay. A bit of a bite on the back end. Good balance between slightly sweet malts and herbal hops... 2014 even better."
