3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from CBC. Thanks to last night’s discovery on a bottle of Von Trapp Dunkel I was able to hold this up to the light in the store and discern the "best by" date... 11/29/16. Pours a beautiful clear golden with a white head. Aroma is light malts, grass, slight hop spice (Saaz?). Flavor is crisp, slightly sweet, light grains, grass, a hint of Saaz hop spice at the finish. A well crafted example of a style that I don’t usually seek.
