UPDATED: JUN 8, 2012 Served on-tap at the Brewery.
A - Pours clear golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty streaks of lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of bready malt, grassy hops, light spice and some light fruitiness. Nothing too over the top, just a solid nose with a slightly above average hop addition.
T - Starts off with a mix of chewy malt and grassy hop bite slowly giving way to hints of light sweetness, dash of spice and some dulled fruit. Finish has some light chewiness but it doesn’t linger for very long. The crisp feel combines with the light flavors to make this one extremely easy to drink.
M - Medium-Light body and flavors with moderate carbonation. Clean, crisp and refreshing feel from start to finish.
O - Really enjoyed this one. Troegs really does have these German beers down pat. Now if only they made one of these more than once...
