4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Max’s. Pours a hazy pale straw color; bright white head with fine-bubbled lacing; very nice pour. Very pleasant, dry herbal and mineral hoppiness in the aroma; some sticky resinousness and juiciness from the hops, but otherwise dry. Medium mouthfeel: lively carbonation; spicy, herbal and mineral bitterness; dry, toasty core, showing a touch of breadiness and chewy malts; excellent dry pils with generous, intricate hoppiness.
