3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Small Bar Division (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice glowing amber gold hue, light haziness, and moderate frothy whitish head dies to a film, laces ok. Aromas are pale malts, dry florals and touches of chalk. Grass, touches of citrus, a lot of floral and earthy German hops. Touches of lemon, dry toast. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, with dry bread dough and toast moving into bigger earthy hops that throw dry grass, touches of lemon, florals, a touch of lemon cookies with a light spicy floral hop appeal. Into the finish it’s dry and bitter, floral hops and more citrus grow, very dry with a touch of piney hops. Light, but dry and bitter. Earthy dandelion and weedy dry hops. Very German hop slanted without a big citrus hop bent. Solid German styled IPA, however it seems to preach a less complex and fruity hop profile for me. Ok. Very dry and earthy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at BT. I really liked this one. Pours a nice clear blonde pils-like with good white head. Aroma is bready, pils, crisp, mineral, toast, good fresh green herbal hops. Flavor is soft, pils malt, toast, light mineral and moderate bitterness, from a grassy green hoppiness, herbs and loaded with fresh german hops, get a slight fruitiness in the middle as it warms- honeydew melon? Strange but very good - crisp clean finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Smallbar Division. Pours a burnished gold, mostly clear. Sticky white head. Nose is pretty much what I would expect from a Bavarian Pale Ale. It seems to showcase fruity Continental malts with a spicy hop profile. The balance is interesting at least. A German IPA, if there ever was one, though I think they could have had the hops shining more, demonstrating the nuances. Prima Pils can show them off, why not this beer. Just okay.
