3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Frisco Grille it’s a moderately hazy golden yellow with a pure white head. Somewhat of a starchy nose of sourdough, some light lemon, light pils malt and a clean, fresh pillow yeast. Flavor is mildly bitter, mildly dry, with a very clean and inviting crispness to the cracker-flavored malt base, and a mild, musty yeast character throughout. Good stuff.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Overall this is a very interesting beer. On tap at the Bocktown. Smells unique in that it’s mild aroma is a bit rubbery, but in a good way. This beer appears pretty much ubiquitous pale yellow american lager but there is some haze in there, very little haze. Carbonation is above average and welcomed. The flavor has some of that butyl rubber aroma carrying over into the taste. Is weird in that it is slightly tart and hoppy at the same time. Very complex. Can’t figure out if it’s the rubber or the hops that is contributing to the medium bitterness. Finish has a bitter aftertaste that is difficult to identify.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Bocktown (they had it listed as Victory Limited Lager). Wow..different than the few Z/K/Ls I’ve had. Intense floral hop aroma. Smelled like a flower bed with a hop vine growing in the middle. Pour was a nice burnt orange with a 2 finger white head. Taste was very floral and hoppy with a suprise sweet aftertaste. After the sweetness goes away you are left with a bitter hop bite on your tonsils. There is a weird fruitiness as it warms. Very complex and different.
