3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I generally don’t like comparing beer as I don’t like comparing athletes that much but this was about as awesome as New Belgium Hoopy Bock. Something about a hoppy lager and the thickness of the beer when done right is really fun. Pours golden with medium white head and splashes of lace. Smell is bits of spice (rye), citrus, crisp sweet maltiness. Taste is maltiness, hoppy citrus, floral and finishes with a creaminess but also a light body. The latter part is something that I have found in really nice lagers. Solid.
