Gravity cask at redlight redlight. This is a very light golden lager. It isn’t all that complex but it is very refreshing especially in Florida where it is late October and still 90+ degrees outside. Seriously, I hate the weather here.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ceramic mug. Rich herbal aroma is spicy with complex malt toastiness and fresh hop. Farmhouse...rustic character with minerals, earth and dry herbal hopping. Quality and balance. Delicious example. Re-samples at Tapas Bar have backed this up.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2011 2011-02-13, draught at Café Abseits, Bamberg, 7-3-6-3-13=32
Cloudy blond color; creamy head. Delicate but nice malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, sweetish malt flavor, with decent hopping. In good conditions and refreshing.

Hazy blond color; big head. Wonderful aroma of hops and malt, pure Pilsener. Excellent malt flavor and good hopping, but less impressive than the aroma, light traces of herbal hops, missing the ending freshness and kick that I find sometimes in my reference Pilsner (Tipopils). Excellent!

Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Dickinsonbeer loves this stuff. Beautiful head. Extremely clean and crisp, with squash and German hops. Extremely easy drinking, a mild vegetalness in the malts complements the very fresh hop finish. Awesome.
