3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint draft at The Trappist in Oakland, California. The pour is a mostly clear golden copper with a small white head. The aroma is mineral, spice floral hop and cracker malt. A fresh traditional Czech pils nose. The taste is a clean blend of the spice floral hops, the fresh cracker malt and finishes dry with the mineral character. The palate is light bodied with soft to low carbonation and the dry mineral floral hop finish. Nice.
