4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent gold/orange with a creamy near beige head. Aroma is fresh fruit - not citrus. Med body or better. It’s very hoppy. It has a grassy spice bite. Nice caramel background. It gets grassier. Then a little sugar/fruit pops out for a bit. Maybe it’s just fruit. It’s really finishing grassy dry. Blind taste, I’m sure I’d have called out Imperial Pilsner and said it needed more hop. Tho it has a lot of hop, I’m sure there is never enough.
