Its murky yellow/orange appearance is the only remotely average thing about Old Harbor's Santo Viejo pilsner. It smells crispy and slightly fruity, perhaps of apples. It tastes absolutely delicious. You'll notice most its wonderful peppery character and utter lack of mustiness. The apple-y smell shows up as a welcome background flavor. Pleasant dry & toasty finish. Spritzy, lively mouthfeel. In this and their Kofresi stout, Old Harbor boasts a couple surprisingly good beers.

Serving type: on-tap

(Served in a American Pint glass)

A- This beer pours a clear slightly dense deep copper body with big bubbles popping to the surface where the head boils away even before it forms.

S- The aroma of sulfur is dry but light with a stale malt aroma to follow. Otherwise the smell is pretty clean.

T- The bitey dry hop bitterness has a hint of sulfur with some faint dry Pils malt with a touch of sweetness to it. The finish has a bitterness that lingers a bit. There is a light banana ester note that comes through when the beer opens. It remains light but it is still odd.

M- The light mouthfeel has no alcohol heat and a tight fizz.

O- The big bitey hop bitterness doesn’t really have any malt support except for a slight sweetness and the odd banana ester. The carbonation and bitterness makes it almost astringent. It was a bit hard to get through a bomber of this.
