3.45/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
12 oz. bottle.
Mostly clear golden yellow body. Pinkie finger of gauzy, eggshell white head. Honeyish cereal malts, fresh bread, a little sweet apple backed by spicy, peppery noble hops.
Lightly toasted grainy bread up front. Spicy, herbal, noble hop flavor and bitterness soon follows. Sweetish honey and cereal malts mid-palate. Dry finish with lingering noble bitterness and honey. Moderate body with some prickly carbonation. Not bad.

On-tap at Prime 16.
A: Clear straw body with a creamy white head. Strong retention and lacing. Very nice indeed.
S: Very sulfury, yeasty aroma; tons of minerality. Light herbal qualities, abut this is more like a standard Euro Pale Lager aroma than I'd like.
T: Boring, but tolerable. A bit of breadiness is there up front, with some moderate hops bitterness on the finish. Flinty minerality provides the balance of the flavor. It's boring, but not bad.
M: Light, moderately carbonated, reasonably creamy body. Pretty good.
O: Meh. I doubt I could pick this out of a lineup that included Stella and Heineken. Weak stuff.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.
Thanks to Naugros for this bottle!
Whatchy'all know 'bout tha ECL!? ... This stuff pours a clear golden straw topped by a finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises white bread, sweet bread (think cornbread without the corn...), grass, and a touch of greens. The taste brings in more of the same, with an overarching sense of mildness pervading everything. That may sound outwardly negative, but it actually works for this beer. Trust me. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a nice little beer, nothing too major in any category, but an easy-drinker all the way.
