Drank on-tap at Flatbread Company, Somerville, MA
Served in a pint glass

Crystal clear golden appearance. The liquid was topped by a thin film of white froth that quickly dissolved.

The nose was incredibly mild. Initially, I had a very difficult time picking up anything. As the beer warmed, subtle notes of pale malts and hints of sulfur came forth.

The flavor profile had a lot more going on than the nose. Husky grains and biscuity malts appeared on the front end. Touch of sulfur. Some lemony tartness appeared in the center. The finish was punchy and quite hoppy for the style. Earthy, noble hops contributed a significant amount of bitterness.

Decent mouthfeel for the style. Medium bodied with a crisp, fine and sprightly effervescence. The liquid was quite soft and pillowy.

This is perhaps the most commonly found session beer at better beer bars in the Boston-area, and there is good reason for that. Though rather simple in nature, Beer Of The Gods is immensely quaffable and would make for a terrific summer quencher.

German Pilsner..

Pale straw gold with a slight haze, otherwise pretty nice clarity. Initial head of foam was a finger or two, billowing up and settling after a god while. Lots of delicate spindly lace in the glass.

Soft aromas of crackery pale malt and grassy earthy noble hops, vague lemon pith. Flavor is crisp and lightly bitter, earthy hop flavors and mild lemon pith again lending bitterness and citrus essence. Light bodied with ample carbonation, highly drinkable. Pairs well with many types of food and social situations. Simplicity is vastly underrated these days.

On tap, beer is yellow and clear with a nice white head, some lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is a little hoppy and sweet, really nice aroma.

Beer is wet and sweet with a medium to light in body. Beer is mildly bitter, nice yeast and a great finish. I'd have this beer again, a little shocked but I do love a good blonde...

Poured into a glass mug. Pours hazy, straw colored with a two-finger length white head that dissipates slowly. I notice plentiful streaming bubbles in the beer. I can pick up aromas of sweet and bready malts as well as citrus hops. The flavors up front are hoppy. I pick up those citrus hops with some slightly bitter orange or grapefruit peel in the back end along with some herbal hop flavors. The malt adds a nice grainy backbone that isn't very heavy. If you told me this was a pale ale, I wouldn't have doubted it. The body is light to medium with strong carbonation. The finish is mostly clean and crisp. The drinkability is high. This is a very good beer.

From 08/17/12 notes. Had this on tap at a bar right outside Boston, MA. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy yellow color with one inch of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of wheat, spice, grains, and bready malts. Not bad but kind of bland; pretty average.

t - Tastes of wheat, bready malts, grains, light yeast and spice. Again, a bit bland and average.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. A tiny bit undercarbonated.

o - Overall a pretty average blonde ale. Lots of bread and grains to it, and not much else. Would pass on this one again.

A - pours straw yellow with a creamy head

S - citrusy aroma with a bit of cereal / grain malts

T - citrusy up front that moves to a bit of grainy malt. Ends a little bitter. Not uber complex...

M - good body with decent carbonation

D - decent golden ale. Light and refreshing...not too much going on but worth a shot.
