Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 04/27/09. 2009 Version.
Pours a bright clear straw-yellow color with a good inch of soft whitish head. The head disappeared rather quickly. Aroma is faint with pils malt, a biscuity character, and floral European hops.
Taste starts with a grainy pils malt and sweet biscuit flavor. Nice spicy and floral European hops provide a pleasant bitterness that lasts throughout. Very crisp and clean finish, which is helped by just the right amount of carbonation. Light bodied enough to make it super-easy to drink. Almost sessionable, just a touch lighter and it'd be great.
Overall, a very good beer - great for a hot summer day.
