Picked this up for 2 bucks at the Gateway grill. Figured it would go well with a Primanti sandwich.
A - Ah I can hear the fizz like soda pop, yet it does make for a 1/2 inch plus head that doesn't fizz out too quick. Color is a bright golden clear yellow.
S - Corn and lager yeast is the highlight in this one mild sunk, dry lemon like with no delectable hops.
T - Much drier than I expected with muted corn notes and some mild herbal hops which may be lager yeast I can't tell. Pretty bad stuff.
M - Light to medium leaning more towards medium it's not as carbonated as I expected and comes off heavier than it should be.
Overall not sure how old it is or why I even got it, all I know is these guys make a pretty decent Witbier yet not a good, clean, crisp tasting lager. Pass if you can.

DATE REVIEWED: June 21, 2014... GLASSWARE: Blanche de Chambly pokal... OCCASION: Willow Lake orientation day...APPEARANCE: cascading bubbles round out a clear golden body; thick white head--exhibits excellent white cloudy lacing... AROMA: fragrant Saaz with soft lemongrass and some wheat yeasts--fresh and energizing (and unexpected)... PALATE: soft, almost creamy champagne-like (unavoidable comparison?) and smooth; light, clean, dry aftertaste... TASTE: a bit maltier than anticipated; refreshing with some fruitiness and honey accents... OVERALLL: a surprisingly strong profile for a beer--a French beer, at that--I had long forgotten since our trip abroad in '03..this beer poured fresh, presented well, cleansed the palate as a pilsner is apt to do, and offered just enough flavor to elicit a satisfied night....
