12 oz brown bottle with pry off cap poured in a miscellaneous glass in our rented condo at Turtle Bay, Oaho, Hawaii. Purchased at Foodland on the North Shore.

Clear, pale golden yellow. Bright white head is 1/2 inch on the pour. Sporadic lines of lace here and there.

Aroma of noble hops. Herbal and floral. A little biscuit In the background.

Light grainy sweetness with some herbal hops off the start transforms into a floral/herbal hop bitter finish. Pretty straight forward and un-complex.

Light bodied. A little harsh mouthfeel. Lots of carbonation.

This is ok, but nothing special. Pretty average. Not soft enough in the mouthfeel or crisp enough.

12 ounce bottle -> World Market Flute

This beer pours up a light gold with a small head which has more staying power than the average porn star. Lacing is present. I really don't get much from the nose, maybe some grasses. Taste is mild but decent. It has a smooth lemony giving way to a mild bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is nice with adequate carbonation. Not too shabby. Not world class, but very enjoyable!!!

"this is our most hoppy beer" hahaha. okay. whatever. it isnt hoppy at all, but it tastes pretty good. the pour is clear and golden to yellow, with a gorgeous white head more than three inches high, foamy and lasting. more lacing and retention than usually seen from such a light beer. the nose is crisp as anything. sure to be satisfying in both winters coldest months and summers hottest. there is a lot of light pils malt, but its very fresh and seedy, from the field. the flavor is balanced, with some sort of goldings hops on the back end, but it isnt bitter, just sort of tames the sweetness of otherwise doughy malts. finish is super fast, dryer than it should be, but very very drinkable. the body is light, but not watery, and the carbonation is near spot on. bubbly enough but not laughably upbeat. this is much much much much better than i expected it to be when it was given to me by the head brewer of the syracus facility, who is a legend by the way. overall a nice americanized version of a central european classic. ill drink this again.
