On Tap

Lost Abbey
San Marcos, CA

Clear golden yellow with a touch of copper. Medium sized white head with spots of lacing left down the glass.

Not an overly aromatic beer but what's here is nice. There's lots of bready and biscuity malt character along with a grassy hop character.

Bready and biscuity flavor with a bit of grass and hay. There's just a bit of spicy black pepper as well. Simple but tasty and incredible drinkable.

Crisp, light to medium bodied, plenty of carbonation. A joy.

A delicious, simple, clean, refreshing lager.

On-tap @ Blue Palms Brewhouse - served in a pilsner glass.

Very pale gold, quite clear, with a whisper of fine ivory foam that recedes at once to a barely extant ring.

Light almost biscuity malt and vague grassy/herbal (noble?) hops in the nose. Pils malt is very clean and there is none of the expected DMS here.

The flavors follow the nose - somewhat sweet, light malt, and a low spicy bitterness from hops. The finish and aftertaste seem to concentrate and emphasize the flavors - leading you back for another sip which is mildly disappointing in contrast.

Light bodied with average carbonation. A bit insubstantial even for the style.

Refreshing and a good starter/session ale on a hot day; otherwise, nothing special.

A: The pour is a pale golden-yellow with a fluffy white head.

S: Quite light on the aroma. A bit of biscuity and bready malt to provide some sweetness. There is a light spiciness which seems to be in the form of coriander.

T: A bit heavier on the bread and malt qualities to give this beer some actual flavor. The sweetness is mildly contrasted by some spicy hops and a moderate bitterness.

M: Light in body with a crisp, clean carbonation--just like you would expect from a Helles Lager.

D: Certainly easy enough to drink down on the warm Southern California days that are here and that shall continue throughout the summer.
