16 oz can into hardywood park tulip. best before sept. 30 12.
A: very rich golden hued body. head is bright white with great retention and thick clumps of lace.
S: slightly sweet, slightly minty aroma. if i had to guess, i would say saaz was used in this brew. a very inviting aroma, even if it is one not typical of american pale lagers.
T: a little eggy. there is an underlying chalky, earthy noble bitterness throughout the entire drink that slightly reminds me of a german pils. the malt is there, but really as a backboard for the hops. smoooth.
M: moderate carbonation on a light/medium body.
D: i really like this beer. good flavor on a very drinkable lager. glad it is in a hogsleg.
Serving type: can
