Had this on tap at the New Belgium restaurant in the Denver airport - nice find I'll have to use again as I'm there from time to time. I'd presume this is pretty fresh since it's New Belgium's own establishment!
A - nice crisp looking beer with a clear golden color, no head and some thin, streaky lacing
S - primarily a slightly sweet malt note on the nose, not much else
T - a sip reveals a small shot of citrus hops that endures for a while; it's sharp and astringent, but not in a bad way, just very crisp. Basically no obvious malt on the finish
M - very light though with some moderately sharp carbonation. Nice clean mouthfeel
D - ultra drinkable - excellent patio beer
Solid Pilsener - nice and crisp, slightly citrusy and likely amazing outside on a patio.
Serving type: on-tap
