On tap at King's Table

Hazy honey/amber color. Lasting layer of retention and great lace.

Orange, grapefruit and grassy hops hold most of the aroma aside from some toasty grain. Yeah, mostly hops though. In another example of WTF, the taste is vegetal all while suggesting the taste of perfume fragrances if one could taste the fragrence and not the purfume itself. Soft body and carbonation.

Overall: Gorgeous lace. Terrible beer.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a standard pint, this is a medium amber colored beer with a modest head. The nose offers plenty of hops, as expected, but also a nice clean malt aroma. The flavor mirrors this, with a great balance of toasty malt and sharp, bitter hoppiness. Very drinkable hoppy malty lager, like a hoppy octoberfest!

Purchased this at BEVMO in a 22oz bomber and am anxious to try it. Poured a straw gold with a decent head. The aroma is a combo of resinous hops and sweet malt. The taste is a replica of the nose, but the flavors are a bit more intense than the aroma would suggest--the piney hops flavor was most prominent. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a good malt character to the brew. The finish, as typical with lagers, was very clean. Overall, it was a flavorful, well-balanced brew. I wish I could find a six-pack!
