The One They Call Zoe pours to a golden color and emits a fragrance that is very distinctive, with scents of floral, biscuit malt, and fruity aromas dominating. The scent is very juicy and just begs you to take a sip while the foam, while not incredible, is still good and it does leave some lacing.

This beer has a very interesting flavor profile and is about right in- line with the direction in which the nose leads you. The taste of biscuit- like malts, bread, tropical fruits, and toasted malts are most noticeable, but there are other great flavors as well, like grassy hops and other sensory delights.

The One They Call Zoe is a very interesting, very tasty beer with a complex flavor profile and unexpected level of smoothness. You know this is no ordinary lager the moment you open the can and your nostrils are filled with the complex and very enticing aroma. The enjoyment continues as you take one sip after another, pleasantly surprised at the beer’s incredible smoothness and anxious to open up a second can.

Hops and Grains really overachieved with this beer and I find myself still thinking about it long after my sampling was through. It’s the best Hops and Grain beer I have tried so far and I enthusiastically look forward to trying more.
