A meringue-like head of tightly packed, pure white bubbles rushes up the sides of my pilsener glass on the pour. Head recedes very slowly and sticks well. Beer is canary yellow in color with shimmering highlights and exceptional clarity. Full aroma of lemony hops even at fridge temperature; a little warmth brings out a compact, leafy bouquet of lemon rind and wet grass clippings balanced by a slight puffed rice maltiness; finishes with some uric salinity. Lemon and hay flavors fill out the midpalate, with a strong bitterness--but not strong enough to overwhelm hints of starfruit and corn silk. Extremely persistent aftertaste suggests quinine and citric rind. Mouthfeel is light, wet, and very firm. I would rather have this as an apertif than drink it in session. The flavors here have clear affinities with parmesan cheese... ooh, now I'm starting to get some ideas...

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.
Serving type: on-tap
