Bottle into tall pilsner
A – A clear golden amber brew gave a good sized nearly white head with decent retention and lacing before subsiding to a lumpy pillow 4
S – Much more floral than my memory serves, mild sweetness and grassiness with a bit of toasted malts 4
T – A light toasted grains/malt sweetness with a fading herbal bitterness towards the finish, good balance 3.5
M – Very middle of the road, a light body & wet, a bit flat 3.5
O – When you step into Bob’s Country Bunker and are looking at the full BMC line-up with a Boston Lager trailing on the end… we’ll both select this beer. Very drinkable, but most other craft exceeds this brew. 3.5
