1 Pint 6 oz. fancy brown bottle. Freshness date etched on the label.
Served in a SA Perfect Pint glass.
Pours a hazy amber honey color with a 1" off-white head along with some patchy trailing lace.
A smell grassy malt smell carries mild lemony citrus and some herbal aromas. A late smell of boiled grain inches forward but remains in the distant background.
The malt is a bit sugary sweet. It's tempered somewhat by citrus notes and a slight metallic tang. The herbal taste rolls in as it warms.
A spritzy effervescence fades quickly, so if you enjoy a little bubbly to your beer, act quickly.
I swear, this reminds me A LOT, of the old Miller Highlife of the 70's, sans the cooked corn taste.
I hope this isn't the replacement for SA's Nobel Pils. That would be sad...
