(on tap at Victoria Freehouse - served in a 20 oz proper pint)
A: pale gold color, nearly perfectly clear... open-structured white foam on the pour, quietly settles out to barely an outer ring, little lacing...
S: not much to excite... flowery notes, final mash runnings... water from an old, rusted (iron) faucet... perhaps a touch of dinner roll crust... maybe it's the glass, but I can hardly smell a thing
T: foundation of mild, fresh pale malt flavors - I wouldn't be able to suggest any complexity to the malt flavors other than to say it tastes like dried-out pils malt - no "bready" or "biscuity" or other qualities of the like... perhaps a slight earthy hop presence... mild mineral and hop bitterness to balance... doesn't taste watery or watered-down, doesn't have any discernible fruity character - but the overall intensity of flavor, even as it warms, is very mild
M: around light-medium bodied - on the lighter end between thin and medium, slight roundness... crisp, clean, without any fizzy bite or malty roll
O: had this last about 5 years ago in the UK - that was the "velvet" lager (nitro?) draft offering... this isn't all that bad, it's serviceable - thankfully has some malt flavor, to provide a modicum of interest
Serving type: on-tap
