On-tap at Herby's. Lime on tow.

A: The lager is very light, a pale yellow color that has just enough golden brown in it. No head, thank I'm guessing, to the lime's citrus.

S: Mild nose, a little bready a little hoppy but very strong on either front. The highlight may just be the spicy citrus that the lime imparts. Fairly boring, but it greases the skids for the queso fundido.

T: Again, the lime delivers a pleasant detour from an otherwise boring lager. The light breads, very pale, are practically nonexistent. And don't even think about hoppiness. The good news is that the lager goes down very easily. This one didn't make it through the birthday apps.

M: Mouthfeel? It's moist with a drip of citrus. About what I expected.

Serving type: on-tap
