4.58/5  rDev +21.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12 oz bottle served in a nonic pint glass

A: Light yellow with a touch of gold. Scant white head which dissipates quickly leaving a slight ring around the edges. No lacing.

S: Noble hops on top of a rich but light very slightly sweet malt tone.

T: A perfect balance between the crisp noble hop bittering and a slightly grainy, slightly sweet malt tone. Fades off the palate leaving a mild pleasantly lingering bitterness.

M: Medium to light body, appropriate for the style. Finishes malty but dry.

D: Highly drinkable. Very flavorful but not heavy or cloying.

A nice change from citrusy hop bombs. The overall presentation is malt-focused with the right amount of balancing bitterness. An easy drinker. The hop nose is unmistakeably Hallertauer of some type.

4.23/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pilsner glass at 42 degrees

Appearance: A 1 finger frothy foamy off white head with good retention...the clarity of the beer is cloudy with some yeast and effervescent particles floating within the beer. The color of the beer is a pale yellow. Overall appearance of the beer is very good.

Nose: There is a pils hop aroma that is slightly spicy and floral. The malt is very lightly toasted and a slight yeast aroma. Some underlying aromas do exist but they are too hard for me to detect.

Taste: The hops are the dominate flavor in this beer. The aroma is spicy, perfumy, floral flavor that is clean. The malt in this beer takes a backseat to the hop profile in the beer. The malt is very lightly toasted and with a very mild flavor. The yeast is noticeable but still backseat to the beautiful hop flavor.

Mouth feel: It is carbonated, slightly spicy, and coating.

Overall: The body of the beer is light and the finish is light and crisp. I have never really been a huge fan of Bayern beers however this one is an exception! The flavors is something perfect for a hot summer day and a very good beer overall. Next time I wouldn't mind taking a ride in the Tonka truck

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with a touch of haze. Head is a thick finger of creamy, frothy white foam which leaves a nice lace on the glass. Nice.

Smell: light, sweet malty aroma with a hint of grain and a light floral component. Somewhat mild, and yet I like it a lot.

Taste: malty flavor with some pear and apple fruitiness, which I love in a beer like this. It reminds me of a light tripel in a lot of ways, which is good. Hops are floral and combine well here; bitterness is low but present. Quite good!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a very well-integrated carbonation which yields a big and fulfilling creaminess. I can dig it!

Overall: I really like this beer. I have a tendency to be partial to maibocks, but I feel like I could drink this all day.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a light gold color with a half-inch of white head that decent retention and traces of lacing.

The aroma was nice grains, with gentle hopping and a touch of sweetness. The flavors were pretty much the same. The body was far lighter and crisper than I was expecting. Drinkability was excellent. I had this beer at at bar in Seattle, and now I'm hoping we can get these brews up here in the Fourth Corner.

Serving type: on-tap
