look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Single bottle poured into a pilsner glass at a nice restaurant. Never saw the date on the bottle as it was poured by the waiter before I got a chance to do it.
Appearance: Golden yellow color, plenty of carbonation coming up in the glass but very little if any foam or lacing. Nothing special. Classic beer image but without the foam.
Smell: Some of that classic lagery malt, just a hint of hops in there, but faint.
Taste: Starts of malty, with just enough hops to balance it out. Nothing special, but well balanced. It did what I was hoping it would in a restaurant with a weak beer selection; cleanse the palate between bites and accentuate the strongly flavored meal (roast duck in this case) as something refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Mild amount of carbonation on the tongue and just thick enough to go down easily and clear the palate in between bites of the meal.
Drinkability: I have to rate this above average. Very sessionable and enjoyable just enough to have another one when nothing else is available. I feel like I had to settle for this beer, but, it does go very well with food. Sure, there may be better, but this one works in a pinch.
