4.25/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Moderate to clear pale golden color with a decent amount of foamy white colored head.

S - Herbs and spices up front with a nice malt aroma all around. Quite pleasant for a pilsner.

T - Light amount of grain and spices flavors. It's a lot more complex than the pilsners I am used to. Bits of citrus and toasted herbs present in the flavor as well.

M - Medium bodied. Average to low carbonation that brings out the flavors a little more.

O - A fantastic drinkable lager. Unique flavors that go down smoothly.

Serving type: growler

On tap at the brewery. I expected a lot. It let me down.

Hazy milk pale. Smells like a lager. Tastes like a lager. It's an over sweet corn syrupy lager substitute.

T: this is a horrible corn lager akin to BMC and worthy of their scorn. No good.

M: Sickly sweet and thin. Ugh.

O: the only Russian River beer I've ever hated. This is absolutely no good. Zero points.

Serving type: on-tap

Big thanks goes out to mikesgroove for sharing this one with me! Served from growler into a Victory 'Taste the Victory' shaker. Poured a pale golden yellow with a minimal white head. There was no lacing evident throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, and subtle spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, grain, and subtle spices. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. Nothing on this brew really stood out to me. You could tell what style they were going for and they hit it pretty well, but everything was just a little too muted for my liking. I could see drinking this while sitting out by a pool all day, but if given it the option, it would not be my first choice if other options were available. Glad I got to try something different from the usual Russian River lineup but doubt I would have this one again.

Serving type: growler
