On-tap at The Bricks, Ybor City. What a great beer. Perfect looking; replete with flaxen translucent body and a nice cap of white frothy head. It also has a great nose; its sorta grainy and earthy-herbal. Furthering the great theme, it has great taste, specifically for nailing a dry Pils-type beer with rich herbal and mineral notes, and yet is not remotely skunky (and I don't mean light-struck skunkiness, I mean the skunky flavors imparted by certain Continental hops.) I forgot to mention the feel, perhaps because it is merely good and refreshing. I could drink this brew by the boot, yard or party-ball.

A: No persistent head, no lacing, clear rings all the way down. Fitting of a clear lager.

S: Vague malt and metal. As good as any bottled lager I've met, but not a standout by any means.

T: Middling sweet, buckwheat honey front, center, and standing tall. Barest hint of a hop finish, a ghost of a bitter note.

M: Crisp and light, a good beverage beer. Sharp enough to stand against even a heavy pizza.

Overall: A fine full lager, suitable for three or four at a run. Good to pound or to sip. A fine all-around beer.

Poured out of a bottle, gift from Brent at The House of Brews. Thanks Brent! Poured into my tulip.

A – Almost perfect clarity on the pour. See through all the way with an almost light apple cider like color. Crisp white head that stayed around as a small cap.

S – Very light floral and grassy herbal scent with a mild grain mixed in.

T – Like the nose this has a very smooth grainy taste to start out with a light fruit qualities. Has some apple and white grape flavors. Herbal hops and touch of bittering mixes in. Has a bit of a funk to it but finishes with a spicy and sweet mix.

M – Light bodied and extremely crisp on the palate. Tingly and bubbly.

O – Pleasant surprise here. I was not expecting much but this beer has a nice light and crisp taste that is extremely refreshing. You can drink this all day long and would make an ass kicking brew on a hot summer day. Bring it on.

I had it on tap last Saturday at Sharper Edge in Pittsburgh. There were 2 other Belgium Pils on tap Bavik and Primus ,both of which I've had before and found somewhat typical. The standard and favorite for Belgium drinkers is Jupiter though Stella Artois is the one known best in the USA. I find Belgium Pils to have a clean refreshing finish. They are excellent after a long summer day. These are what American beers would like to be, clean honest brew but without the corn and far more elegant. This Estaminet on the other hand is not like any of the others beginning with a somewhat cloudy straw color and a very different aroma and bouquet. I'm not sure how to describe the taste, it's different but in a pleasant way and I had two.The esters are interesting to say the least. It's a nice diversion from the usual Pils and lager without the hops though without looking I'm not sure. I'm happy to have met this beer and wish I could meet the people behind it's creation. I'd ask them for some yeast because frankly this style I've never tasted.I'm going to the Palm site to find out more.

DATE TASTED: November 15, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: just returned from watching LVR's production of All My Sons--legs were broken... APPEARANCE: tawny, straw-golden body--comes across rather faded--with effervescence of various pacing; head is snow white and lacing nicely, like frost on a winter window... AROMA: the punch of Saaz front row and center; bananas and some off-putting wet rag as well...PALATE: soft, light-bodied and swift in its descent; active and bubbly on the tongue, inviting flirtation...TASTE: immediate complex esters arrest the teeth--apple and pear, most notably--while subtle malts work the throat with a woody, pulpish effect; floral, almost perfumy experience, a beer that dances lightly on its feet, yet it finishes with some grainy/rice aftertaste ...OVERALL: as one of the four self-touted "Great Beers of Belgium,," this pilsner has some product potential--over two hundred fifty years of brewing, black and gold foil necktie, a nicely drinkable flow--and delivers with a delicately complex pilsner worthy of a second look...
