On tap at the brewpub, and also poured at home from a growler.

Appearance: Clear, yellowy gold with just a hint of green. Authentic to a German style, but too light in colour for an authentic Czech pilsner. On tap, not a lot of head or lace; poured from the growler, good head and some nice lace.

Aroma: Grassy, lemony, inviting.

Taste: An abundance of delectable Saaz hops with pronounced grassy flavour. Some lemon and a touch of herb. Rich sugary but appropriate sweetness for the style, and a noble hop soft bitterness that lasts. Very tasty, but just a bit too much sweetness to be as sessionable as it otherwise would be. Nevertheless, easy to have a few and enjoy them.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, moreish. Very good.

Drinkability: This is to date the best seasonal that Big Ridge have brewed in recent years. It sounds like I've been picking holes wherever I can in this review, but this is honestly a very good beer. Well worth having. Their next seasonal effort is an Oktoberfest; this really whets my appetite for that.

Keep up the good work.
