look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a hazy honey color capped by a minuscule head that fades quickly leaving no lace

Smell: Bready and grassy

Taste: Bready malt with a very grassy and bitter hop kick that dominates the mid-palate and the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Not too sure what to make of this beer; it could be a nice quaffer but the grassy bitterness of the hops just isn't sitting right with me; it's like a pilsner without the crispness

I got this beer with high hopes because it came highly recommended.

A-Pours hazy yellow with almost no head. Not a pretty beer by any means.

S-Smells slightly fruity

T- Light citrus with quite a bit of bitterness. Outside of the bitterness there wasn't much. Not bad but certainly not good.

MF-Dry and crisp.

0-Not a huge fan but my reaction may have been partially affected by the high expectations. I think I may come back to it at some point because I suspect the it may have been a bad keg. One of the things my friend noted when he recommended it was a nice carbonation in the beer which I didn't get at all. This beer seems too well thought of for me to have had such a bad experience. Maybe just a bad keg.

So light, so refreshing, crisp, clean, and clear- the beer is less "God" like and more "Goddess" in its tone.

Built upon German underpinnings, its aroma shines with a mostly clear straw color that highlights its lively carbonation. Lightly headed, the beer sheds its foam structures onto the glass with broken rings of lace. Bright white froth towers over a modestly hazy body.

Grainy sweet to start, the beer's ale-lager dichotomy plays out on a bed of lightly kilned barley for an aroma and taste that's largely Pilsner-like. But then its those strong citrusy, grassy, and light piney hops that give away its American hop influences. If not for the hop contributions, the beer could have been sold as a Kolsch-style ale. Light grapefruit and citrus peels speak otherwise and twist into a lightly herbal finish of pine needles and fresh-cut grass.

Crisp and clean from head to toe, the ale plays nicely on the palate as the carbonation pushes the grain sweetness into a snappy and terse finish. Lightly astringent with the bite of hop leaf, the ale is otherwise dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable.

Yea, any beer named "Beer of the Gods" has be be masculine, dominant, and gentlemanly. High & Mighty's version is just to timid even though her finesse and delicate nature is charming.
