A quirky but moorish beer with a hazy yet inviting appearance and a decent thickish head. The initial taste has an intriguing balance of peppery and citrusy hops alongside rye bread. The hop bitterness comes through well, but there is a background finish that alludes to herbs.

From XXXII. In Teku glass. Reviewing CHTP10. Too much fruits here for my liking. Like a multifruits juice. Avg 2.

2 March 2017. In Teku glass. Playing Tehnobabylon. Much better than I remembered.This isnt the disgusting multifruits juice of the first time but a pleasant fruity hoppy brew. Dont seem a lager at all but an ipa.

Although I really enjoyed the Dogfish brew, this one has its own merits. Malty, as is the norm for the style, without being overly grainy or sweet. Nice body without the chalky dryness of the usual Italian hard water.

Bottled
Slightly hazy yellow body with big foamy white head
Sawdust and slight muted citrus aroma
Quite an unusual flavour very woody then pine
more an oddfish than a dogfish
really worth a try tho

pours golden to dull mango yellow with thick white micro head, light on-lasting lacing. fairly cloudy but not too thick or over abundant with sediment/lees, although some clumping towards the end of the pour.

rich nose, slight but noticeable appearance of increased ABV. herbal and floral notes with leafy hop tones on the top. sweet overtones with sweet yeasty quality lingering a little long for my taste, especially for a pils...clingy I guess, but not lasting...thick maybe.

sweet malty undercurrents with a light floral heavy leafy hops on top. pushy pils yeast.
bready depth up front with sharpish leafy hops to the end; with medicinal quality.

long clingy dry finish. leafy and

medium body. long dry finis.

nice over all but big, thick and clingy for a pils, imperil or not.
well balanced and rounded but lacks a crispness and cleanness I would prefer from a pils(comparative clean).

worth it for a late season lighter colourd beer for those in company who are not of the abby persuasion

Pours hazy orange, like a wheat beer. Sweet aroma; fruit, grass, hops...
Great hop flavor all the way through. Surprisingly not bitter.

Excellent beer; really enjoyed this one!
