On cask at flying saucer Houston. Served in a pint glass

Appearance: Reddish amber, about a finger of head and a reasonable amount of lace as beer is consumed.

Smell: Typical hops, grapefruit, pine/resin, flowery and a little bit of all spice.

Taste: Almost a herbal tea like flavor up front, then grapefruit and pine, aftertaste is all hops. Not too bitter, very drinkable

Mouthfeel: Quite light, very smooth and very very easy to drink.

Overall: Not bad at all, a good intro to fresh hopped beers, not earth shattering but worth drinking again for sure.

On tap at Gordon Street Tavern in Alvin.

Let me start by saying, if this could be a year round regular beer from Karbach, it would immediately be my go to fridge beer.. it is awesome.

Super easy to drink... plenty of hops, but not overbearing for a guy like me who likes hops but doesn't love hop bitterness all over the finish.

Such a great beer... smell is super fresh mowed grass to my nose... a good friend said it smelled like another fresh type of grass.. not my thing... so I don't know..

Man.. I'm going to find this somewhere for a growler fill or two... love it.

On cask at Hay Merchant in Houston. I am adding this as an English IPA. Nugget and Kent hops, and really reminds me of the English IPA's I am familiar with. I could be dead wrong though.

A: Pours almost a perfectly clear orange/red color. A two finger white head forms with good retention and lace.
S: Hops up front. Spicy, floral, herbal, tea like. That I really enjoy. A good balance of caramel malt.
T: Hops up front again. Spicy and herbal hops flavors. Some bitterness. Caramel malt, light sweetness, wood. Lingering bitterness. Very nice and balanced.
M/D: A near perfect body for cask. Well carbonated, smooth, velvety, with a lingering dryness. So easy to drink. All day with this one.

Another great offering from Karback. I love the cask, I close my eyes and I am in the UK. Something I really recommend.

Light beer. Not typical of most pale ales. Very pleasant citrus note at the end. Not a clean finish but still refreshing...
