Another showcase hopped Bachelor, it being my first I had nothing to compare it to but it was excellent! Beautiful color, enticing lacing, tangerine peel, pithy citrus skin, toasted bread, well worth seeking out if they brew it again.

On tap at the brewery tasting room. Greenish yellow with white foam. Not much prickly carbonation but a nice smooth mouthfeel. Some pale malt makes for a substantial body. Hugely fragrant with magnolia blossoms and something fruity.

This Hallertau Blanc hop is so interesting but it has such an insistent flavor. Pineapple with a Mountain Dew finish, and then the bitterness nails on the coffin lid. Very educational but barely drinkable. Maybe in a smaller dose this would make an ideal less bitter Plsener style.
