Poured from a 500ml bottle.
Hazy gold in appearance with a frothy white head. The smell reminds me of the aroma of a German or Cvech pilsener with a little less hop spice. The flavor is also similar to a quality pilsener but with a unique twist that is hard to pinpoint. The flavor is malty with a sharp hop bitterness. Soft in character and somewhat floral in hop flavor and a bittersweet finish. The mouthfeel is medium light and a little creamy. Overall this has components of a good beer but something odd about the flavor that I just cant describe. It's worth a try to see for yourself... if you happen to see it sitting on a shelf.

Got this from Eagle Provisions, Brooklyn. Golden amber with a fast-disappearing head. Sulphury, grassy aroma. Quite clean tasting with moderate hop and malt balance, maybe a bit thin. There's an initial underlying sweetness which fades to nothing, leaving a gap with little aftertaste. Average.

The beer pours a hazy dark gold color with a thin white lace head. The aroma is good. It has a light malty scent with the presence of mild aroma hops and yeast. The taste is pretty good. It has all the characteristics of a pale beer, but with a little flavor and body. The mouthfeel is above average. Like most beers from Georgia it has a medium body and less than adequate carbonation. The beer drinks well. It has it's flaws, but overall it's not bad; a pleasant surprise.
