Downtown SD at the Neighborhood on a warm evening, thought this sounded refreshing. Poured into a pint glass, the beer reveals an pale straw-yellow and forms a unusually frothy head that leaves sticky lacing all over. Subtle grassy scents and citrus are packaged in a bready bouquet. The palate is slightly malt-forward and crackery, quickly dried by hop essence. There are few nuanced flavors, and the light and bubbly mouthfeel doesn't help matters. Short, dry finish...this brew highlights the boring side of Reinheitsgebot.

Appearance: Pale, golden, effervescent

Aroma: Floral, citrus

Taste: Hoppy, slightly bitter

Remarks: This was one of my first reviews, so there wasn't much to go on.

I didn't like it enough to put a bumper sticker on my car, unless it said "Bitte, kein Bit"

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Light golden color, clear. Lots of small carbonation rising up. Small frothy head.

Biscuit malts, herbal hops, very crisp.

Very rich, biscuity, pale malts, a little honey. Hop bitterness is medium, mainly spicy-herbal, just a little lemony. Finish is dry-bitter, yet very crisp. Body is light, very crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, good amount of fizzy carbonation.

Outstanding beer.
