On tap at Epcot

Pours a dull golden color with a creamy white head that reduces to a ring. Smells of toasted bread, straw, faint grassy and floral hop, crackers. Tastes of toasted brown bread, sweet malts, grassy hops, clean toasted cracker finish. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and finish.

Draft poured into plastic cup at Epcot- golden color slightly hazy with modest head. Modest carbonation, slight head. Light malts to nose along with easy aroma of hops. Slightly bitter on front of palate with balanced Hoppiness. Enjoyable- Prost!!

Light gold in color with a quarter inch of off white resting on top. Heavy lacing is present. The aroma is light malt and Hallertau hops. I taste what I detected in the nose: light malt and those delicate Geeman hops are present in the fade. The mouth is very light, quaffable, and dry.

Purchased as a close out at the LCBO for $3.85 for a 500ml flip top bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a small head that is gone pretty fast. Medium gold with a iridescent quality.

S- Good hops here.

T- Mellow. Very mellow and light. Hops and malt are there in good proportions. Touch of sourness to it but not unmanageable.

M- Interestingly light for the style. Not dry but it is crisp.

O- Nice to get this rarity to try once. No idea where they pulled it out of but was happy I got it. If I saw it again I would not buy it as there are many other beers out there that are better but this is a good brew.

Food Pairing

This pretty good brew went well with..... Grilled cheese sandwiches with onion

Enjoy
