Clothed in a stange glass.

A: Pretty light gold/straw color. Christina does not have a good head on her shoulders.

S: A sort of a grain/barnyard scent. She's a rural girl and carries with her a bit of the scent of vegetation (not vegetables) and fresh fields.

T: Toasty malt with the same farm/grain/cut plants and a breath of hops at the end.

M: Bubbly as champagne and just as nimble on the tongue. Crisp with a light to medium body.

O: This extended metaphor came out a lot creepier than I'd intended.

In any case, Christina is a good pils with a lot to offer. One you could see yourself settling in with for a while.

Had this beer at the Burlington Hearth. Served on tap in a 12oz glass, cool.

A-off white head and a nice gold body

S-clean malt front and a light hop body.

T-cereal front, light hop ending


D-very nice sessionable beer. I would drink this again.

goldish yellow, slightly cloudy with some soapy white head that leaves minimal lacing.
Light floral and spicy hop aroma, very true to the style. A touch of biscuits is detectable as well

Crisp spicy hop flavor, some grassiness. Very clean tasting. Still some biscuits as well. I have had it fresher and the hops do burst a bit more but still tasty

Very light body but good amount of flavor, slightly watery
Excellent session beer and true to the style.

Pours a mild golden color with a one finger head into the glass.

Aroma is full of sweet, grainy malt with a decent amount of hops.

Taste is dry and full of sweet, grainy malt with just the right hint of hops.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering sweet malt and hop bitterness. Dry just as I like it.

Easy to drink and enjoy. Perfect for a hot day like this after walking 4 miles one way.

Very crisp smell with no hop/malt aroma, slightly skunky on the nose even though it's kegged...
Very clear nice golden color with almost no head or lacing.

It's got quite a skunky taste as well, it's better than Heineken but not by much, one of Zero Gravity's poorer beers.
