Profiled by Maria Devan
This beer has almost no nose. The malt is but a sweetness in the breath of it.
It catches the light aflame because of it’s haze. The crown is white. Only a shy depth from the grain will come to the nose. Taste is bread-y, a slight bitterness and only a whisper of herbal from hops. Very dry. You can barely perceive a fruity lightness from the grain because the malt is crisp and dramatic.
In the finish it gives a slight pucker.
Welcome to the PGA beer rating system: one beer “Don’t bother.” Two: Eh, if someone gives it to you, drink. Three: very good, go ahead and seek it out, but be aware there is at least one problem. Four: seek it out. Five: pretty much “perfecto.”
