Aroma: Hint of cascade and nugget, but not over pronounced. Hint of Munich behind that.
Tastes: Like it looks. Cascade and Nugget, but just a hint. Identifiable, but not pronounced. Not bitter, just hop flavor over a hint of malt.
Looks, Golden and clean. You can almost read through it.
What are my thoughts. It's pitched as a session beer. It won best of 2013 World Beer Awards and 2013 Best Brussels Beer Challenge. So is it good? Well a bunch of judges said yes!
And it's a blonde session beer. It's a finely tuned delicate almost nothing.
Sure it's easy to drink, because it's a blonde. Not much of this, not much of that. Can't complain about a hint of cascade over hint of malt.
For it's style. Fine. But there are so many better beers out there because they have more of everything.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
