Full Sail's 26th anniversary brew is a Northwest take on a European classic. It pours a beautiful bright-gold color, with a chunky white head that boasts excellent retention and leaves serious lacing behind with each sip. The hop-derived aromas of citrus and pine are forward and intense, with supporting notes of pale malt and cereal grain. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied but full of flavor, with high carbonation and a harmonious balance between the crisp lager core and the sticky hop characteristics. Herbal tones of meadow, yellow flower and soft pepper grace the finish.
