It’s just a lazy Saturday, and I’m digging into some of the beers that I picked up during my vacation to Florida last week. I already had my last Cigar City Jai Alai. When I found this one at the grocery store in Flordia, I wasn’t exactly sure how great it was going to be, but I thought I’d give it a shot. Besides, what’s better in hot weather than a nice clean lager, right?
Location: Poured into a curved pint glass from the bottle at my home in Bloomington, IL.
Numbers: 5.1% ABV, 22 IBUs, 5.8 SRM, 153 Calories
Ingredients: Malt: 2-row, Caramel, Carapils; Hops: Northern Brewer, German Tradition.
Appearance & Aroma: It’s orange in color and slightly hazy. When I poured it into the glass it had very little head, and it retained almost nothing but a very little ring of bubbles around the outside of the glass. The beer did appear, however, to have a decent amount of carbonation in it. The aroma was a bit like bread and crackers with a little bit of a fruity malt smell.
Taste & Feel: The body is pretty light and the mouthfeel is fairly crisp. The carbonation sharpness made it…
