Cigar City Gasparilla Music Fest

What the brewers say

“A clean, minerally nose with notes of fresh-cut grass preludes a crisp, refreshing palate with light breadiness from Bohemian Pils malt and a spicy bitterness that’s at once complex and satisfying.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Citrus and slightly tropical-fruit hops aromas. Lemon, peach, orange. Some floral character on retronasal. Clean and subtle Pilsner malt aroma. Then, earthy with subtle underlying rose notes.”

Flavor: “Clean and crisp. There is a nice light cracker-like sweetness up front with some floral hops notes that carry through the taste. The bitterness helps to even out the sweetness, and it is not overly bitter. Refreshing on the finish. Lighter in body and nice carbonation.”

Overall: “Easy-drinking, well-balanced beer. No significantly prominent malt or hops flavors, which works well to make this a sound sessionable drinker.”
