Big Grove Brewery Iowa City Lager

What the brewers say

“This lager is light, dry, and very drinkable with an herbal-hop and honey aroma.”

What our panel thought

“Water-cracker and gentle Noble-hop aromatics; not a lot of malt character. Perfumey, balanced American interpretation of German pilsner. Balanced and clean. Just not at the intensity we’d look for in this style.”

What our editors thought

“A brief search for the nose turns up a hint of linen and not much else. The sip offers a bit more, with light lemongrass despite the slightly watery finish.”
