Alvarado Street Brewery Palio
What the brewers say
"Fresh noble-hops aroma: floral, tea-like, a little spicy, and quite elegant."
What our panel thought
"Subtle, yet complex hops-forward aromas are floral, lemony, and lightly piney with delicate hints of lemongrass. A well-balanced combination of clean malty sweetness and citrus, pine, and slightly earthy hops. Simple yet delicately complex, well-crafted, easy-drinking, and refreshing."
What our editors thought
"A light fruity hops note on the nose is the entrée to this Pilsner that's soft without being Czech soft, with some fruitiness in the flavor that eschews a purely German approach. Imminently drinkable."
