Alvarado Street Brewery Palio

What the brewers say

“An Italian- style pilsner; floral, tea-like, a little spicy and elegant, zippy bitterness, and crisp finish.”

What our panel thought

“Light citrus pith collides with sauvignon blanc in the aroma; woody, herbal, spicy, followed by straight malt. Floral orange comes to the front of the flavor; clean, crisp, with medium bitterness to carry it. Unique varietals come through in the flavor; unique, complex, while still dry and drinkable.”

What our editors thought

“Herbal tea nose; a slight sweet note softens the impact. The sip is equal parts bold and demure, in perfect tension, underplaying the strong spicy herbal note.”
