This beer is steeped in folklore, from the symbolic fish-and-ring label to its cult status around the world. Make no doubt; this beer lives up to its reputation. It pours pale orange with a big, pillowy white head. The tantalizing aroma sings to the nose with candy-sweet overtones and slightly tart notes. Its flavor is pure refreshment with bready, honey-lemon sweetness up front that invigorates the palate and clears the way for the beer’s slightly sour finish. Hops are clearly understated, but lend soft lemon and cracked pepper flavors and low bitterness. With its light body, effervescent carbonation, and clean, dry finish, each swallow is a whole and wonderful experience.
