I have been looking forward to having a Sixpoint beer again and thanks to my sister and the spirit of Christmas, I was able to purchase some. So I got the Winter Warmer, the Double IPA, Resin and the one that I was most looking forward to (which I bought 2 of), The Crisp. A lager. Now I know that lager isn’t cool. It’s got to be hopped up or imperialized before the beer snobs will deign to drink it but this is a damn good beer period.
The Crisp pours a solid yellow. Nice floral aroma. The first taste has a real zing to it. That herbs and flowers taste really sticks with it. I will be sure to make this beer colder the next time because I think that will add a layer that will really round it out. But as is, with hot L.A. January weather warming it up, this was a flavorful beer. I would only add a little more carbonation to make it a little less viscous but that is a minor quibble.
