Third Coast Beer ~ Bells

Appearance: clear straw with a bright white tight fizzy bubbly head. Swirls with lace and more bubbles along its edge.

Nose: grains and dry finely ground cornmeal. Lemon peel and pith in the back, mostly pith. Wonder bread crusts. Distinctly fresh albeit generic in its white breadness. French rolls.

Palate: bracing bitterness in the back of each swallow from first to last. Soft bready mouthfeel – digging into the soft innards of freshly baked French bread, hold the crust please. Acidic bitterness and wax – lemon peel meets grater. Cut green grass blades.

Final Thoughts: meh. Better than most lawn-mowing macro swill, but still nothing to really write home about, especially when there are finally some GOOD pilsners and lagers available. BUT! For what Third Coast Beer is meant to be (read above) it is quite good.
