  • Pours clear with a half inch of pure white, thin foam. Retention is average. Lacing is somewhat thick and sticky.

    Aroma is more malt forward than expected but that is fine. Caramel and biscuit malt with a bit of fruity and citrus hops on the back end.

    Taste follows quite a bit. Caramel and biscuit malts are strong up front through the middle, lingering into the finish. Hops add quite a bit of bitterness in the finish that has some staying power.

    Light body with light carbonation. Dries the palate slowly.

    An easy drinking beer that could be even easier if the pronounced bitterness didn't interrupt the rest of the beer so much. A quality offering that is just a touch off of being awesome. Enjoy!

    Look: Transparent light gold, with tight bubbles. Thin lace on side of glass.
    Taste: Sweet hops, like I thought. Lightly hopped. Some fruityness with a dash of bitter. Very clean and drinkable.

Beer Notes
  • his crisp ale has citrus and grapefruit bouquet derived from a blend of three hops, including Cascade. It finishes with a solid pleasing medium bitterness. Ounce for ounce most popular year-round beer in house.
