Thanks to @TongoRad for this one. Poured into shaker pint glass. Poured a nice caramel-y yellow color, with an inch of white head that had good retention and light lacing.

The aroma was on the sweet side of the malt scale, with some earthy hops in the background. On the tongue, the beer was pretty similar, lightly sweet malts dominated, with a bit of an earthy hop tang towards the back of the palate.

The body was smooth, even and full, but with no heaviness. Drinkability was good, as is typical for the style.Overall, a very nice take on the style, one worth tryingshould you get the chance.

On draft, pours a very clear light orange copper. Fizzy head coats the top and lingers.

Nose is a lot of wheat, earthy, malt and grain with a caramel backbone. The flavor is mild hops, grains, straw, bread dough. Moderately sweet with a clean dry finish. This is balanced and refreshing.

Pretty good interpretation. I like it.
