Clear gold with small white head that disappears quickly to a thin rim and slight lacing.

Aroma: mild malt, fleeting hint of cloves, and some citrus

Taste: Pils malt with some grassy hops. Slight tartness with minimal spicy cloves.

Light body with medium carbonation. Mild ethanol warmth.

Overall a mild farmhouse ale with not enough of the funky barnyard spice for me. Good enough beer but doesn't bring enough for the style.

A recommendation from a cousin as being one of his favorite beers, so I figured I'd give it a go.
L - rocky white head atop a slightly hazed golden ale, good head retention and lacing
S/T - funky yeast, grass, biscuit, lemon, earth, pepper, spicy noble hops
F - refreshing, thin-to-medium body, finishes dry and fairly clean with modest bitterness; I always seem to find Shiner beers to be a bit chalky and this one is as well
O - fairly decent farmhouse ale, not sure I'd get it again, but I'm always up for trying something new. If my cousin showed up with some to share, I'd definitely drink to that.
