What's this? A Great Divide exclusive to Pasquini's pizza? Very interesting.
Appearance: Served in a shaker pint. Clear yellow with very little head.
Smell: Some confused malt smells, no hops in the aroma.
Taste: Blone ale seems about right. There's a grainy maltiness plus maybe a corn sweetness. It's a little fruity, so I would guess an ale.
Mouthfeel: Very clean and light bodied.
Drinkability: Inoffensive and light.
So it's a blonde ale or maybe a cream ale. It's a little dissapointing next to Great Divide's other great beers, but it's also a dollar cheaper than any of the other beers on tap. Looks like they were trying to make an cheap, accessable lawnmower beer and succeeded.
Serving type: on-tap

This is a unique beer that's only on tap at Pasquini's pizza locations in the Denver area.
Brewed by Great Divide, I can only assume it's a little bit like their take on a Euro pils, although I'm about 90% sure it's an ale based upon the flavor profile. I have it listed as a blonde ale, but it could also be a filtered wheat beer or even a hybrid beer like Samurai - which is it's closest cousin in terms of flavor.
Arrives a golden color that's a hint lighter than a pils with a nice fluffy head on the top.
The nose reveals this as an ale with fruity notes (mild green apple, pear) and a crackery malt hit.
The crispness of the malt reminds me a bit of Samurai. It's a little biscuity, but not one-dimensional. Mild fruit notes come in the middle, and the finish is clean with a cracker-like dryness.
This is easy drinking and a nice pair with pizza or anything with robust meat/tomato flavors.
Drinkability is actually a strength. The clean finish, non-heavy body, but solid flavor profile make this an easy beer to have 2-3 of.
The easiest comparison to make is that this is like a Samurai with darker malts and filtering. It's oversimplified, but I haven't been able to find out much else about it.
It's good, that simple. If you're at Pasquini's, give it a shot.
