From the beer cave at Kroger 401, Brambleton Ave. and Colonial Ave. Roanoke, VA. I think this was the last holdover from summer 2013. Best by 03 2014.
Pours a clear straw yellow with a slightly off white head of 4 fingers (from a hard pour) that recedes quickly with initial thick, clingy lacing. Numerous carbonation bubbles of various sizes, very fine, medium and huge.
Fresh and bready with some light herbals or spice from the hops. An impression of warm milk. A bit of nutty malt.
The first glass was very bitter at first, but it becomes much more palatable as the taste buds numb up. Light sweet malt with a bit of tart citrus from the hops and a bitter follow through. Taste is almost vinuous, approaching that of a dry white wine.
Mouthfeel is surprisingly medium thick, almost viscous. Carbonation is very evident. Rather drying. Descent burn.
Much more impressive by the second glass. At first I was afraid it was too old, but this beer grew on me. Might have been even better in the summer.

Good Lighter Summer Beer, like the Kolsch style,
did not realize it was a distinct, German Style
Went well with Brunch, had the Sausage Gravy over Yummy Biscuits
Liked the Pear, Fruit Like Crispness

Poured from a can into a chilled mug. Pour was a clear golden color with a small head that didn't last long. Delicate but slightly fizzy mouthfeel. More flavorful than I expected with a slightly bitter finish. Hints of citrus throughout. The bitterness wasn't a hoppy bitterness. Overall a nice refreshing, very drinkable beer
