4/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A-Golden pils yellow with a medium bright white head leaving behind webbed lace.

S-Lightly grainy, bready with a dash of pepper noble-like hops. All in all rather innocuous.

T-Nice bready malts support a surprising snappy hop bitterness. The bitterness reminded me of the bitter flavour one gets from an orange rind. Very nice.

M-Medium-light body with a nice lingering crispness and bitterness.

D-Certainly way more flavour than I was expecting. A pleasant "light", low ABV, summertime offering. Well done brewer Tim!

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Elk Creek on 6/7/08.

A - Hazy light orange body with one-and-a-half finger of frothy white head that eventually diminished and left some adequate lacing.

S - Fruity aroma with notes of crisp apple, lemon zest and pear.

T - Like the aroma, there's plenty of crisp, sweet fruit reminiscent of apple, pear and a touch of lemon bitterness. Malt is primarily light and biscuity. Fresh and tasty!

M - Medium body with mild effervescence. Light, crisp and refreshing with a semi-dry, sweet finish.

D - Perfect summer beer that's exceptionally crisp and refreshing. Very nice new seasonal offering from Elk Creek.

A growler filled on Saturday, May 30 at the brewpub. We stopped by around 2:30 and they were gracious enough to fill the growler even though they didn't open until 4PM.

A: The ale is darker than I expected, having a pale amber color. And by pale, I mean significantly watered down to the point that it looks like apple juice.

S: The ale has the crisp hop aroma of a good pilsner, earthy with a dirty herbal element. Pale malts add a graininess that is paired nicely with the hops.

T: The taste is highlighted by the hops, grassy with a dirty herbal flavor. The bitterness is subtle, slowly taking its time with the tastebuds. The hops are flavorful but do not dominate the taste. They are paired with clean pale malts that have a cereal finish. The herbal hops define the finish.

M: The mouthfeel never lets up on the crisp hops, giving them ample time throughout to show off.

D: The ale is refreshing with a decent alcohol level that rarely shows itself. When it does, the malts and hops bail you out. I'm glad I chose to get a growler of this.
