Beer added by: armock on 10-25-2008

A rich, creamy golden colored ale fermented at a cool temperature to give a clean finish. Hints of yeasty bread and a touch of hops combine to make a beer that is truly more than the sum of its parts.

Poured into snifter.

A- Pours a hazy copper to yellow with a small frothy head that recedes quickly. No lacing.

S- Good wheat and bread and a slight overall sweetness. Little to no hop aroma.

T- Slightly astringent, with a lot of wheat/bread and a small amount of spicy hops.

M- Very dry but not thin.

D- It is a good beer for a hot day, there is little complexity. I really liked the small amount of hop spice, I just really wish there was a lot more.

A: Copper, slightly cloudy

S: Like biscuit, with a little fruit, some hop... nice...

T: A little tart, blander than I expected but still nice. The smell actually over sells it. Still a good beer.

M: Perfect

D: I could kill a case of cans on the river.

had high hopes for this as the brewery is right up the road. poured first can in perfect pint and the head quickly disapated w/no lacing. second bad sign was non-existant smell. i tried a second and wondered if the 6'er i bought at specs was tainted. ended up drain pouring the last 1/3 which is not my style.

i have 4 left and will pawn them off on neighbors to see if somethings amiss.

not bad at all. I could easily kill a six pack of these on a hot afternoon. Very light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side, but other than that I would never complain about being handed one of these.

These are just over $5 for a 6er at my local specs. My uncle who swears by coors light drank a can and said it was good. That says something for a man who's never had anything other than coors his whole life.

Yet another quality beer from Southern Star. Pours golden with a 1/2 inch pillow of white head that fades rather quickly to a thin layer. Smell is of sweet maltiness and a hint of hops but just a hint. The taste is just like the smell, sweet and citrusy and balanced extremely well. The carbonation is perfect giving this beer a creamy texture. Truly a great session beer.
