Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #49 (Feb 2011):

Sometimes, the lightest of the bunch will tell the true worth and expertise of a brewery. Three-fingered head crowns the clear, pale yellow-colored ale. Hints of pale malt, taffy fruit and dusty bread in the nose. Soft, cushy smoothness super- sedes the crisp bite with a light creaminess. Smacks of dry, bready malt, which sticks to the palate. Mild exotic fruitiness with a very faint alcoholic ester. Hops flavor it very well and keep the malt in check. "Superb" would be a simple word to use for this beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint. Clear straw/gold body with a fizzy white head. Little retention and no noticeable lacing.

Aroma is grassy and bready. Slight caramel sweetness.

Flavor is bready and crackerlike. Slightly floral. Pretty simple profile.

Light-bodied and with ample champagne-like carbonation. Nice crisp finish.

Overall, this is a simple but pleasant beer. Nothing special, but extraordinarily drinkable. No off-putting flavors whatsoever.

Found out this flag ship beer is brewed in Stevens Point and you can tell the difference between those produced in housed. The beers produced in the brewpub are fantastic. Those in bottle have a huge drop off.

Serving type: on-tap
