Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #36 (Jan 2010):

Extreme pale yellow color with a light haze; crackling white head has good retention. Aromas of shortbread, biscuit dough and a delicate floral hop. Quick on the crispness. A lot of malt flavor crammed into this brew; doughy with fresh-baked crackers and a hint of grassiness. The hops sting the tongue gently with bitterness, and the subtle flavor goes from floral to wild herb. Ghostlike sulfur in the middle. Dry grassy grain and herbal hop finish.

It's impossible to hide potential flaws in lighter beer styles. Thankfully, Mother Earth did not have to worry about this--no flaws. A great example of the style.

This is one of my favorite styles of beers and Mother Earth makes a great one! It helps that they are just down the road from me. Like a good hef, the yeast leaves behind a fruity, tangy taste, although a kolsch isn't near as yeasty. The sweetness is balanced by a nice hop bitterness. Hardly a hoppy beer, but just enough to bite the side of your tounge. I highly recommend this beer! In fact, I'm gonna have one now!

Pours out hazy straw color with a two finger white head that retains and sticks around the glass for the life of the ale.

The aroma is light with doughy slightly sweet malt, honey like. That malt is matched with a bright clean citrus hop.

The taste is light a clean, with out compromising any flavor. Biscuit malt and soft grassy grain. Lemon zest, probably from the perfect use of citrus hops.

Light in body, crisp and clean on the palate, with a small amount of citrus lingering of the tongue.

I held for a long time to try this new brewery out and was not disappointed. Glad to get fresh batches being only an hour away.
