Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MEsquandoles on 12-03-2011

A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

Least offensive beer at Jester King. That being said, this tasted like stale and lightly carbonated urine. I poured the rest of it on the ground to protect my friends and then went to the awesome pizza place just down the way.

Had on cask with a pretzel . Terribly drinkable and I could see myself drinking this all day if it were cheaper. Everything is mild with this beer and is comparable to water but turns out with plenty of spiced and yeasty flavors to make it interesting. Mineral quality is great.

Smells of soap and vomit and if you drink it, these tastes also unfortunately follow.

Bright golden color, slightly hazed. Nice thin, lacing head. Tangy citrus aromas (tangerines, clementine oranges) mix with fruity esters and faintly musty yeasty notes, atop a bed of fresh-smelling cereal grains, notably wheat. Clean, continental hop profile. Smells fairly lager-like (a la pilsner): well-hopped, clean, light, fresh. Exceptionally clean and light on the palate, with impressions of grain-and-hop tea. Also expect notes of fresh cut grass. The grains give way to an impression of very heavy mineral water and Belgian yeast, including a touch of white pepper. Expect some gentle citrus peel, distinct notes of lemon, and a slightly vinous, green-grape quality, all nicely dried out with a gentle finishing wheat twang tartness. Small beer can be grand! This is a simply beautiful session beer. The smallest of three beers in a series of escalating ABVs: Le Petit Prince (2.9%), Noble King (5.3%) and Mad Meg (9.6%), all brewed with the same base ingredients (malts and hops), essentially scaled up throughout the series. Jester King can make 'em big and they can make 'em small--the small beers are really quite exceptional and what sets them apart--so much flavor packed into sub-4% ABV brews. Fills the niche nicely. Would love to see more breweries taking that kind of gamble and putting out other quality, low-ABV beers.

The beer pours a very light, slightly hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat and oranges, but other than that there is a not a lot going on. The flavor is a little bit more complex. I get some wheat and yeast notes, as well as some orange and lemon characteristics. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. By the taste you can definitely tell this is a very low alcohol beer, but for what it is, it is not bad at all.
