Poured this can into a shaker pint. Huge thanks to darthvohn for this one!

The mountainous, cratered, bone-white foam towers out of the top of the glass by at least an inch, the Mount Olympus of beer head. This god-like tower of froth fights for minutes, creating a cratered lid with the thickest wall of spider lacing ever seen. The pale golden body emanates out highlights of honey-brown with small bubbles ascending to the cap.

Aromas of unripe pear, grapefruit, honey drenched bread, lemon-y wheat, honey dew, and flowery daisy notes seep from the pint glass. Such a fantastic bouquet, it is hard to fathom this is coming from a beer!

Zoe charms the tongue with initial notes of light citrus, melon, and flowery esters. Her flirtatious stroll leads into earthy, peppery flavors with the sweet bread malt coalescing near the end, a slightly bitter note of lemon playing in the finish.

Zoe has a perky level of carbonation, bubbles snapping the tongue while producing an ever so slight dry finish. A delicate body gliding over the tongue, she feels light on the palate.

What a treat, a real classy lady. The One They Call Zoe is a fantastically hopped lager with bright citrus and flowery esters, a truly bewitching arsenal of aromas. The palate lets the drinker down slightly, but remains an incredibly easy drinking experience. Calling a let down "incredible" should give one an idea of just how good this beer is, well done Hops & Grain!
