Growler pour into a plastic cup...in my hotel room.

A: Light golden hue. Pours about a half finger, foamy white head. Settles slowly, leaving a blanket, a beer ring, and substantial sticky residue. Lots o' beer ring lacing.

S: Wheat, paper, and just a touch of lemon and an indistinct subtle spice....maybe parsley or basil.

T: Wheaty, with just a bit of bite, and some subtle floral and fruity components.

M: Light body. Kind of a stale feel with a brassy finish.

D: Goes down really soft and easy.

Atmosphere is really good. Nice hue, decent head, and a lot of persistent lacing. Nose is subtle combination of wheat, citrus, sweet notes, and Italian spice. Very well done. Flavor is very wheaty with soft, but distinct flora and fruit. Overall, this is a great quaff.

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head and some debris floating around. Smell is of lemons, some wheat. Taste is wheat, lemons, tangy up front but then a bit mild. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an average beer.

Serving type: bottle

On tap, had a few ten ounce pours into a tulip glass. Pours a golden yellow body with a small white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is of wheat, grass, light spice, and some citric hops. Flavor follows the nose. Somewhat boring, but quite refreshing on a hot day.

Serving type: bottle
