Single bottle (batch 9636) poured into a shaker pint glass. No other dates on the bottle. The label is a map of MI showing the Saginaw Bay area where I used to live for awhile...so from this nostalgia I decided to pick up a bottle.
Appearance: Hazy light golden yellow color with a persistent thin white foam across the top. The foam poured chunky and thick (1/2" thick) but died down to a thinner layer. Strands of lacing here and there noted.
Smell: Citrus/lemony zing with a malty smell and a musty dry finish.
Taste: A very crisp beer with a solid bitter finish. There is no sweetness to this beer at all, but is not mouth-puckeringly bitter either. It's a nice crisp bitterness with a solid lemon/citrus-like tang/tartness aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is good. The beer is thicker than water and goes down really easy with only a little bit of lingering on the teeth.
Drinkability: I view this as an all around good beer, but, I can't see myself having more than one in a sitting by itself. This is really a beer to have with a meal. That crispness and bitter finish suggests something best paired with a meal...I don't know what yet, but something to counteract another strong flavor. Fish maybe? Again, good beer, but even with it's nice ABV I can't see this as sessionable for me anyway.

Full notes taken at our campground in Sioux Falls, SD. Week-long camping review dump ahead.
A- Semi hazy golden body poured from a 12oz to a goblet. White head forms to a finger with a foamy-fizzy texture and fair retention. Small ring and spotty lace result from the cap.
S- Bready yeast with some fruity esters, pale cracked grains, cereal and hops that are citrus spicy and herbal. Has a slight lemony citrus fell to me.
T- Sessionable Golden Ale feel with fair amount of hops, cereal, biscuit and light sweet grains. Floral, spicy and herbal hops with light lemon citrus in the finish.
MF- Light bodied but a creamy chewy texture especially for the style and such low ABV. Carbonation fairly high and works nicely with the flavors present and it all ends with tiny bitters.
Sessionable pale golden ale with a balance of hops and malts. Chewy mouthfeel was a nice bonus considering the style.
