Poured from a half liter (17 ounce) Euro-brown bottle into a shaker pint glass. The neck label pronounces the contents "ALE". A moderate pour brings forth about an inch of bubbly, foamy, golden-white head that recedes quickly, leaving a thin, receding sheen of foam. The color is a pale, ruddy-tinged golden with a splash of green. Moderate carbonation.

Lightly fruity on the nose and palate, with hints of melon and citrus and a good backbone of noble hop bitterness (subtly floral). The malt is lightly caramelly, but with a dry finish and a cleansing, light bitterness. Slight hints of spice and vanilla creep in as it warms.

This was my introduction to this style, and I have to say I rather like it. I would say this particular beer is very smooth, light bodied, and refreshing, like a good lager beer, but with enough yeasty and hoppy complexity to keep it interesting. A good choice for hot weather when you want some flavor too. Well worth the sampling at 4-something for a pint-plus bottle. Keep it up Hennessey Grocery!

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a shaker pint glass. No bottling date.

A- Pours a crystal clear pale yellow straw with a high fluffy white head.

S- Sweet bready notes, noble hop notes of grass and slight spice.

T- Similar to aroma with nice sweet bready notes and noble hops. Finishes clean and crisp with a nice bready lingering note. Not sure how old this bottle is but there is no off flavors so I would guess it's within reason.

M- Light, crisp, clean, and refreshing. A prefect beer to have with food and on a hot summer day.

O- This is basically a German pilsner but brewed with ale yeast. It has many taste similarities to it's lager counterpart but with a more pronounced fruity note I suspect from the ale yeast. I wish this stuff could be found on more tap lists.
