521st review on BA
Draft to Pint
@ Alpine Beer Pub

App- This was almost water clear with some yellow food coloring. No head just a thin layer of bubbles. Same as the base beer from which its brewed.

Smell- Very very light. I get faint fruits all around. The extract is okay, I am sure if fresh apricots were available it would kick it up a notch.

Taste- Taste follows the nose. Its a run of the mill APWA with some fruits in it but doesnt bring a whole lot to the table. As above the fresh fruits would have worked wonders vs. extract.

Mouth- Light bodied and high carbed. Left just a watery wheat taste and no fruit.

Drink- It was okay, just a base beer to appease the masses with something light. No real flavors behind it, but I could see a lot of people in SD slammin this for summer @ Mission.

Serving type: on-tap
