Kansas

3.7/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Thanks to BA SammyJaxxxx for tossing this in on a recent trade. Enjoyed while tailgating for Kansas City Renaissance Festival 2013 and poured out of a brown 750 mL bottle into a plastic solo cup because it's better than drinking out of the bottle. No dating that I can make out on the bottle.

Appearance - Amber golden body with ample haze and a nice fluffy finger and a half head with some pocking. Retention is quite good, leaving light lacing residue in places on the side of the cup.

Smell - Very fruity, with melon, cucumber, and tropical fruit in addition to some light citrus characteristics.

Taste - Quite tropical, much like the smell, but more subdued. Now, there is also a grassy, pine-like bitterness accompanying the fruity phenols. I also get some of the wheat grain, which gives the fruit element a little more heft.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied and with moderate carbonation. Refreshing, and with a slightly bittersweet finish.

Overall, a bit different tasting from most APWAs I've had in the past. I've had some that were pretty hop forward, but those have seemed to be on the citric side of things. This one is much more tropical and sweet. Not bad at all, but there are likely others I would reach for first.

Bottle: Poured a dirty golden color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of nice wheat malt with some grassy hops notes and some light bubble-gum notes. Taste is dominated by really nice wheat malt with some light grassy hoppy notes with some light bubble-gum notes. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Very enjoyable wheat ale – brewer should not keep this one as a one-off.

From a 750 ml bottle, this beer is a pale yellow, effervescent, with a thick and soapy head. It has a spicy and fresh aroma. Hoppy, some earthy, herbal scents too. The taste is bitter...full and very well balanced. A nice mix of wheat and strong hops. It has a peppery, fruity, lemony, ver sharp flavor. Soft and spicy. Lingering and bitter finish.
