12oz bottle notched best before OCT.
pours a cloudy yellowish golden color. a decent white head off the pour, settles to a thin layer. some decent lacing. a quick swirl revives some nice creamy head.
simple aroma. lemon zest, some bland cereal grains. thats about it, having a real hard time detecting any peppery spice from the grains of paradise.
about what i expected from the aroma. simple and easy drinking. some nice lemony citrus, lots of grains with hints of wheat, but again, no real pepper (grains of paradise) detectable. a slight hop bite.
light, finishes crisp and refreshing with a nice creamy mouthfeel.
a nice light summer beer, very easy drinking, but i was really looking forward to the peppery flavors from the grains of paradise used. unfortunately they were absent.
