Pour was simiclear from the tap at Pikes by pikes market.

Taste was clear with a hint of malt and hop.

Smell was nonexsitent as far as I can remeber (damn if I can find my notes on that but I really don't remeber being over impressed with smell)

Good Med head.

I could have drank about 4 more of these and it went down with easy. I really enjoyed this and recommend you try it. If you get a chance try it at Pikes like I did....I got a great shot of there tank as well....

Mild noble hop aromas. Thick, white, head with good retention. Light, clear, amber color. Biscuit malt flavor with mild hop bitterness on the finish. Finishes clean with some residual malt. Light mouthfeel with good carbonation. Refreshing beer, light, without being a "lite" beer. Good summer session beer.

Golden brown color, medium white foamy head. Aroma is sweet and grassy, with a touch of fruit ester. Slightly hoppy, some maltyness, slightly sweet (apricot?) yeast esters. A session beer (German style). Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is malty, slightly sweet.

Pours a light golden, slightly orange color with a nice frothy white head.

crisp with a slightly unfiltered mouthfeel.

solid bready malt presence upfront balanced with a nice citrus hop presence.

finishes clean with a light bitterness and undertones of pine and floral hops.

Overall easy drinking, crisp, mildly hoppy pale. Definitely session-able.
