Date: 8/28/14
Location: Halftime Mamaroneck
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Light amber to dark gold near its edges. Some haze. Decent head with good retention. The carbonation clings to the edges like the beers life depends on it.
Aroma: Smells like a mini bakery in the glass. Wafts of wheat bread and light toast. The wheats seem to overpower the rest of the beer. The hop aroma is slightly floral and in the background. A little bit of DMS as well.
Taste: Again the flavors are swinging into bakery mode. Clear pils flavor covers over a faint hops flavor with light bitterness. Light DMS flavor hides in the background.
Mouthfeel: Medium body medium carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel.

Poured from a green 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bready malts. Taste is malts, biscuits, some sweetness, alcohol is present as well, just a touch of hops.Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.
