A- Light amber color to the beer, it had been stored on lay-a-way for a while before I got a hold of it, so it might not be the best example. Nice Lacing, but it dissipated quickly
S- Has a sweet tinge to it, typical of an ale
T- tastes like a normal ale, but a little lackluster compared to others, still better than a generic ale you might find, however this brewery produces better beers
M- Lots of carbonation.
D- This beer is definitely designed to be consumed in large quantities, which is a good thing, its not too filling and the taste stays crisp.

(on tap at Über Tap Room and Cheese Bar - served in a pilsner glass)
A: poured to the very top, so without much foam... the color is a light khaki, liquid a good bit hazy, with what appears to be a some sediment floating about
S: bit of a nutty, toasted oat bouquet... no fruitiness, no hops of note... clean, woodsy note from the yeast
T: oat cookie... not oatmeal cookie, with the raisins and spices and all - just a simple, lightly toasty, slightly doughy malt flavor - kinda like chewing on a basic, cereal-like American 2-row - or maybe even low-sweetened Life cereal... it's good! the flavors are very mellow and clean... I can't be certain, but I might've got some of the corn in the finish - a mild sort of cornmeal... any hop flavor, if present, is merely in the background, providing a spec of balance
M: very light and clean, kind of like an adjunct lager with a mild grainy grittiness... a body bordering on watery... mellow carbonation, no sizzle
O: BA calls this a "cream ale", NG calls this a "Naturally Cloudy Farmhouse Ale" - I can see both points of view - the closest thing I could compare this to would be a zwickelbier, but without the lemony and grassy flavors and rounder, fuller body I often get with those... drink this like your ordinary, everyman lager - I like it for what it is, it stands out
Serving type: on-tap
