Had this at the Pfister Hotel. The hotel itself was pretty good. It was for sure haunted but this beer was not. Am I a ghost. Maybe. A ghost that enjoyed this beer. Wooo it was very balanced. The jazz that accompanied it was too. Good use of hops, barley, trombone and drums.

Have had this on draft, bottle and growler. It is a a very light, fruity and delightful session beer.
It is not as watery as a light lager, as it lingers in the mouth enough to establish a wetting or re-hydration effect that a beer of this body is meant to refresh and not overwhelm the senses.
After drinking aggressively hopped beers for a few days, I first sampled this beer and was underwhelmed. As a buddy from Wisconsin urged me to retry it, I was pleasantly surprised. The light fruitiness and mouthfeel are very nice and this illustrates the variability of the palate in beer tastes and overload.

A - Pale yellow with adequate foamy head.
S- Not much...
T- I literally picked up the bottle and looked to make sure this was beer. This is an incredibly bland ale. Almost devoid of flavor with a dry finish. Very subtle malts.
M- Light with low carbonation, just slightly thicker than a lager.
O- This beer is like a cow among the herd. One of many, nothing makes this better or standout from any of the other cows. Surprised to see the high ratings, maybe more representative of the rest of the brewery's line? Really falls short in terms of taste and substance for me.
