Bottle poured into chalice

Clear golden orange, no carbonation , one finger white cap, no lacings

Grassy aroma, hint of orange citrus, hint of spice

Sip of malt, grassiness, wisp of spice. Slight sweetness

No sudsing, smooth, pleasant

Nice beer for a hog summer day after cutting the grass

If I lived in WI, this would be my daily. It's smooth, goes down easy, and doesn't fill you up right away. Solid beer.

Bought in Milwaukee, brought home to CT. Cask conditioned ale, poured from a bottle. Had a slightly cloudy golden color, nice creamy head with good lacing. Sweet aroma. Mild taste, subtle flavors with a bit of malt sweetness. Overall, a nice cream ale with a low abv, perfect for a lunch when you need to keep working in the afternoon!
