12oz Bottle poured into a pint glass.
A - Pours a nice golden yellow hue. The head is a nice fizzy white head with no retention but a small amount of lace. Yeast sediment is also seen floating around in the glass.
S - Smells very earthy and floral. You notice floral notes from the noble hops. Followed by lemon grass, citrus, and a nice bready malt presence. Finally you will notice some yeast character as there is some yeast floating around in the glass.
T - This beer hits you with a nice smooth floral introduction then follows with the earthier flavors. Lemon grass comes in and you notice the citrus you smelled earlier. Bready malt gives this a biscuity like taste and mouthfeel. The hops kick in a bit adding to the crispiness of the beer.
M - Crsip and light bodied but has a malty smooth mouthfeel followed by a crisp floral hoppy finish. The carbonation level is just right and does not overwhelm your taste buds.
D - A quality drinkable session beer that is to be enjoyed on a nice summer day. Really this is one of those beers you always want to have around. Its not overly complex and not a world classic. But is damn good and very drinkable.

Cracked open after a hot bike ride home from the office. The aroma is a simple doughy barley with a hint of toast and caramel and the slightest earthy mineral touch that carries over into the flavor with the malts. The body is smooth and balanced with a touch of sweetness. It reminds me more of a low-hop Czech lager, or a lighter Dortmund Export lager than a kellerbier, but it's a damn fine beer to have at the end of the day. I'd drink more if I had one, but I don't get to Sconie that often.
