From a 355 ml bottle (1343 is stamped on the bottle) into a wine glass. Reviewed from notes dated August 18, 2013.
A-The brew is golden-orange in color with a slight chill haze obscuring my view. There are a few bubbles of carbonation, but the thin white head drops pretty quickly. A bit of soapy lacing is left behind as I drink.
S-The scent is slightly spicy, with dry wheat-like grain notes, citrus fruit, and biscuity, cracker-dry pale malts. I get a slight whiff of onion as the brew warms. Pretty crisp smelling.
T-The taste is also mostly dry and slightly spicy. There is a nice blend of cracker and biscuit on the one hand, and light, spiced citrus notes, on the other hand. Unfortunately, I continue to detect a light taste of earthy onion, especially as the beer warms up.
M-The brew is crisp, refreshing, and very drinkable. The carbonation is moderately assertive, which gives the beer a light to moderate heft.
O-This is nice everyday beer. It is quaffable, but not boring or insubstantial, and the 5% ABV allows for more than one beer in a sitting without trouble. Its a true session beer. That being said, I keep getting an off-putting onion note that creeps in with every other sip that drags the smell and taste scores down. Without that goofy note, this would rank much higher in my book.
