Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Skidz on 03-12-2010

You hold a session beer with a bright bold blend of five hops that flirt obligingly with the smooth malty backside. Don't let this one lay around it is brewed to be enjoyed today. Bold and engaging without pretense, because in Wisconsin you do not have to be extreme to be real.

A fantastic pale. Great aroma. Taste is very good, really nice hop profile. Light, drinkable, was definitely the best beer in their variety pack.

Served in a pint glass

Eyes
Slightly hazy golden body. Good sized foamy white head collapsed and left a decent amount of soapy lacing throughout.

Nose
Grapefruit up front. Floral notes also lived in the hops. Not much from the malts besides subtle notes of nutty grains.

Mouth
Citric hops hit the tongue first. Grapefruit blended with herbal flavours to create a vibrant, yet contained hop flavour. A mild biscuity malt backbone served as a great platform for the hops to be showcased on. Light body, leaning toward the medium side. Moderate/high carbonation.

Overall
Excellent pale ale. Plenty of flavour. Would be perfect on a warm day!
