Central Waters is using fresh hops from Wsiconsin and the Midwest Hops and Barley Co-op. Glad to see that.

The pour is light amber to golden. Thick head has staying power. Provided some nice lace.

Nose is bit understated for style - grassy, a bit of carmel malt.

Entry is fairly full and builds out nicely. Flavor of carmel malts, floral, perfumey hops, grass. Snappy bitterness, but balanced beer. Biscuit flavor midmouth. I like the flavor profile of the hops. It is not a northwest "C" hop blast, but a unique Wisconsin indiginous flavor. Spicy and floral.

We need more of this type of beer! It is local and fresh. It brings local flavor to the market, delivered well. Nice effort.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

despite what the folks here say, this beer is wonderful. label must have changed this year, and maybe with it the recipe, because the critiques i read here do not seem at all valid to me. maybe i just got a really fresh one, i dont know, but i liked it a lot. pours clear golden color with a lacey and sticky white head with perfect retention. the smell is fresh hops, floral and oily, very little bitterness presents itelf. malt bill is light, pale and crystal malts, barely a crutch for the hops to lean on. flavor lines up with the nose, hoppy all the way through, but more it a light grassy to fruity way, rather than bitter at all. clean and bright in the finish, sessionable forever. this may be a little light for some american pale drinkers, but i found its fresh pep and light malt complex just right for a sunday afternoon of football. light light body, but big on flavor. strong but not overkill on the carbonation, and overall an impressive introduction to central waters brewing for me. wish i had more than one of these.
