Poured from a stray bottle in a buddy's fridge into a shaker pint glass, an amber color just grading into dark gold with a little white head. Aroma is minimal, grainy and grassy with a low key hay-like hop note. Palate is similarly grassy but with an odd burnt popcorn and straw taste, with very faint cinnamon and licorice perhaps, but the flavor largely driven by this strange singed malt and hay note. Thin bodied and maximally carbonated, as expected for this brewery. Not a great brew but more interesting than Keith's proper and I suppose some of the expected mellow Hallertau flavor is there. Still has an unsavory macro-brewed blandness about it.

A: Orange copper, very little carbonation 4 fingers of beige head, clear filtered.

S: Malty, skunk, spicy, black pepper, slight candied orange.

T: Malt, orange candy, lemon balm, clean linen, light bitterness, slight black pepper.

M: Slightly bready body, low carbonation.

O: Not a bad beer. This Bavarian hop is quite light compared to a lot of American ones. It has some pilsner qualities, but the orange I am not sure where its coming from. Overall not a bad beer.
