look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Rich gold almost amber. One finger of head.

Aroma- Cinnamon off the bat followed by biscuit. Fades to the smell of a well kept Euro Lager.

Taste- Hints of caramel and noble hops. Slight undertones of bitter citrus.

Mouth feel- Smooth and refreshing.

Drinkability- This is one of my favorite session beers. I was sitting outside on a sunny 80 degree day and it was nearly perfect.

Half finger of bright white, mixed bubble sizes with little retention, some delicate lacing to be had. Golden yellow to orange in color, transparent with a soft haze, slowly drifting bubbles within. Pretzel dough, sourdough, multi-grain bread and bitters most noticeable in the nose, mixed citrus notes, touch of spice and grass, lowkey malts allow the presentation to stay crisp and succinct. Medium-bodied, much sweeter here with a clear corn component, dandelion sort of flowers, peach fruit and golden honey. The sourdough to rye bread element persists, more like unprocessed grains, possesses sufficient carbonation to prevent bitterness. Cocoa-led malts manage to break the surface through the mid-palate. Simple enough to come across as a balanced thirst slaker with above average heft for the type.

[Note: I believe this is McHenry "rebranded" in February 2010 -- unsure if the recipe has been changed warranting a new entry, others can better decide.]
