Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear pale yellow-gold color with a thin bone white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is mildly hoppy with a bit of grainy malt. Light-bodied with lively carbonation and a light hops character. Some sweet malt is present too. The finish is short and mildly bitter with a touch of spiced hops aftertaste. Alright for what it is.

Nice, golden color, with a slightly floral/hops smell. Tastes decent, with no odd aftertastes or jarring notes. The real key to this beer is drinkability. I managed to down a pitcher of it last week, with no real ill effects ( I'm about 160 lbs, so there is not too much fat to absorb the alcohol). Overall, nothing special, but goes well with all of the food, as well as being able to be enjoyed throughout the evening.

On tap at brewery, 01/07/08.

Light golden, crystal clear pour.

Thin skin of foam for a head. Almost no aroma; what's there is hard to ID: vaguely sweet.

Typical corn flavor. Sweet off the bat, but fades quickly. Really no hop or malt character to speak of.

Yawn.
