Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Review based on notes I found in a file from July 4, 2010.

A - The beer poured a slightly hazy light straw color with a nice larger white head.

S - The beer smelled of grain, hay, and spice.

T - The beer started with a clean grain malt flavor with a mild bitterness. The middle has hints of lemon and spice and finishes slightly sweet.

M - Medium body with a lot of carbonation.

D - Good.

Overall, I thought the beer was ok but not special. I think there are better representations of the style out there.

Serving type: bottle
