I taste every thing from SmuttyNose as a notch above most east coast brewers.

A: For starters in a tulip glass, pours a golden apricot haze as it should topped by a persistent bright white, tight head that lasts and laces. Perfect.

S: The most interesting and aromatic of "summer" ales, Floral, Belgian cross over to German Wheat. Smells of ancient summer fields.

T: Juicy, citrusy, and well malted, this creamy ale is bready, zesty, yeasty - made me reach for the pretzel bread with dinner. Great with food. Finishes slighty acidic and peppery with notes of herbs, chamomile and mint. Very complex while remaining refreshing and subtle.
MF: Perfect.
Medium-light on the palate, it's well carbonated, refreshing and clean.

O: Effortless, yet interesting and complex. A rare gem. Must try. My favorite summer ale.
