Picked up a single at Happy Valley BevMo 3-18-17 for $3.29. Enjoy by 4-18-17 but stored in the beer fridge since purchase.

Beer poured a golden orange with a nice white head with the original pour.

Nose had hints of earthy and floral hops.

Taste was pilsner like. Earthy and floral hops over a elevated malt base with no lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall this brew unfortunately was past its prime but still a pretty decent brew. Probably knocked down .25 points in most categories. My takeaway is that this would be a nice IPL like beer fresh!

Poured from a bottle purchased in North Carolina in Chicago -- nice honey color, sudsy foam. May be a little past optimal drink by time. Nose is earthy onion. Mouthfeel fizz, light carbonation throughout. Taste is onion, earthy, bitter with a thin backbone of caramel, bready malt. Not quite happening for me but decent enough. Might have enjoyed more fresher.

Beautiful clear golden orange with a finger of head
Floral notes, citrus, light hops, and even some dark fruits and caramel as it warms.
Overall a delicious beer.
