12oz. bottle into a Libby tulip. Clear gold in color.
Grainy and malty and grassy smell. Nice.
Can taste grains and grass. Malt on the end with slight bitterness. Very tasty.
Nice creamy feel with a little prickle of carbonation.
A very good beer. Will buy again for sure. Loved it.

I was happy to see this offering from Franconia on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin. I 've like their other beers, so I was anxious to try this one.

Served in standard pint glass, the beer is a chill hazed gold with a fluffy bone white head.

It has an inviting aroma of fresh grains, a bit of pepper and floral notes.

The beer seemed at the peak of freshness. There are grains, pears, flowers and a peppery hop finish.

The beer is balanced with well integrated flavors.


The mouth is crisp and a bit astringent. It is an easy drinker that hits all the right notes.
