Bottle purchased at War Horse Brewing Company in Geneva, NY.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow. White fizzy one inch head, not much lacing.

Smells include grassy hops and sweet grains.

The taste is similar. Very refreshing beer- some slight bitterness from the European hops- grassy and tea-like, very leafy. The back end is sweet.

Crisp and very refreshing- this worked very well as a shower beer. Light bodied.

One of War Horse's better beers- most of their beers are forgettable. This one doesn't knock your socks off, but is very drinkable.

Very pale with just a touch of cloudiness. Smells of grapes and honey with a bit of hops aroma. The taste is only slightly bitter with the Riesling grapes prominent in this one. Nice sweet and slightly bitter brew that is super refreshing.

Appearance: Lightly hazed, and infused with some very fine particulate matter, orange-golden body. Medium-small, near white head.

Smell: Malts hinting of bread and biscuits paired with a pat or two of unsalted butter. Faint sweetish toffee, honey hints. Very minute notes of apple and light herbs.

Taste: Modestly malty with some vague biscuity, bready notes and a sweetness akin to toffee and honey. Then, the Peace Bomber bombardier releases a salvo of buttery diacetyl. Low hop character, bitterness. Dry finish with a taste of butter-brushed biscuit tops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It needs some work.
