look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint. Clear straw/gold body with a fizzy white head. Little retention and no noticeable lacing.

Aroma is grassy and bready. Slight caramel sweetness.

Flavor is bready and crackerlike. Slightly floral. Pretty simple profile.

Light-bodied and with ample champagne-like carbonation. Nice crisp finish.

Overall, this is a simple but pleasant beer. Nothing special, but extraordinarily drinkable. No off-putting flavors whatsoever.

A-light straw color with almost zero lacing.
S-slight malty aroma
T-slightly sweet
Found out this flag ship beer is brewed in Stevens Point and you can tell the difference between those produced in housed. The beers produced in the brewpub are fantastic. Those in bottle have a huge drop off.

A - Light, straw color with a large, smooth, sticky, frothy, bright white head. Good retention but little lace is left.

S - Grainy malt dominates along with a touch of wheat grain/spiciness. Hints of grassy and floral hops.

T - Grainy/wheaty flavors are dominant. There is a subtle spiciness that often accompanies wheat. Light grassy and earthy hops, nothing too strong but enough to be present.

M - Light body with average carbonation. Pretty crisp and clean.

D - Easy to drink beer for the summer. Nothing too exciting, but it's fairly refreshing.

Notes: Decent beer for someone who typically drinks macros/adjuncts. Easy to drink and refreshing that makes a decent replacement for adjunct lagers and the likes.
