On-tap 9/2/10 at the brewpub, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, light malts and some hops

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat, lager yeast and a hearty but light malt character. The some mild sweetness comes in mostly from the malt and not from any fruitiness. The hops presence is mild but creates a good balance. The after-taste is bready.

M: Smooth and crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not filling at all, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a nice lighter lager that is worth drinking for a long time especially if you're looking for something mild but a little bit different.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a clean, vibrant, bright yellow coloring with no head. Looks more like a golden or pils. The nose is solid with banana and clove, with some hints of nutmeg. The flavors have a touch of toffee, with floral highlights throughout. Banana bread and roasty qualities with a slightly charred and hopped character all in the aftertaste. Smooth, quick finish.

On tap at Watch City on 9/8
Served in a pint glass

A: This beer pours a hazy light copper color with a white film of a head. Minor wisps of lacing are left on the glass.

S: Nose is slightly grainy, a hint of vanilla, and wheat.

T: Taste starts with a surprisingly creamy vanilla flavoring before moving in to a citrus hops flavoring. Wheat then becomes prevelent and a slightly grainy aftertaste.

M: Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation, crisp and clean at first, but then a slightly sticky finish.

D: Goes down easily, mild kick, not too filling, I would certainly have another one of these in the future.
