4.2% ABV per the label.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy bone head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, caramel, banana, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, caramel, banana, and slight spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but pretty forgettable for an American example of the style.

Serving type: bottle.

Sampled on tap at Sleepy Dog; March 2011
This beer arrives with a touch of haze in its lighter gold body that sits underneath a pale head. A big, buttery, diacetyl note in the aroma is backed by a notes of dishwater and perhaps a hint of grassy grain. After searching for some beery notes for a while I get a hint of some clove and bubblegum like aromatics.

The flavor has a creamy texture / slickness to it with flavors of sweet corn and a slight tinny / metallic note in the finish. Clove flavors linger on the tongue for a bit and there is a soap like flavor to this as well. My first sip also has lots of buttery diacetyl in the middle that lingers through to the finish. The clove does take over eventually though. Lots of diacetyl in this beer means that it boosts the slickness and body of this brew. No real wheat or grain flavors are noticeable underneath the dominant flavors.
