Took the beer straight from a 38-degree fridge and poured it into a pint glass. The head was minimal, even with a rather careless pour down the side of the glass. While small, the head is very tight, and it coats the glass all the way down. At cold fridge temperature, its flavor doesn't have a chance to really open up. Carbonation dominates your tongue. Let it warm up to the mid to high 40s, and the beer comes alive. It's smells like honey wheat bread, and tastes about the same, with a lingering maltiness, and a sweetness that sticks with you. Overall, it's a very good beer that is nice to sip on when you get home from work.

My favorite go to beer. Never disappoints....compliments any meal, love it with sushi ...if I can't find anything new I can always rely on Lil to satisfy my thirst!!! Fresh and hoppy it can be enjoyed all year round. Even non-beer drinkers can enjoy this beer.
