Hazy in appearance with scents of lemon, grass, dandelion, peppercorn and musty basement. Taste is tangy with lemon and pine leading the way followed by a slight musty and funky flavor. Mouthfeel is crisp . . . way to crisp for this style in my opinion. Overall I would have expected better from Stillwater but I see what they are going for and it is sure to please some.

Hazy yellow with off white head that has a bit of retention but great lacing. Citrus, pepper spice, grain, and citrus pith in the aroma. Flavor follows the nose. So easy to drink. Could definitely be a daily beer.

This is hands down better than almost any pale lager out here, light but robust in aroma and taste. Some citrus qualities mix well with the cereal grains. Nice fluffy head and lots of sticky lacing. This is an everyday drinking beer, perfect for summertime and picnics.

L: Pours a very light yellow, slightly opaque. HUGE fluffy white head. Good lasting power. Lots of tiny bubbles seen rising. Not a bad start...

S: Sweet. Floral. Light straw. Some citrus notes.

T: Minimal flavor stands out. Quite muddled. Kept giving this beer a try, but just couldn't get a clean picture of what was going on with this one.

F: Light bodied. Cleansing.

O: Not enjoyable. I had a six pack, so I tried to like it. But, just never got a clear picture of what this beer was attempting.
