On-tap at 5 Points

Apparently this beer features the same grain bill as their pilsner, but uses an ale yeast instead. I wasn't really sure how to classify this one, so APA it shall be for now.

A: The pour is a golden color with a hint of some amber coming in and a fluffy white head.

S: The nose is almost exclusively bready. Lots of malts with just a hint of noble hop aroma to it. A bit of grain sweetness as well.

T: The flavor follows the nose for the most part. This is pretty bready with a bit of grain/adjunct (corn?) style sweetness to it. The hop character is quite faint, maybe just a tiny amount of bitterness.

M: The body is on the lighter side, but not thin or watery. A decent carbonation that leaves a nice crisp, refreshing feel on the tongue.

D: Overall, not a bad beer. I was a bit more fond of the pils, which is rare for me, but this could have used a little bit something "extra".
