Sample at Max's on 4/28/14 (from notes)

A: Lacing. Hazy, light straw colored.

S: Lightly hopped.

T: Flavorful, with a slightly sweet funk to it.

M: Smooth, with tiny bubbles. Good body overall.

O: Good, sessionable and easy to drink. I love Omnipollo, but this is not worth the $15 for a bottle.

On-tap at Pinocchio's Pizza in Media, PA.

A: Pours an opaque, hazy pale lemon with a bleach white head that retains nicely throughout the entire experience. Lots of delicate white lacing left down the glass.

S: Spicy notes with a bit of lemon zest, orange peel, and some grapefruit and pineapple from the hops. As complex as the nose is, it's a bit on the clean side and I had to take huge whiffs to pick up specifics. Would be nice if it had been a little stronger.

T: A harmony of those fruity flavors I picked up in the nose. Lots of lemon and grapefruit provide a citric profile, with some underlying bready malt sweetness. Finish is mostly spice and fruit.

M: A medium body with an overall light and effervescent presence in the mouth. Relatively smooth going down and finishes relatively dry. This one finished a little too dry to be refreshing. I immediately asked for a glass of water afterwards.

O: Overall, a satisfying brew with some interesting and enjoyable flavors. The nose and mouthfeel leave a bit to be desired, but I don't regret taking the opportunity to experience it.

Likely a scaled up version of Stillwater Ale's Classique Post Modern Beer but with an obscene amount of Amarillo hops added to the mix, this self-described "Post Colonial Style Ale" has supreme drinkability and a plethora of fruit and zest.

As the post colonial style ale pours, it does so with a hazy lemon appearance- its turbulent carbonation races to fuel a cottony dry head with long retention and clinging lace. At times resembling sparkling white wine as much as beer, the beer simply has an inviting look.

Spice and fruit fill the nose with wafts of fresh grated white pepper, light cumin and straw. Its growing hop presence carries a tangy pineapple character that's backed by grapefruit and orange peels. A light and tangy acidity further reinforce the scent of riesling.

The flavors bounce right off the tongue with its high effervescence. Its citrus and tropical fruit medley carries a dry and spicy bitterness that easily outlasts its thin wafer-like bread and sweetness. Any of that short-lived sweetness seem to extend from fruit giving a ripe and plump taste. Its peppery-dry finish is playfully tart even as the ale closes with fruit pith, hay and herb.

Its light and zesty body once again pangs against the mouth as the ale prefers champagne like bubbliness over that of creamy ale. As those bubbles pop, they carry the beer to a fast-fleeging finish of peppery warmth, light herbal astringency and bone dryness. Its supreme dryness exposes a minerally taste and a long draw of watering texture in the middle, offering up impression of seltzer.

Likely the ideal ale for piccata pasta with capers and white wine sauce, the ale begs for rich food pairing. Standing alone, its refreshing taste and texture simply begs for something in accompaniment.

Pours slightly hazed & effervescent gold with 3 fingers of pearl white head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Breadyness, lemons, grapefruit

T: Lemons, slight yeastiness & some breadyness, plus a little grapefruit up front. Some pear & pineapple as this warms, grapefruit is stronger as this warms, plus dryness. Finishes dry with a nice citrus & floral hop flourish, some peppery notes as well

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, good balance

Drinks pretty easy, nice for the style, but at this price, it is a one & done...
