Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

My buddy just came back from a business trip in Michigan where he stopped at Greenbush. He didn't bring me back anything. Sad face. So, I just went and picked up a bottle o' this, and I ain't gonna share. *raspberry* Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy sunset amber topped by a finger or so of light cream foam. The nose comprises...well, it doesn't comprise much, as all I really get is some very light mixed greens and a hint of bread. The taste holds notes of grass, light wild onion, light rye bread, and a pinch of brown sugar. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this was just an underwhelming beer all around. It's nothing bad, but, for lack of a better word, I just found it, well, pointless.
