On draft, served in a shaker pint glass. Dark amber in color. No hops detected at all in the smell or taste, and the malt flavor wasn't interesting either.

Had this at Miller Park enjoying a game. Sadly it was a miss. Too much sweetness. Thin mouth feel.

A light amber color, taste was light caramel and noticeable hop flavor. Mouth feel was fairly thin but well balanced with the low residual sweetness.

*transferred from old notes - 12/29/2013*
12 oz bottle poured into nonic. Faint traces of orange in the aroma, but mostly dough smells. Appears clear amber with a light orange colored head which dissipates quickly. It’s comes on mostly sweet, but it’s a smooth sweet as opposed to overwhelming. It’s a medium body beer with strongest notes of citrus and malt, but finishes thin and caramel-sweet - couldn’t pick up too much of the hops. It has an average carbonation, but turns flat relatively quickly as it warms in the glass. Nothing lingers in the taste,and it finishes very clean. There’s nothing overly special or surprising about this beer. Nothing filling or offensive lends itself well to a session beer.
