Back is the fold after a couple years' hiatus.

Pours clear, clean gold with a brief white foam.
Scented of candied apples, juicy pears, dry prairie, and honeysuckle.
Begins with a caramel-glazed sweet apple fruitiness, towing with it pear and apricot. Flickers of nuttiness prelude caramelized ginger and a return, of sorts, to sweetened applesauce. The hops are both grassy soft and stalky sharp, juxtaposing lavender and fescue grass. Squeals of apples still exist upon the swallow.
Medium in build, inching possibly larger. The carbonation is light but persistent.
Akin to a juiced hellesbock....which is, more or less, what it is. This was a favorite of mine, and I'm ever so glad to have it back.
Delicious and basically peerless.

A blast from the past that is back in my hands thanks to Cokes..

One of the first micros I tried in the early to mid 90's...it went away and now it is back..thankfully...

I view this as a lager/pilsner using wild rice...the nose is spicy and inviting...great smell....taste is lightly spicy, bready and nutty...body is on the light side of medium..extremly drinkable as this bottle is just about gone before I can really describe all it's subtle qualities..

Just got another sixer and the crispness is great...very thirst quenching and tasting...would make a great beer for a summer picnic...
