Served in a shaker pint glass at Bigby's Pour House.

Man, if nothing else, "Meridian" just sounds cool to me. I dunno. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light biscuit, very light greens, and very light grass. The taste brings in more of the same, though brighter and with a firm contingent of sweet flowers. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, an alright little beer, but one that's too evanescent for its own good. At least it's not offensive, but that's not the greatest compliment in the world, is it?

Appearance:
---
Clear as day and as yellow as...well you know. But seriously if your bathroom visits are this yellow you should drink more fluids. The head is surprising, lasting the entire session.

---
Smell:
---
A sweet yet metallic scent, with hints of clove and spice.

---
Taste:
---
A slightly sweet, bitter, hoppy flavor. Easy on the taste buds, but not so weak you forget your drinking a craft brew.

---
Mouthfeel:
---
Light, exactly what you'd expect from a session beer. So smooth and so light you can drink it all night.

---
Overall:
---
A really nice session beer, refreshing enough you're going to have a good night, and at 4.5% that nights going to last a long time, I'm sure your girlfriend will be... Satisfied.
