From notes taken on 6/23/11

A: pours a golden yellow into a frosted(as in a hazy glass for appearance, not a glass left in the freezer) weizen glass with a finger of heavy white head that doesnt really leave any lacing.

S: hoppy, lemongrass, a bit of pine and some light malt.

T: the hops take over the tongue quickly, nice light citrus notes and a great hop profile. lemon, grass, pine, grapefruit. balanced well with a light bready malt backbone.

MF: astringent, a bit watery, refreshing.

O: a good PA with few improvement points, but the mouthfeel needs a little tending to.

Pours a clear amber color with a two finger head which gives way to some nice lacing. The aroma is of caramel malt backbone with hints of citrus and a slight piney hop touch as well. The taste is of a caramel malt backbone with hints of piney and citrus hops and a slight dark fruit taste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The drinkability is good, it has a nice balance, not as hoppy as some of the apa's that the hop heads like. It has a nice flavor that you can enjoy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: clear orange in color with a short 1/2" head that lasts a while. Mild lacing develops during the session.

Smell: some orange citrus and some light pine is pleasant.

Taste: caramel, orange and some softer grapefruit flavors, light pine, some ripe plums sweeetness, and a nice bitterness level makes up a nicely balanced beer.

Mouthfeel: lightly crisp throughout with a brief aftertaste. Medium bodied beer.

Drinkability: one of the better beers at Liberty Steakhouse. Easy to drink and can be the session beer for your visit.

This one pours a clear amber color with a decent velvetty white head and good lacing. I get a mild, piney hops aroma with a touch of malty chocolate. The taste brings out some fairly tart hops, more on the citrus side, bready and pretty thin bodied. It's tangy with medium carbonation, decent drinkability but fairly bitter.
