Enjoyed 7/1/14, reviewed from notes.

A - Slight hazy, gold body and a thin white head (4.00)

S - Bready with a hint of earthy/spicy farmhouse esters. (4.00)

T - More peppery-spice ester character. Light toasted malt, little-to-no hop character unless i'm mistaking some of the yeast esters (4.25)

M - Vibrant carbonation and light body makes for an extremely drinkable brew (4.25)

O - A truly well put together beer, I see why it's so popular in Wisconsin. (4.20)
