Reviewed from notes: pours an amber color with white head. Cereal grains and some light hop notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a weird sweetness.

A. Murky golden orange color with absolutely no head at all on my particular bottle. The carbonation is weak at best. I've gotten burned on shelf life in the singles cooler at the store once again, it seems. There isn't a visible date code on this one, either to deny or confirm my suspicion. :(

M. Aside from being flat, the body isn't that bad. Pretty light and weightless. A good thirst quencher.

S, T. Now this is where things get interesting. Despite being led to believe that this is an old bottle by evidence of lack of carbonation, the nose (and taste, for that matter) are still full of decent amounts of crisp floral hallertau signature profile over a lovely sweet malt. It comes across as a golden ale sweet malt paired with pilsner hopping. Now I wonder, after reading other reviews stating that this beer is normally lowly carbonated, if I have misread things and this beer is actually fresher than I thought. Because the crispness and hopping certainly speaks volumes of freshness! And if really is old, than I've got to be impressed by how well the flavor has held together. Either way, it means this beer is worth trying out. Yes, it is simple. But it is simple in that Zen sort of "clean" way that something done correctly simple can be.

This seems to be the spiritual sister to NG's other exercise in simplicity, "Totally Naked" If you like the way that one drinks, you'll probably like this one too, and vice versa.
