The clear golden beer is served in a Shaker Pint with a 1/4" white head that soon recedes to a small ring and the disappears entirely.

The aromas include the bready malt and some floral character.

The flavors include the malt sweetness and a bit of breadyness and very little bitterness in the ending.

The mouthfeel is is medium bodied and soft with the gentle carbonation.

A nicely drinkable beer to have again sometime.

On tap at the Lancaster location on Memorial Day 2011.

Pours a clear golden color with a good white head with moderate retention and a ring or so of lacing on the way down. Thin white collar throughout. The nose brings light floral hops. Also, some bread and accompanying mild sweetness. The flavor brings very light floral and earthy hops along with a nice bready character and also light sweetness. Really fantastic balance between these three components. Light to medium body and a dry, crisp finish with nice bitterness. One of the best, if not the best, version of the style I've come across. Well done, Iron Hill Lancaster.

a: This was a clear, bright golden color. It was served to me with a thin, frothy film.

s: Aromas of grains, honey, floral hops, and just a hint of grapes.

t: Lightly sweet and clean overall, no trace of the 7.2% abv to be found. I tasted light fuitiness, honey, and some breadiness.

m: Creamy and fairly full bodied.

d: Very nicely done, really hit the spot on a day that topped out at 95 degrees.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A - Golden color, small white head that dissipates to nothing within a few minutes, with minimal lacing.

S - Big, sweet, bready malts, which become a bit too sweet by the end.

T - Overly sweet bready malts in the front, with light floral hops in the finish.

M - Medium body, ample carbonation, slight bitterness in the finish, and lasting residual sweetness coating the mouth.

D - This beer really needs more hops to help balance out the sweet malts. By the end of a glass, I really didn't want another one. I enjoy a significant hop presence in maibocks, and this one just doesn't have it.
