I LOVE THIS BEER! I'm a big fan of Two Brothers.

I poured this beer into my Blackhawks pint glass. The smell was awesome. My sense of smell is not the best so I often miss out on a beers scent. The smell was citrusy and made me feel like I was out in the mountains, or in the country.

A nice half inch of frothy foam topped my Warrenville nectar.

I can't wait for my next six pack!!!

This is currently our favorite beer. It has more of a summer vibe to it, but it's not a seasonal per se. I've peddled this beer for several months now and I have yet to hand this to someone and not get an overwhelming positive response. Everyone seems to love it. It's not your oridinary Pale Ale, the citris smell is notable from go. Every can pops with just a little more enthusiasm than regular canned beers. The taste is citris, maybe grapefruit, maybe just garden variety citris, but overall it's a perfect beer for me right now. My guy at the beer distributor says that people are catching on to this beer and that's why it's been a little harder to obtain lately. It runs about $40 a case, but it truely is a cut above the rest. JH

Transparent, pale golden ale. Huge, billowing, creamy head right off the pour. Leaves a dense blanket of foam over the beer for the entire drink. Coats the glass in artistic shapes of lacing.

Brilliant, citric, floral and leafy aroma. One of the freshest, greenest smelling beers I have yet to enjoy.

Mild, bready, slightly buttery malt character. Hint of caramel and honey sweetness underneath. Assertive citric hop with lemon and grapefruit. Fresh pine needles. Very well balanced.

Light to medium body. Well carbonated. Crisp, semi-dry finish. Very refreshing.

Great session beer. One of the best pale ales I have had thanks to the complex flavor and exceptional balance.
