part of the sampler paddle. the roating brewmaster's special
a-golden yeloow with a fluffy white head that left decent lacing.
s-mild with some apricot to it.
t-very much like magic hat #9, apricot with a hint of strawberry without losing it's beeriness.
m-moderate to high carbonation, a tongue tingler. a bit on the thin side
d-pretty darn good. probably my 3rd favorite. this one is good and accessible unlike their bad wheat ale which is the worst thing that falls out of their tappers. definitely worth a try!

4 oz tap pour into a mini pint at the Minocqua Brewpub in Minocqua, WI.

A - Hazy yellow in color that's average looking with some good white clingy lace sticking to the glass after it's consumed. No head or retention on top though.

S - Low aroma of pale malt that's very plain with a touch of creaminess that smells like it'll go down smoothly. Somewhat bland though.

T - Creamier taste that the aroma displays. A decent pale malt contribution holds this one in place while a touch of cream and honey linger. No hops at all.

M - Medium-light bodied with a smooth flavor profile and a decent, sweeter finish.

D - Decent brew but the sweetness is a little cloying for it to go down nicely on a hot day. Needs a little more balance.
