Enjoyed on tap at the downtown brewpub. 38 IBU and 5.4% abv. Golden and lacey. A mild bitterness, neutral aroma, and so-so drinkability. Carbonation is felt too much as minerals in water however. Served at the right termperature, as their beer generally are.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the Madison brewpub.

Another entry in my pre-interview extravaganza. It pours a clear pale golden straw topped by a finger of white micro-foam. The nose is faint, with only trickles of wheat and flowers coming out of the oblivion. The taste holds notes of corn, wheat, light greens, and some puffed rice. The body is light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, not too much difference between this and the German-style pils, but that's not all bad, as both are pretty good.
