COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
5 Grass is a refreshing yet substantial beer that is pale in color and nicely hoppy. With this beer, we wanted to invoke the brisk, clean aroma of the desert. The recipe makes use of three unique hop varieties as well as some carefully chosen herbs and spices - juniper, sage, and Tasmanian pepperberry, among others - to give a beautiful outdoorsy scent. With itís smooth clean malt flavors and a unique, complex nose, 5 Grass is like a refreshing walk in the wide open spaces.

In Aztec mythology, 5 Grass was the symbol of life. In this worldview, nature is not inanimate, but is filled with life. Every bug, every flower, every plant is alive and filled with a spirit; each relies on everything around it to sustain and create a living world. 5 Grass invites us to reflect that we are a part of this web of life and that there are forces in nature that can intervene in our lives, which we are best served by knowing and respecting. By knowing nature, we come to know ourselves

Draft. Pours a clear copper with a finger of white head. Aroma of grass and light citrus. Taste is light bitter. Grass and light orange citrus. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. Great summer beer.

Mohogany pour with a tan head. Aroma is spices. The spice flavor dominates the beer. I didnít really notice the hops. The head went away rather fast. The beer was flavorful though.

Had this again recently and itís actually much better than I remember. Definitely tastes a bit like Iíd imagine a campfire would- woody, herbal, some heat on the back. Juniper and sage prevail, with a nice balance between booze, herbs, and carbonation. Enjoyed.

Aroma is malts and a medium hint of juniper berries. The flavor is citrus, malts, juniper berries and a tangy/tart finish.

Bottle at Trattoria 10 in Chicago....pretty hip place for a craft beer. Anyway, it was sort of a disappointment. Very mild hop nose and initial taste....some interesting tastes...guess thatís the Tasmanian pepperberry....but overall without a major APA nose or taste...

Solid. Lots of hops but with a funky car taste. Mild mouthfeel. Grass and wet cement. Medium finish.

Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours a coppery amber with a white head leaving terrific lacing. Aroma has sprucy pine and a lot of spiciness. Taste is of sweet malt, some resin and juniper berries, with some tangy spices. Somewhat subtle and light. Finishes sweetly tangy. Would have guessed a saison from the aroma, drinks more like a light pale.
