COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Nsanders (487) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2014
Tap at George and the Dragon. Orange with a thin off-white head. Lemons, peach, grass and malts. Taste was lightly sweet with a lemony finish. Body was medium with a slick feel. Easy drinking pale ale, would be a good summer beer.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2014
Draught at the brewery taproom. Smooth mild fruit nose. Dark amber color. Solid peachy / caramel initial / minimal bittering / finish is like the sweet milk left after the Cheerios have been eaten. Thin-medium body. Decent balance but not a lot of here here.

TwoSipDip (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2014
On tap @ 612. Pours a hazy golden yellow appearance with a cream colored head. Somewhat spicy, citrusy hoppy, grapefruity, lightly bitter aroma. Kind of watery, somewhat buttery, citrus flavor. No.

Ericular (567) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Pours a nice looking pale amber yellow. Aroma is some hops, and sweet grain. Taste is mildly sweet, clean, drinkable with a mildly bitter finish. Pretty light all around, but better than your typical pale lager.

Nuffield (3664) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Plain jane. golden color. The hopping levels here are very low indeed, making this inoffensive but weak. Some sweetness appears later on, with a hint of citrus. But below average in the crowded world of APAs. (on tap at brewpub)

arminjewell (6068) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pour on tap at APN 2013, slightly hazy yellow-orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, floral, and herbal notes, slight lemon in there, biscuit and bread come through as well. Taste is a mix of slight biscuit, bread, slight grass, earthy and spicy hops going into more biscuit, finishing bitter, dry. Not bad, but lacking in depth.

bookman10 (624) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Pours an amber-yellow, with mid-sized head. Aroma of hops and grain. Flavor was a pleasant mix of hops and sweet malt. Nice mouthfeel and good finish. Went well with my pizza.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2013

Bacterial (1402) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Draft at Punch Pizza for $1 - an excellent price for a mediocre beer. Hazy orange pour. Very little head. Malty with a ton of bitterness. Bitter, bitter then it gets more bitter. Did I mention that it’s bitter?

Not as drinkable as a session beer should be. Nice appearance, but a bit flat and with an unexpected bitter finish.
