Light lemon grain husk aroma. Mildly sweet and a touch wheaty. Some salty japanese cuisine notes. Pours a middle gold, clearish, with a rocky soap of white. Flavor is a bit sticky with some lighting metallic ringing, before moving into a sweeter, subtler apples and pears malt sugar run. Again, faint grains and mild sweetness. A tinge of hop dust brightens up the smack. Not terrible, not a winner. Thanks Brigadier!

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 Not quite on par with the others I’ve tried from this brewer but still quite good. Well balanced in an unusual way I have trouble articulating. The sweet malt end just fits with the hop/citrus/spice end.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Draught sample at the brewery, mid-October 2006. Pungent-sweet aroma rising out of a hazy gold body with a lasting touch of head....honey, sweet malts and more than a touch of bready yeast make for some nice complexity in a lighter beer....body is much drier than I’d expect, lightly tart and a even sour to finish, thin pale malts and rather watery overall....still, not at all bad for the "Coors Light" of the lineup.

Breadlike yeasty smell, light body, good amount of carbonation, sweet and dry finish. A very well balanced, delicious, refreshing ale.

Ughsmash (7253) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2006
On tap at Ale Asylum. Poured a hazy, lighter golden with a short white head and some lacing. Nose was of grains and husk... some lemony notes... really quite pleasant actually. Flavor was of corn husk and grains.. sharp lemon and wheaty tartness around the tongue. On the palate the tart notes were well-placed and the carbonation was a tad high... solid, refreshing brew.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2006
Bottle. Hazed light straw color with a snowy white head. Looks a bit like a wit. Mild citric and spice scent with hints of orange blossom honey and sweet pale malts. Something is slightly amiss as there is a mild soap/cleaner aroma as well. A light crisp tasting brew, that has just enough thickness in body not to seem watery, Perhaps some malto dextrin, which may explain some of the scents/flavors. Lightly floral hops flavors dance about with the citric hops and are joined late by simple pale malt. Simple, with enough complexity to be an honest brew. This would be great by the lake on a hot summer night.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2006
12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery tasting room. Slightly hazy, golden color with bubbly white head. Light malty cereal grain aroma with a touch of hay and spucy hops. Delicious fresh malty cereal grain and pineapple flavors. Light and fruity on the tongue. Tasty golden.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2006
This was the nakedest beer that they have. It pours to a watery light golden body with a thin white head. The aroma is pineapples and crisp light grain. The flavor is crisp, clean, refreshing pineapple, and has a spicy/peppery kick. The palate has substance. Nice mouthfeel that is crisp, clean, and refreshing. I’d say that this one is very well made.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 On tap at brewery

The first sample of the night from Ale Asylum as we worked our way through all ten beers offered on tap. If this was the ’worst’ of the bunch, then Ale Asylum has a long and promising future ahead of it.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy yellow body had a nice white foamy head with hints of banana nut bread, wheat, hops and pepper intermingled in the nose.

Flavor / Palate - First impressions were of spice, bananas, pepper and wheat. There was no real complexity beyond the first sip. The mouthfeel was somewhat watery, but this would be an excellent beer for sitting on the lawn or patio while you grill out. If Ale Asylum bottles this as one of their first releases it should sell like hotcakes for people who want more than swill.
