On tap at O’so Tap House. Amber with a creamy tan head. Aroma is rather herbal with cedar, pine and some caramel. Herbal tasting with tree bark, sandalwood, caramel and mild citrus. Moderate bitterness with a spicy finish. Nice.

Draft at Standard Market. I think. Just a regular blonde ale color in my tumbler. A tight white head. Malty smell with a note of alcohol, and yes, I think I do catch some cedar. Taste is nice and malty, at the low end of the "Imperial" scale. Some sharp hop coming in on a different track, unless that’s the slightly piny taste of cedar aging. Frankly, what I’ve got is a big malty beer without the sugary over tone I get with most blonde ales.

Kegs were miscollared as a white cedar IPA. Actually brewed as an imperial blonde that was lightly dry-hopped and aged on white cedar. Makes a big difference in how you approach it. I like it.

Weird as fuck beer. Taste of gin, absinthe, spices, tastes far mroe alcoholic than it is.

tmoreau (2284) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2013
On tap at Bigby’s in Addison, IL., and shaker served with a hazed, orange/amber hue, soft white head foam, and very clingy, curtainy lacing that remained on the glass throughout. The nose was light but pleasantly perfumy, resin, some fruit sweetness, and citrus. A lightly woody, cedar scent was noticeable on revisiting the aroma as it warmed a bit. Medium bodied with decent carbonation, the flavor presented a medium but healthy hop bitterness that was tempered nicely by a good malt content. Milder east coast or British style IPA? I felt that it was more of a solid, very drinkable Pale Ale. Enjoyed the additional cedar wrinkle!

Draft at Jerry’s. Darker gold with creamy, white head, some lacing / Mellow, floral nose of honey, spun sugar, lacto, citrus, pine / Medium body, fat with soft carbonation, smooth, creamy, moderately sweet but with fine, subdued hop balance, and lightly bitter finish / Mellow but elegant flavors of clover honey, violet, orange peel, graepfruit, caramel, cinnamon / A little on the sweeter, less biting side, giving it a heavier mouthfeel, but still nicely done with an interesting flavor mix.
