3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge foaming white head that wouldn’t stop coming. Somewhat dry, malt and trashy hops with a dry, but not bitter, finish. Pretty run-of-the-mill.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Atwater in the Park, Summer 2014.
Clear, very light golden body has lazy carbonation coursing upwards to form a small, poorly-retained white head.
Well, looks like another terrible bottled product from Atwater Block. The draught version was passable, though there’s really no comparison between the beers brewed at the Detroit location vs. the beers brewed at the In the Park location. Very dry, grassy, leafy hops with some biscuity/grainy maltiness, maybe a touch of corn-like character and no alcohol.
Dry, at least, with soft herbs, minimal spiciness and pretty straightforward white bread-like maltiness. Ample, yet loose carbonation dosent really add much crispness and it does come off a bit fizzy and very watery. Eh, had worse, but will stick to the Park-brewed beers next time I’m there.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottled (variety case) - pale golden color. Not much aroma - smells like a wheat beer. Flavor is just ok. Nothing special.

pours hazy pale yellow with a thin white cap, some retention and lacing. crisp pils with a touch of bread, other cereals, faint fruitiness - hint of white grapes, lemon, pepper, grass and herbs - nobleness, sulfur. moderately low carbonation, light body - tad watery, dry grassy-herbal finish. relatively clean and tasty enough.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip. The aromas are a notable bread and straw with some mineral-like notes and a touch of lemon. It’s a clear, effervescent pale with a puffy white head. The head leaves an abundant messy lace. It’s a medium bitter with a light sweet and a touch of salty. The creamy, soft carbonation, has a grainy, creamy texture and a medium light body. A spicy, buttery toast, mineral, and lemon peel finish leaves behind a clean spicy and buttered toast flavor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear straw yellow pour with no head. Aroma of grain and must. Mediocre flavor of grain and lemon. Not much to it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Bottle: clear straw with some lighter yellow hints, capped off with a very small grazing of thin, white foam. Aroma is heavily loaded with a raw graininess, mild metallic notes, and a very faint dusting of some leafy hops. Light mustiness, but mostly loaded with a strange grain-y note. Taste is very watered down. Not much to it, at all. More grains, kind of metallic-y sweet in a weird way. A little bit of grassy/leafy hops, but they don’t command the presence I’d like. The malts themselves don’t show up too much, either. Just a bland, pretty boring beer that doesn’t really deliver at all.
