3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Moving out of KS rate-a-poolza. 12oz bottle poured into a .25L Corsendonk goblet. Bottled on the 38th day of 2013. Best by 06//13. Donated by somebody at the Lawrence Brewers guild
Pours with a small head and a clear golden body. A vortex of carbonation bubbles from the center. Aroma is pretty damn hoppy for the style. That hoppiness is mixed with a clean lagered biscuit maltiness. Flavor is similarly hoppied past traditional (but not to strong) with a good white biscuit maltiness. Goes down easy with a slight hop bitterness and a soft white bread malts aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of wheat and yeast. Pretty nice head and not-bad lacing. Bready, smooth flavor. Like the mouthfeel a lot - creamy without being thick. Only wish it had more aftertaste - between this and Summit’s heller bock, which I also had today, I prefer Summit’s and its citrusy lemon finish. This is still very drinkable, though.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a rich, almost sparkling, amber with a medium white/tan head. Aroma is lightly of hops with an accent of honey and grains. Tastes moderately sweet though nothing too exciting. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a clean finish. Overall, a "middle of the road" beer, not bad but nothing to rave about either; sure to satisfy but not a first choice beer.
