12 oz bottle pours a clear light orange color with a small white head. Smells of honey, caramel, and flowers. Aroma is pretty much the same, with some grassiness. Easily drinkable. Body is at best medium with noticeable carbonation. This has a clean finish which makes me want to come back for more. Very good, but it didn’t make me say WOW.

Solid spring beer. Fresh but definitely malt enough to know you’re drinking something with body.

Very smooth finishing beer. Light refreshing taste. Great balance. Very drinkable and light. Good session beer, even if it lacks some character.

Out of a bottle. Creamy head and firm dark rich body. Very smooth, enjoyable hop balance. Nice finish. Great seasonal.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Aroma is slightly perfumed bread, grainy malts and light bananas. The flavor is malts, fruit, mild sweetness and a tart finish.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle pours light orange-gold with an off-white head. Aroma is faint with light herbal notes on top of biscuit/caramel malt and grassy hops. Flavor shows the same with a touch of honey as well as a spicy alc presence. Overall body is light to moderate and the finish is dry.

brian60625 (735) - Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Clear amber color. Slight hops, sweet, a little bitter, and very dry. There was a pepper aspect to it too. Medium bodied and average amount of carbonation. Very drinkable, not too wild.

pepsican (1419) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Clear gold pour with a white head. Wow, this head was like soda, as in it was huge, but fizzed out after 1 second. Very odd. Lots of caramel and dough in the nose. Flavor is about the same, medium sweetness and just a touch of metallic twang. Fizzy finish, pretty clean. Decent.

BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle. Dirty yellow pour with a smaller white head. Aroma is earth, grass, and rye. Medium palate, softer carbonation - maybe a touch on the flat side, but it works for the style. Taste is earth, rye, pumpernickel. Decent stuff.

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear gold with a ring of white soapy bubbles. Nose of earth, herbal, crackers, rye and celery. Taste is malty, caramel, sweet bread, gingerbread, rye and pepper. Nice sweet finish.
