Very good beer. Little lighter than Stella. I would get it again. I have nothing more to say about this.

Nice bready aroma. Rich sweet malt up front. Different tart flavor comes in on the back end. Finishes fairly smooth. O.k.

ARH (777) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2015
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is grainy with a biscuit and light citrus quality that fades to mostly caramel. The beer is crystal clear and straw colored with a very dense, micro-bubble head thatís a fluffy, kinda whipped-looking, white. A medium ring is retained with a wispy surface, and a dense, runny, sheet lace tries to form on the glass, but only a bit sticks. Itís a medium sweet and medium light bitter. Thereís a spritzy quality, thanks to the foamy and zippy carbonation. The texture is thin and smooth with a light body. The easy drinking beer contains notes of cornmeal, grass, light citrus, and light caramel on the tongue, with a bread crust finish. Thereís grass and or a light spice to the aftertaste with some bitter herb. Itís also lightly astringent.

12/28/14. 12oz bottle from the Milan Hy Vee. Hazed golden pour with a small khaki head. Green apples and ketchup in the aroma, a bit of caramel and maltiness. Same on the flavor, ketchup, bordering on acidity, green apples, malty. Blech.
