On tap at the brewpub in portland back in the fall of ’08 -- from a fairly sparse old tasting note: hazy yellow pour. sweet malt and pepper aroma. corn, bread and grainy in taste. I found it "interesting"... apparently.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. lightly hazed yellow-tinted amber. medium crispness, mild to medium corn notes, medium sharpness; some sort of mild white peppercorn note shows up, but honestly the chile character is lost on me. crisp body, medium-dry finish, well attenuated, light toasted biscuit-like malt and wheat notes. medium-low bitterness for the style.
