Our lightest beer . A great organic beer. With an exceptionally crisp palate, this ale balances the light malt palate with a subtle bitterness. This ale is an ideal beer for those unaccustomed to micro-brewed beers. Made with pale, wheat, carastan and carapils malts. Hopped with Cascade, Saaz and Tettnang hops. Made with pride and great taste from the worlds first certified organic brewery.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade as an extra. Pours a clear pale golden color brew with an average sized white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, fruity profiles with a touch more golden grain malt than most golden ales. Flavor is light to medium bodied, golden ale taste with some mild herb hop character. Finish has a short and light spiced hop flavor followed by golden grain malt aftertaste. An average golden ale overall.
