CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Sampled from a growler: Pours a clear bright pale golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty and wheaty nose with a touch of floral hops. Starts with a nice light malty sweetness and smooth hop bitterness before a drier clean finish. A very drinkable and refreshing summer beer. Nothing exceptional, but good for what it is.

nuplastikk (4131) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Growler. Mellow, soft aroma, a little herbal dough. Buttery malt tones. Oily, off-white head. Soft herbal hop tones. Very sessionable, but a little odd, maybe some off flavors. Not bad, just sort of misses the mark. Herbal session beer.
