2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half pint on tap at the brewpub. The aroma on this has some citrus lemon character, as well as some soapiness, too. A little spicy. with what seems to be some coriander. Almost like they used some Grains of Paradise. Moderately hazy yellow body with a bubbly, medium white head. Starts with some cereal-like malty sweetness. Light soapiness in the middle. Not much else happening. No hops, and a bit of a milky texture. A little undercarbonated, and not too far from being a witbier.

[Tap] On tap at the brewpub under the name "Truckee Blonde Reserve". Pours a rich golden color with a foamy white head. Nose is of cereal grains and white bread. Crackers, light malts, mild grassy hops and sweet grains in the taste. Very nice mouthfeel and good body for the style. Crisp and clean finish. Well done.
