Cloudy yellow with a short, off-white head.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Flossmoor, IL). Pours a richly hazed golden amber pour, darker hazy body, mellow dulled glow a bit more yellow orange on the bottom and edges. A frothy beige khaki head atop dies to a good filmy layer, laces well. Aromas are gentle spice, bready and straw grains, grass, gentle fruit wafts in as it warms. A bit more dry, earthy hopping, mellow yeasty spice. Initial is lighter in body, a bit dry and grainy as it hits the palate. Bready, straw, gentle dough. Kiss of lemon, florals, touch of grass. Mellow herbal dryness hits the palate a bit. Clean, a gentle spice and yeasty dryness combine with the more dry, mellow malt body. Touches of lemon and earth, almost woody tea and earth in there, a touch of graphite, sharp dry earthy element at times up front. Perhaps ashy? Woody really seems the better descriptor. Not bad for a small beer. Woody, it comes into it’s own. There was an odd feel at the beginning but it really tapers out as we move on and it warms/settles. Solid small beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kind of a weak palate but for what it is this is a solid beer. Light malts, light hops, easily drinkable.
