Draft on tap at Beer Under Glass 2012 (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich glowing pale golden straw hue. Firm haze, frothy decent brighter white head stays as a film and laces ok. Aromas are gentle tartness, rhubarb, straw, pale malts. Bready, dry, grass. Gentle yeast, pear, apple. Initial medium bodied, offering gentle sweetness, bready and pear, touches of apple, some firm tartness. Gentle rhubarb, faint berry. Middle is gentle sweetness, apple, epare, some tartness and faint lemon. Backend is mellow dry and firm, mellow yeasty elements, fruit and gentle spice. Rhubarb is dry, a bit creamy. Firm, dry, and a bit tart. Enjoyable from the rhubarb’s standpoint.. it covers some of that messy sweetness from Shine On base. An improvement.
