TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Draft at Sheffields (Chicago, IL). Poured a glowing yellow slightly orange hue, frothy white yellow head that laces well, dies to a thicker film. Aromas are big on lemongrass, lemon rind, florals, and grainy malts. Initial is a big blast of lemongrass, decent bitterness moves into sweeter grainy and cereal malts, bread, lemony hops and rind, a touch of spice, smooth sweetened fruitiness mellows the beer, but comes back with a decent bitterness on the backend. Not bad, but has a huge lemongrass feel.

dark gold with a hint of orange, great retention and lacing... light nose that show off mostly lemongrass and a little lemon zest, boring... the taste is really sweet and way to yeasty and spicey, finishes bitter to help break it up but I"m not a fan... pass on this

Aroma has a very mild lemon to it,flavor was watery and the lemongrass had an off sensation to it. Didnt come across as beer at all, more like a very old unsweetened herbal tea
