COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was created with 100% organically grown ingredients, without a particular beer style in mind, only hoping to show improvement in organic ingredients available today. A blend of Briess 2 row, Munich and Crystal malts were used along with enough New Zealand Pacific Gem hops to show their flavor, aroma and bittering.

Cask at the Wrigleyville location. Clear copper color with a lasting off white head that laced the glass. Yeasty bread dough and light cider vinegar aroma. Very smooth mouth feel one would expect from a cask conditioned ale. Subdued fruity flavors of cherry and apple. Tart on the tongue with a slightly bitter finish. Eh.

Clear amber with a fluffy, big-bubbled head. The aroma is definitely malt-centric and shows a nice depth. Caramel, loads of whole grain, some light brown sugar sweetness. Iím having trouble identifying a couple of other components right now. The hops show some nice, Earthy bitterness and a hint of pinesap. The body is nice and full with a soft, almost non-existent carbonation. More malty goodness comes out in the flavor and those hops are stringent enough to stand up to the potent malts. Perhaps a hint of diacetyl comes out, but luckily, isnít too strong. All told, this is pretty good. In some ways I wish this was brewed with a style in mind, because itís hard to compare when their is no baseline. Unless itís a Berliner Weisse, in which case itís crap.
