2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serving: Draft at the Navy Yard brewpub. It pours a light gold with a small white head. The nose is light with a touch of grain and corn sweetness. A bit dense and lifeless on the tongue with notes of grain and corn flakes with a light noble hop note that seems a bit stale. The whole brew seems a bit clunky, not quite getting to where it should be. Not worth coming back to.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
.5L draft at the Gordon Biersch in Leawood. Kansas. The pour is a clear golden with tons of fine carbonation bubbles rising to the top of the Willebecher and a one inch white head that falls quick. The aroma is slightly dirty grains, along with a mineral dustiness. The taste is the mineral cereal grain, much cleaner then the nose, along with a decent amount of pleasant German yeast character. Nice clean flavors. The palate is light to medium bodied, featuring active cleansing carbonation, and a dryish mineral finish. The beer gets a bit watery as it warms. Easy drinking beer.

Tap. Pours clear, pale yellow with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is faint with some notes of straw, corn, and lemon. Flavor is bland, dry malts and corn; really not much more than water. Light body and low carbonation.
