3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled via growler pour thanks to Doug H at the 29th Annual ABA Meeting in Bloomington, MN. Pours a clear golden yellow pale colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, some citrus and lemon zest hops, plus some grassy hops. Taste is light bodied, with flavors of golden grain malt, grassy hops and a hint of lemon. Finish is light, clean cut with a crisp aftertaste. Bring on the summer sessions!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale, transparent and colored like diluted canola oil, with a creamy white head that retracts as if cellophane has been blasted with a hair dryer. Herbal butter and lemon sprouts pester the senses along with mild dishwasher detergent and lemon juice spritsed over crescent rolls. Light flavor, but there’s a decent croissant / pastry / biscuit temperament that rings strongly as it falls down the hatch. Mild chomps of sky breeze and cotton Lysol spray gives credit to a light springtime floral palate package. Lighter bodied and free from searing and acidity. Supple carbonation may detract from the flavorless virtues, but it all fades into a mouthful of kneaded bread dough in the end.

Pretty weak brew after you have a few of the other Great Water selections like Mr. Smooth! I would say when I was there, 90% of the people where drinking this, as they all look for the beer that is closest to Mich Golden, which every token person that knows nothing about tasty brew drinks. It is certinaly much better then Mich, but most of those people would never know...
