COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew is gold in colour with a tight white head. The aroma is of sweet grain, while the body has a toasted honey character from the melanoidin malt we add. There’s an herbal hoppy nose from the Mount Hood hop (a Hallertau variety grown in the NW United States) and a fruity finish from a cool ale fermentation.

nice job for the style, crisp on the tongue, good carbonation, refreshing, quite light - but not a light weight

ljthiessen (511) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Some good citrus and honey elements to the flavour, but oddly herbal and floral as well. Very drinkable, easygoing beer and a good nod to its German roots, but the flavour profile is just a bit odd for the style and feel.
