Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2012
Thanks to Travita for sharing this growler. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of banana and wheat, with a little bit of perfume from the hops. The flavor is very similar, with some nice floral notes, which are complimented by banana and wheat notes. Overall, there is not a lot going on here. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
