3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
MiBG Summer Fest 2009, 2nd beer of the Saturday session: Slightly hazy golden amber hue with a minimal head. The aroma has notes of lemon lime, wheat husks, oak, minerally water and some herbal notes. The taste is tart and twangy, wheat and pale malt background before the dry woody finish. The mouth feel is quite refreshing, lively and quite a summer quencher. A true session ale, Mikey Likey!
