UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 Bottled. Pours a pale golden color. Aroma is grainy and acidic. A little malty in flavor. . Slightly bitter finish. Not one of Karl’s best efforts. Drinkable.
Tap: Pretty decent, better than bottled.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear and golden with a moderate white head that diminished rapidly leaving some lacing. Not much aroma, mainly soapy malt with light floral notes. Flavor is better than the aroma by a bit - sweet mellow, light toasty malts with a little citrus, grassiness and a weird herb and biscuit finish. Light body and prickly carbonation. An unoffensive, non-challenging, easy drinking summer cooler, about as good as I expected.

Draft. Golden beer with a big white head. Light malt aroma with slight citrus notes. Slight spiciness in the flavor, noble hops and a bit of playdough.
