ARH (559) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The light aromas of lemon and bread emanate from the beer. The clear, effervescent, pale beer is topped with a thin, white ring and a light, dusty surface. A splotchy, light lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet. The light body is thin and zippy with crisp lemon, pine, and bread notes. The spicy finish is slightly astringent and is followed by a bready. aftertaste
