picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2011
12 oz bottle. Aroma- sweet, toast. Appearnce clear copper large head with fair retention. Flavor- Sweet with almost syrupy or cloying quality. More toast underneath. Plenty of bitterness. Palate- Medium-full body, sticky, moderate carbonation. Overall- First in this style that I really focus on. Not as refreshing in these hot sticky late spring days in Virginia.

jgb9348 (4732) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2013
Crisp golden coloured body with a one centimetre tall, fast-dying just off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, nice fresh hops, a hint of raisins and caramel and a bit of white grapes - nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy malt character with the white grape flavour that really shows through, some light citrus and dry malt flavours with a hint of sweetness on the end. Aftertaste shows a good complexity with a very nice balance of malt and hops with some light sugars and a very soft feel. Overall, a nice beer - great for the springtime and a good beer to sample. Definitely worth trying if you can find it and you like lighter styles. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 02-April-2013 for US$0.99 sampled at home in Washington on 05-April-2013.
