Can thanks to micham8. Pours crystal clear golden with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly leaving nice residual and decent lacing. Aroma is kinda corny, grass, hay, grains. Flavor is light plus sweet, grainy and grassy, a biscuit kind of malt base. Tiny hint of green apple. Light body, spritzy mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can, canned on 11/03/2014 (date stamped on bottom of can). Served in a stange/Kölsch glass, the beer pours a gold color with about an inch white head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The aroma is nice, the brew smells like bready malt, grassy hops and some lemon/orange peel. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some honey and light floral hops. Mouthfeel/body is light, it’s crisp and it’s also easy and refreshing to drink. I’d probably enjoy this more on a hot day, but it was in the 50’s here today (which is nice for mid-December) so that’s close enough for me. So far I’m 3 for 3 with MadTree brews that I’d like to try again. $1.67 a can at Grain and Grape.
