3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub in St Cloud, Minnesota. Pours a clear golden ale brew with some visible side glass bubbles, an average sized white head that quickly dissipates to a white ring when severed very cold. Aroma of mild fruit scented soap a touch of apricots and toasted bread-like malts. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of toasted golden bread malt, dried apricots, some green vegetable, and some grassy hops. Finish has a light coriander seasoned aftertaste that still retains the apricot and a crisp toasted golden malt flavor.
