3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Millstream Brewing Company beer garden. Maybe it was the fresh pour from the tap, or maybe it was the weather, or something like that, but I really enjoyed this on my recent Sunday visit to the Amana Colonies. So this is a relabelled version of Warsh Pail? It seems better to me, a fuller body, fuller mouthfeel, and more hops. The body is medium copper colored with a light khaki head. The aroma has some just-sliced grapefruit and light bread crust. There is also some nutty character. The taste has some out-of-the-oven bread crust with some light orange peels behind that. Very quaffable and quite likeable, a decent ale from Germans in Iowa.

has a clear amber pour with thin eggshell color head. there’s a caramel, straw, light sour dough, and floral aroma. flavors of citrus zest, grapefruit, yeast, caramel malt, and resinous pine. average overall and would be a good summer time session ipa.

Bottle. Pleasant nose with hints of hops and caramel. Murky dark Amber body with a lasting white layer of head. Mouthfeel is a little overly effervescent from carbonation but the flavor is good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy dark orange with big off white frothy head. Grapefruit, hay, caramel on the nose. Very smooth with light carbonation, sweet caramel notes through to the finish. Hints of grassy hops without too much bitterness. Very well balanced.

Thanks to Chris for bringing this bottle over! Smooth fresh nose. The beer starts very floral, intense bitter-floral with a nice slight malty body. The mainpart is a bit sharp-bitter, great floralness, smooth, easy to drink with deepness. Nice!

12oz bottle. Notch is maybe late July? Pours copper, offwhite head. Pine grass aroma, taste is big and hop bitter grass. Not a huge body. Nice enough.
