This sunny golden yellow ale was actually infused with lemon grass during brewing! The aroma & flavor gives Sweet Louís a "Fruit Loop Deja Vu" & is perfectly refreshing after mowing the lawn. (WARNING! Moosejaw does not condone the operating of lawnmowers after drinking this beer.)

Draft at OF. Thin, pale hazy yellow tan. Thin oily head. Wow, some weird stuff. Apparently thay thought lemon grass could overcome a schwaggy beer. This is hat you call a shitty WI microbrew. Thin yet still sugary, with a unnatural spicy lemon kick. Sub par nonsense.

[Tap] Pours a light yellow color with a light haze and a nice cap of white head. Aroma of grass, lemon zest, grains and mild hops. Similar notes in the taste, but more of a grainy character. Light hoppy finish. Light in body with high carbonation level. I actually would have enjoyed more of the lemongrass in here.

On draught at the Moosejaw brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden colored brew with a slowly dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops, golden grain malt and a hint of honey. Taste is when the lemongrass flavor comes out with plenty of toasted golden grain malt and a hint of citrus hops. Finish has a slightly dry toasted golden grain malt aftertaste and a fast vanishing lemongrass flavor. I can see this do well for a Wisconsin fish fry on a hot summer day.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2010
On tap at Moosejaw. Poured clear medium golden with a spotty white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey with hints of lemon and lemongrass. The flavor found sweet honey and lemongrass at the core.. sugary finish. Light-bodied and dry on the palate.. rather slick, but an OK feel and flow beyond that.. didnít like this one so much.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2010
On tap, July 22, 2010. Lightly hazy, light orange-golden with a medium-sized, off white head. Lemongrass nose is prevalent but not overly done. Moderate vanilla malts up front with lemongrass herbs dancing in and out. Flavor turns grainy, semi-sweet towards the end. Watery palate. Needs more malt sweetness and body; as is, a very watery, easy to drink light ale.

Light aroma, but no lemon presence. The flavor was similar. Light refreshing body, but no lemon or citrus. Disappointing.

On tap. Pours a clear light yellow. Nose is of lemony household cleaner with a bit of grassy malt thrown in. Not promising. Taste is actually more pleasant. Barely tastes like a beer, and the lemon flavor still seems a little like a cleaner, but there are some nice malts coming through, hops barely present. Overall not bad, although not something Iíd want to try again.
