Nephilium (1518) - Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Very mild slightly sweet aroma, pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Very interesting flavor, with a touch of sweetness from the wheat, and a hint of spice from the rye. These combine with earthy hop notes to come together quite well. Medium bodied, with a slightly slick mouthfeel from the oats. A very nice change of pace from the Marzens and pumpkin beers that usually come out for Autumn.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear golden with a big white head and sticky lacing. Orange peels, biscuit, some grassy notes, grapefruits, and dough in the aroma. Taste is orange, grass, skme citrusy notes, biscuit malty, and straw with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Fine.

slowrunner77 (7283) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
what a nice surprise, especially being a sale beer! aroma is very well balanced light citrus and earthy hops and malt. soft on the palate, and tasty, even though the hops come through a touch more in the aroma than the smell. Very very nice seasonal for just over a buck a bottle. recomended. 10/18/09-had on tap for the first time. even softer on the palate...near perfect body for the style, and still very tasty and aromatic."
