Pours golden with a moderate, light head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, some wheat. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy for this style. Nice change of pace. Flavor is somewhat sweet, wheaty, with a light hop bite.

I’m not sure why I don’t like this beer. All the ingredients are there for a great brew to be loved by me, but I think it’s a little acidy, and there was something not quite right about the mouth-feel of the beer. Not the best beer from a pretty good brewery. From a bottle.

Thanks Ben! Had this one bottled at the lodge at Dixon Lake Resort, Squaw Lake, Minnesota. Cloudy, light orange pour with a thin, bubbly head, piney hoppiness, very drinkable and balanced. Good!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Surprised at how light and airy the taste was at first with a quite hoppy aroma. Very smooth with a light, almost sweet aftertaste. More flavorful than Spotted Cow, yet lighter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is a light golden color with a crisp thick white head and some nice lacing. Aroma is clearly hoppy, grainy, some toast. Flavor is well hopped some floral and grassy notes with a fair amount of grain and not much sweetness. Palate is medium to light bodied, medium carbonation finishes slightly sweet at first then bitter. A great beer for the sytle. Great beer to ween folks from macro swill.
