COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed by ale breweries to compete with the surging popularity of lager beer, it remains a regional specialty in the Northeast United States. Our version is light-bodied and pale straw color, but uses no corn or rice as many of the original versions did. The result is a supremely malty and refreshing version of a style dear to our hearts

McNeillR (2024) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Very pale slightly greasy with no head. Nose is grassy, chalky and creamy unsurprisingly. Initial taste is a nice dewy, light crispbread and malty minerally. Carbonation is solid and a light enough mouthfeel. Finishes rich enough, lingers neat breadiness. Bit plain.
