Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2011. Pours a hazy and amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus. The flavor follows the nose with additional lemon. The palate is dry with sweetness. Overall a good beer.

I don’t know about this one. Perhaps a misstep for this usually superb brewery. A nice pale ale, but the lemon grass is a bit overwhelming, both in aroma and taste. After all of the double IPAs, Imperial stout, tripels, etc. at BBF, it was still a welcome ALMOST-session beer.
