draft sample at the Newcastle source...blonde ale..with spicy lemony aroma..light bodied with a bit of funk and a solid dry finish...some nuttiness from the spelt I suppose but nothing over the top...another easy drinking well crafted beer from Oxbow that is quite crushable..wow quite impressed by the complexity of Oxbows offering and indeed they are doing quite a job with putting out some mighty tasty saisons

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2015
On tap at Novare Red, Portland, Maine. A yellow, unclear beer with a small white head leaving curtains. It’s quite fruity on the nose, with some grains. Citrusy and lightly flowery. It’s dry, medium bodied and with a high but nice carbonation level. There’s an appropriate bitterness in the flavor, it’s fruity and lightly grainy. Lasting finish. A thirst quenched. Easy drinkable. 150609
