Very pale clear yellow, almost no color at all, but a decent head. Light grassy. Light herbal/spice. Touch of fruitiness. Some sweetness. Extremely easy drinking light body. Crisp. Refreshing. Watery. Beasts the hell out of a macro.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a light golden hue with medium head and lacing. Aroma was a mix of hops (citrus/pine) and malts. Taste was of a typical pilsner - highlights of hops with citrus/pine throughout with a slightly malty backbone. Palate was OK. Overall, this seemed almost like a semi-light pilsner given the extra light color appearance and slight thinness. It still had a decent taste though.

Ultra light yellow with a slowly fading mammoth pillowy white crown. Aroma is noble and grassy with boring saaz hops and a touch of bready malt. Taste is mildly sweet with grassy and noble hops and bland malt.

12 ounce bottle
Picked up relatively fresh at Steve’s in Madison I cracked this open about a week after the Great Taste of the Midwest. Still bright and enjoyable it was a great relaxing beer after a long day. Pearl Street is a brewery worth checking out if you happen to run across their beers on the shelf.
Aroma / Appearance - A transparent golden body pours ambitiously resulting in a huge pillowy head. Wheaty and nutty the noble hops linger in the air. The blend of lemon crisps and waxy floors is like walking through a quiet cafeteria after hours.
Flavor / Palate - The fluid mouthfeel remains active from start to finish. Lemon zest, toasted whole wheat bread, and a mild bitterness are the main components of a solid release. There might be better beers out there but if you like supporting local breweries or just getting away from the big names this one is worth trying once.

12oz bottle from Sonoma Cellars Delevan. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is bready, yeasty, some generic fruitiness. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, fruity, just a touch of bitter hops, with a very light bitter finish. Just ok.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow color with a thin, creamy head that leaves a fair bit of lacing. Faint grainy aroma. Taste was of sweet grains, pale malts, and some grassy hops. Light bodied and overly carbonated. Decent enough on a hot summer day I suppose.
