On tap at the Minneapolis location. Pours a translucent golden with some orange notes and a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet malty cereal grains, light citrus, floral and lightly toasty. Flavor was the same sweet malty cereal grains, some citrus notes and light alcohol.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a lightly hazed amber gold beneath a nice head of sudsy cream colored foam. A gentle pour provides half an inch of foam. A more rugged pour provides close to two inches of foam. In any event, this beer as poured provides a decent head of foam with nice head retention and lacing. The aroma provides a nice honey-sweetened malt, on the mild side, with a hint of grain.
Sweet and lightly tart at the same time, with a crisp clean lagered beer flavor. Grain is noticeable and appreciated. There are noble hops in the finish that blend into a sweet/tart/lightly spiced aftertaste.
