COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde in color, this mild ale is brewed with a blend of four malts to impart a subtle, malt bouquet. A smaller than normal hop addition is made in the beer to keep the flavor mild and clean.

Draft @ BBF - Nice yeasty components that meld really well the fruity citrus bitterness. Not extremely exciting, but extremely drinkable.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - SEP 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 This is a decent ale that is drinkable and pretty good with simple food, but hardly great. Its flavour is not very complex or deep, being mostly light grain with light hints of citrus and pine, its balance is just a tad off to the bitter side, and it is overall not exciting. It is, however, drinkable.

Sampled at Russian River in mid-June 2007. Clear golden with a white head. Grain, noble hops and a hint of pretzel in the nose. Flavor has notes of pale grain, slight huskiness, hay, light lemon and saaz hops (I think). Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Nothing exciting but a pleasant drinkin’ beer.
