3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Washington Square Bar and Grill, White Bear Lake, MN. Pint served a chill hazed golden hue, with a modest, white, foamy head and ring of spotty lacing. The nose was light grain, malt, a hint of lemon zest and light floral/grassy hops. Ditto on the flavor with just a hint of malt sweetness dominated by a modest bitterness and dry, light peppery finish. Light, clean, and very sessionable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Happy Gnome in St Paul, MN. Pours a golden grain malty brew with a decent white head that slowly dissipates to a thin creamy white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some white bread, sourdough bread dough, floral hops and a touch of alcohol. Taste is semi-sweet with flavors of golden grain malt, some bread dough and honey. Finish is semi-sweet, malty aftertaste with a French bread aftertaste that slowly disappears.
