Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in Mt Vernon, Washington. Pours a pale golden amber brew with a creamy white head that has some excellent retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of dark biscuity malt, some citrus zest and flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of caramel malt, burnt toast, biscuits, and light citrus zest. Finish is semi-dry with a mild citrus and lingering bitter aftertaste.

From a 22-ounce bottle--Poured a light and hazy golden body with a frothy thick white head. Mild hoppy nose with some bready malts. Mildly biscuity and piquant. Well balanced and highly quaffable.

Golden yellow in color with a thin head. The aroma was light struck and skunky. Has a skunky flavor and a slight metallic also. This was a very off beer and had a terrible aroma and flavor. I have had other beers from here and this is not the norm so I am going try this again when the batch changes. :(

22. Wow, what a mess--and itís a shame, too, because I donít think they meant for it to turn out this way. Pours a nice bright golden straw color with a thin fizzy white head that falls to a slim rim, leaving minimal lacing. Sour, funky nose...infected? Probably, but not so badly that itís certain. Nutty, corny, grain-husk-iness on the nose as well. Watery body, fizzy, nut-forward attack in a big way. Nuts and light resin hold through the mid-palate and well into the finish. Kinda messed up.

Grassy floral aroma. Lemony gold color with a frothy white head that went five fingers and more. Aroma of cotton candy as the glass approached the lips. Nearly medium bodied. No real carbonation bite, but there is a lot of carbonation - exploded in the mouth. Flavor begins nicely bitter, must be the chinook, but I donít get a lot of pine. More floral spice. Definitely some sweetness that resembles a Belgian ale. Really great stuff.
