COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer that endured testing under the traditional brewery tour to see if it would make market, this beer is a light American Pale Ale style brew with lemony and grassy hop elements and mellow pale malts.

Sampled at Music City brewfest. Dry crisp grassy hops with a light yellow color. Decent summer drink with crisp hops and light pale malt body and flavor.

Rating from tour August 18th, 2009. Pale in color. Over-abundance of hops in the nose. Mostly floral, but not necessarily in a good way. Piercing and sweet. Flavor is mostly pale malts with relatively less bitterness to match the aroma. A novelty of which I think eventually turned into Chameleon Hop on Top.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2009
On draught at the Sprecher Brewing Company’s Rathskeller during the brewery tour, and at Old Chicago restaurants as Miracle Extra Pale Ale. Pours a clear golden pale colored brew with a creamy off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of mild Cascade and citrus zest, a hint of golden grain malt and some lemon. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation with flavors of citrus zest, and light golden grain malt, Finish is light, crisp with a short lived citrus zest and bitter aftertaste that quickly disappears. Idea lawnmower ale for the hopheads to enjoy on a 100+ degree F summer day.

Not a big fan of EPA and this one fit the bill. Old Chicago in Green Bay. Yellowish in color. Thin head. I like Sprecher overall, but this one reminded me of lemon or lime flavored Alka Seltzer A thirst quencher is the most positive thing I can say.

Sampled on tap during the Sprecher Tour (Glendale, WI). All the way back since February I’ve been storing this rating, waiting for someone to add the listing. They said this was in the market testing phase for likely distribution. Poured a transparent golden hue with big cakey white head that lasts and laces. Aromas throw grassy and earthy hops with a good portion lemony citrus and light cereal and pale malt sweetness to balance. Initial is similar, really letting the malts break way to the hops, which are straight lemon and grass (Lemongrass?) and a nice earthiness. I really liked this, albeit, it bordered on a little cloying with the extreme presence of lemon and grassy hops. Fresh cut grass, decent body, lemon stays on the palate. Not too bad. Cheers!
