Draft. Poured a clear golden color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral sweet grain aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Sun King Takeover (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich straw golden hue, near transparent with lively carbonation. A frothy whitish head atop wit good lacing, dies to a firm clinging film. Aromas are gentle bready and dry malts, with some Pils elements, gentle dryness, mellow warm bread, touches of dry earthy hops. Initial is lighter end of the spectrum as far as body, offering gentle apple and bready malts, some cereal grains, touches of earth grassy hops, gentle mellow yeast spice. A mellow front end leads into a sweeter tangy fruit middle, with apple, gentle pear, perhaps that is the popcorn. Finish is a bit more dry and earth, a kiss of vegetal qualities, mellow earthy hops. A more fruit slant on a Pils which seemed a bit odd.. It’s ok, but as far as style, I was a bit surprised.
