COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Road trips are carefree adventures that usually take unexpected twists, like when we created this beer. It started out as a Pilsner recipe, but halfway through it blew a tire and Ale yeast was put on as the spare. The result was so good, it never could have been planned!

Floral, spicy, honey, and lemony aromas. Hazy yellow-orange with a fairly lasting, white head. Dry, fruity, and spicy. Light, zippy, and refreshing. A very decent harmonization of an American craft golden ale and a hoppy pilsner; the ale yeast adds a complex plethora of fruity aromas and flavors, balancing beautifully with the sharp snap of earthy, grassy, spicy hops.

12 oz. bottle from Harris Teeter Carrboro, best by July 22. Ar: Aroma is grassy, bread dough, and a bit of fruitiness. Ap: Pours a crystal clear light copper/gold with a small frothy head that leaves nice lace. T: Slightly sweet malty flavor up front, finish is nicely bittered with grass and lemony notes. P: Medium-thin body, medium carbonation. O: Gotta go against the grain a bit on this one. This is a nice spring/summer beer.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 From the tackle box. Pours opaque orange-ish yellow with white head and really thick line of lace resembling a 2D mountain range. Aroma is bready and grassy. Taste is equal malts and hops. Nice balance smooth finish. Oily mouthfeel. Decent.

12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of pale malts and light hops. Flavor the same, with nothing standing out. Flavor the same. Average to light texture. Boring beer.

I believe the idea that it was a pilsner recipe, the pale malts and spicy hops come through, but the beer lacks the bracing bitter and dry finish of a good pilsner. I feel that this just didn’t succeed.

12 oz. bottle. Pale gold pour, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is pilsener, with some hay, and very light resinous hops. Sweet flavor, with a bit of sharp bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a hard, crisp, and pretty lively mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer, for the style. Very understated and sessionable. Not my kind of beer.
