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!

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle from trade. Pours a light golden color with a medium off white head. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus, and spice. Taste is mellow and dry. Has a malty sweetness in the finish. Tasty but nothing special.

shrubber85 (7515) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle. Sweet peach, malt, and pine hops aroma. Hazy orange-yellow with small head. Flavor matches aroma with hops the dominant flavor. Nice easy drinking beer - an excellent blond ale.

12oz bottle Best if enjoyed by 08/20/07, thanks to shp555 and mystery swap 2.0. Clear golden straw with a one finger white head that fades to a creamy film. Smells like a fruity pilsener--grassy and slightly herbal hops, sweet grain and biscuits. Why the hell is this so bitter? Strong earthy bitterness followed by the more of the same fruitiness and a little bit of grassy hops. The bitter earthiness actually did nothing but dissipate after the initial taste, but the earthiness prevailed throughout. Low carbonation with a light to medium body. This ended up kinda sucky.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Thanks to Badgerben. Pours a nice golden color. Kinda funky footy like flavor. Kinda grainy funky flavor. Not very good.

PorterPounder (5447) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Atlanta, Ga. - Briarcliff Whole Foods - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour, decent white head. Grassy aroma, Some tangy hoppiness in the flavor with just a hint of peppery spiciness. Spritzy mouthfeel.

dchmela (2631) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Thanks to Ian for briinging this back from Ga. Pours a nice golden color and big white head. Light slightly hoppy aroma. Taste has a little hoppy bite that lingers a little into the aftertaste. Not as good as the IPA, but a nice change of pace.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle. This bottle traveled from Georgia to Virginia and then from Virginia to CA (thanks alexanderj). Aroma of yeast, some bready malt, citrus, and some spice. Kind of watery on the palate and dry in the finish (like a lager). Not much initial flavor, but the aftertaste is a compilation of the aromas.

Overall pretty good but a severely bitter aftertaste. May have just been the keg.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Looks like 420, with a clear gold color, little lacing, small head. Aroma is yeasty with some spice. Flavor is hoppy. Not very lively and very light. Not SW’s best.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Poured a very light golden color, with a small white head. Very straightforward, small amount of biscuit before finishing with a tiny dose of hops. A relatively dry finish overall. I enjoyed it with my dinner, nothing bad about it, just not much to it in general.
