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!

Yellow/gold pour that is a bit hazy. An inch + of white foamy head leaving webbed lacing. Pils nose that is sweet malt, grain and floral hops with a bit of funk. Fairly smooth mouth, lt/med body and appropriate crispness. There is a maltiness to Road Trip, but this more about floral/citrus hops. Not a big pilsner fan, but I liked this - probably because it isnít really a pils. Great after work brew.

Bottle from Warehouse Wine in Spring Hill. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is pale malt, some light caramel, some pepper, and some yeast with hints of grass and hay. Flavor is similar- pale malt, some hay, some grassy hops, and some dry and peppery yeast toward the finish. Easy-drinking and light in body, but the yeast really dries it out at the end.

a decent blond i guess, though it seems closer to a pale. not very interesting honestly.

ellolovey (427) - Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden straw color with a thin white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of grass, lemon, and citrus. Light watered down body. Taste a bit metallic, with grass, lemon, and citrus. Pale malts. Bitter dry finish. One road trip I hope I never have to take.

This pours a yellow-gold color with a good thick white head. The aroma is herbal and grassy, with bready notes, and a bit of citrus. The flavor doesnít offer any surprises; bready, grassy, and a touch citrusy, with a dry, bitter finish. The body is slick, a touch sweet, and fuller than expected, and is the only place where I can see the ale influence. This beer is good, but because of this isnít as refreshing as Iíd like. Otherwise this comes across as a solid Pilsner, which certainly is fine with me.

hman43 (224) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2013
The beer has a citrus smell with a hint of lemon. The head is not very strong. It has a golden color. Initially the taste is quality, but the aftertaste in not that pleasant.

jbruner (1982) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden yellow on tap with thin filmy head that sticks lightly. Aroma is bready grains and corn malt, taste follows. Bubbly and light on the tongue, easy to drink but not sure I will be drinking much of it, not for me.
