MrTipple (3587) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Grain and cereal malts, light citrus fruits. Hazy, pale gold, small, frothy, white head. Light bitter. Sweet grain malts coming up quickly, bread, caramel, soft carbonation, bitterness returns in the average long, slightly dry finish, some citrus fruits again. Decent California Common, but nothing too crazy. Keg at the brewpub, Decorah, IA.

minutemat (4312) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2016
Can from Beer Gonzo. Pours a misty gold, medium receding white head. Nice sweet aroma. Taste is smooth, sweet, reminiscent of a sweet Bavarian helles. Sweet fruity notes emerge more as it warms. Verges towards overly sweet, but just about remains in the moreish, drinkably flavoursome camp. I liked this.
