Tap @ Shorts Iowa City. Pours a hazy light yellow appearance with a white head. Lemon zesty, juicy, pineapple, a bit tangy, sweet malty aroma. Light cracker bready, sweet malty, herbal hoppy, bright lemon flavor. Soft and easyddrinking. Kind of a unique steam beer.

Draft pour at GTMW 2013. Full-on palate fatigue by the time I got to this. Pours a yellow-gold with a small white head. Notes of bready, doughy malts, dry grains, straw, grass, a hint of lemon and tea. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. So nice for the style. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub in Decorah, Iowa. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of white bready malt, grassy hops and a hint of hard fruit. Taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of white bread dough, grassy hops and a hint of citrus. Finish is semi-dry, a sharp bitterness at first and then a crisp and clean cut aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Shorts in IC. Body is bright gold with a white head. The nose is grainy with a little bit of sweet apple. There is also some floral quality here. The taste is rich with some bread crust and a little bit of sweet granola. There is also a hint of bolied potatoes. This is very good for a California Common.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft on tap at The Nova (Hudson, WI). Badass. Pours a crisp hazy golden pour, some mellow haze, lively carbonation, and gentle frothy offwhite head atop that dies to a film, laces small. Good mellow glow of orange, gold, and straw with a mellow haze. Aromas are gentle citrus, grassy hops, orange and lemon and rind. Touches of straw, bready malts, and dough. Crisp maltiness, lively citrus and mellow hoppy presence. A bit of yeast, crisp and inviting. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a good variety of flavors show grainy malts, gentle dough. Some mellow grassy and earthy hops grow, lemon bites a bit, touch of orange rind. Melllow spice, yeast, and gentle straw. Grainy, the middle gives way a bit. Dry and a bit spicy as we move into the back. This never gets all that sweet, quite drinkable. Some richer citrus elements unfold on the palate, good lingering bready malts, grain, straw, and gentle spiciness hits the palate. Pretty damn nice, a good amount of spiciness, earthy hops, gentle yeast really linger on into the backend. Crisp and lighter body, but pretty damn flavorful for me. It’s the simplest things that often work the best. Nice job.
