Clear sparkling gold, creamy white head. Soft buttery floral nose that’s intertwined with lighter notes of grainy biscuit, nutty earth, and caramel coated cereal. Flavor is toasted grains throughout with more hints of earth and nutty caramel. As it warmed, soft peppery hop tones play out for almost perfect balance. Light bodied, soft spritzy carbonation, dry, lightly bittersweet finish. Much love on this. A well done take on the style...

On tap at Trap Rock. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a medium sized white head. Soft hay and a touch of sweetness and a bit of fruit. Nice and light, gently sweet. Well balanced and easy drinking.

On tap, this pours with a foamy head and excellent lacing. Aroma is mostly malty and nothing extremely noteworthy. However, there is a crisp and enjoyable flavor that lasts the entire way down the glass. Can we say session?

Gold pour with a creamy white head and lace. Aroma is almost wheat like. Sweet malt flavor with a back side funk that is ok. Medium bodied but a bit foamy. A drinkable beer.

This was a little more solid and malty than the light but really not as much as it could have been. Not as hoppy as it could have been either. Fair Helles

Draft sample. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate grassy hop and soft malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
