Bottle from Party Town, KY. Poured hazy amber color with a huge frothy white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Average sweet citrus aroma. Light to medium body. Moderate spicy sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of short duration. Very refreshing.

Purchased at Michael’s Deli sometime last year. BB Date of April, 2005...oh, brother. Here we go again. Appears a hazy light gold with a 1 finger, dense white head of fluff. Lots of scattered lace is left around the glass. Smell is of yeasty bread, sugary citrus, vanilla, candy orange slices, along with an earthiness that seems to fit well. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a decent mix of the yeasty, sugary notes that are enjoyable. Moutheel is light medium bodied, balanced, sweet up front, light yeastiness with vanilla cream mixed over the tongue leading to a dry finish that’s very pleasant.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy pale straw color, with a one finger head that settles quickly to a thin cap and ring and leaves behind some thin lacing. Smell; yeasty with strong floral notes, and some traces of pepper. There’s some sweet fruits that I can’t quite place along with a wheat prsence. Taste; very fruity up front, with oranges and pears, and floral. There’s a solid malty biscuity flavor, and candied sugar as well as a strong wheat presence, and finishes with a pleasant peppery spiciness. While this isn’t a big in your face knid of beer, I found myself really enjoying this understated/sublte brew. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, and very refreshing.
