We’re turning things deliciously upside down with an aggressively hopped cold-fermented brew that brings together the clean crisp finish of a lager with the hoppy aroma and character of an IPA. PROST! To turning convention on its head.

Bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear medium orange amber color, white head that drops to a cover, strips of lace. Aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is caramel malt and tropical citrus fruit that adds light fizz on the swallow, and drifts from there to a finish that gradually grows more bitter. Decent, easy-drinking, balanced brew.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Nice inviting amber body with medium head. Nose is nice and toasty, of hops aplenty and some spices. Taste is hops up front too and nice and sweet and floral. Sweet honey finish. Quite nicely done.

Very light, but full and crisp. Punchy with citrus zest and a good bit of hops, but not all that bitter. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Thanks iNBe. Nicely balanced I’ll say. Grassy herbal hops with biscuity malty sweetness. Serving: Bottle

Smell is awful and the taste is worse. Very malty and bitter. You need to be a real man to choke this abortion down. Pours clipper with a cream head. Sink pour at best

trapped (2015) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 27, 2015
Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Hazy bright orange with small off-white foamy head, lemon peel aroma, low carbonation, bitter lemon zest taste, medium bitter finish with a great deal of aftertaste. Smooth body but strong lemon flavor.

My first exposure to Widmer Brothers definitely wont be my last! Great aroma erupts from the bottle, with scents of apples and lemons. pours golden yellow. Has a white head, medium duration. flavors of citrus, herb and apples. Flavor starts mild sweet and finishes with just the right amount of bitterness.. Dry, creamy texture.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Light pine and citrus with some malty notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with light bread and light fruit notes. Average.

really just a bland beer. nothing special about the smell, no character, flavor is off, not really Pale, not really IPA. kind of a turd. bought my bottle in august 15 and the date on the bottle is december 14. probably not selling fast for a reason.
