COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
5 Grass is a refreshing yet substantial beer that is pale in color and nicely hoppy. With this beer, we wanted to invoke the brisk, clean aroma of the desert. The recipe makes use of three unique hop varieties as well as some carefully chosen herbs and spices - juniper, sage, and Tasmanian pepperberry, among others - to give a beautiful outdoorsy scent. With it’s smooth clean malt flavors and a unique, complex nose, 5 Grass is like a refreshing walk in the wide open spaces.

In Aztec mythology, 5 Grass was the symbol of life. In this worldview, nature is not inanimate, but is filled with life. Every bug, every flower, every plant is alive and filled with a spirit; each relies on everything around it to sustain and create a living world. 5 Grass invites us to reflect that we are a part of this web of life and that there are forces in nature that can intervene in our lives, which we are best served by knowing and respecting. By knowing nature, we come to know ourselves

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. Poured a rich amber with minimal carbonation and a frothy, off-white head. Spiced grass aroma. Not enough hops for the "Hoppy Ale" on the label. Had an unusual floral, grassy taste. Hard to describe, but I’m not a fan of this beer.

Was expecting a little more hop to this one, considering the name. Pours a nice clear amber color. Spices really take the forefront here. Getting some savory ginger type notes. Some pepper two. A little metallic note as well. Tasty, just mis-named for me.

Pour on tap, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, hints of grass, herbal notes, touch of floral character into a bit of yeast, spice. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, some herbal and floral notes into hint of hoppy spice, finishing relatively dry, slightly bitter.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 At Rockwell’s. Slightly cloudy amber colored beer. Interesting herbed and spiced. Piney and peppery with a solid but appropriate amount of hops. Nice. Serving: Tap

Draft. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop, and over the top herbal aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium herbal bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Not my style.

Bottle at Trattoria 10 in Chicago....pretty hip place for a craft beer. Anyway, it was sort of a disappointment. Very mild hop nose and initial taste....some interesting tastes...guess that’s the Tasmanian pepperberry....but overall without a major APA nose or taste...

Teh spices make it almost smoky and it didn’t do it for me on a hot summer day.

Smells are creamy and smooth, almost can’t describe it. Yes, from the first taste I say its creamy too! One of the more really creamy beers I’ve had for a while. Good creamy overall beer experience, yes creamy. Weirdly creamy, but interesting and fun. Liked this.
