theisti (4179) - Kansas, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Pils type glass draft (~ 20 oz) at the Columbus Brewing bar in the Columbus airport. The pour is a lightly hazed golden with a small white head. The aroma is soft floral and citrus fruit hop, along with grainy malt. The taste is somewhat muted hop up front, floral, resin, earth, then the grainy biscuit malt carries the finish, which is dry and clean. The palate is light to medium bodied, with soft carbonation. Nice mineral element in the back as well. Easy drinker.

3.5
nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2012
12oz bottle. Better than I expected straight up off the bat, well hopped, nice grapefruit cascade feel. Unfiltered orange-brown, greyed..murky. Thin, steady off-white head. Earthy and full bodied, pretty rich for a beer of 5.3%. Soapy and astringent after awhile, would really benefit from filtration...too heavy and yeasty to really session. Certainly a decent offering.

3.3
kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2012
12oz Bottle. Appearance is slightly hazy copper color with medium off-white head. Aroma is subdued with notes of fruit, spice, and spruce. Taste is weighted on the hops with flavors of citrus and fruit with only a mild, nutty, malty fullness coming through toward the finish. Palate is medium bodied, avenger texture and carbonation, slightly astringent and a long, dry finish.
