At the Minoh brewery taproom, draft. It poured your an orange gold with a fluffy white head. A hoppy bitter lager which was really smooth and easy to drink. I liked it better than their pale ale. Well done!

amber color. Clean, lightly fruity, slightly metallic nose. Light fruity body, very clean decent bitterness and going towards a bock. Really interesting with fairly aggressive bitterness. I would like to see a 6.5 or 7% verison of this beer, but regardless excellent

Draught at Tenma. Nice citrus hop nose with crackery pilsner malts. Sweet malt flavor is very well balanced by the cascade hops. Nice citrus, good bitterness. Crisp and delicious. Very well done.
