Draft at the Lager House from notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, doughy, some sweetness, citrus and some stone fruit, grass, herbal notes, just not my thing.

Can that pours a mildly hazy yellow with white head. Someone deScription is wrong the can says pale ale the style above says wheat ale. There is nothing aggressively hopped about this beer. 35 ibu’s should tell you that. If it’s a wheat beer it has hints of diacytal in there which detracts from the flavor. So for once not sure what this is but its only decent to a point.

I’d probably call this an APA. It’s cloudy orange w/ a foamy head. Its nose is citrusy with maybe a bit of woody pine character. Tasting it, a dill-like note comes out, likely due to the Sorachi ace hops used. It’s relatively dry but medium bodied w/ creamy carbonation. It finishes w/ solid herbal bitterness and a lingering creamy sensation on the tongue. This is one of those beers I didn’t think much of at first but grew on me throughout the glass.

on tap @ Firehouse Grill / Cincinnati OH --- Clear golden amber color, bright white one-finger head, sheets of lace. Nice aroma of malt. Taste is sweet malt that adds carbonation and light hops on the swallow. A simple, but solid, full-bodied, summer quencher that also works well with food.
