COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal Release Series. Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. Its a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

Like many Ninkasi beers, this is an ale more than a specific style, though we put it in the Northwest Pale category. A light toasted malt flavor is more reminiscent of a British Pale, but the hops are bright and very Northwest. Flavorful and easy to drink!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish side of amber, fine sediment abounds, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing, very little carbonation.   Soft musty malt nose, very faint hop and sweetened citrus zest.   Pale hop bitterness on the tongue, a little mealy and soily, minor.   Otherwise malty with a slight astringent citrus zest.   Not as sweet as the nose suggests.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is a little stale.   Lingering wet cardboard.   Could stand to be brighter.   Not bad, but rather dull.
