First, I am SHOCKED by the low reviews on this fantastic beer, you hopheads need to learn how to appreciate a full-flavored, refreshing low alcohol brew! Growler from the brewpub pours hazy brownish-amber with little head and no lacing, little retention. Aroms is fresh baked bread, biscuit, caramel, little to no hop aroma. Taste pure bread with hints of caramel and earthy hops. Body is medium with low carbonation and a dryish finish. Super refreshing after the bike ride (in 90 degree Chicago heat I must add) I took to procure this delicacy.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had light fruit, sweet grain and a bit of underlying honey and biscuit. Flavor was a bit sweeter with sweet grains and honey with a bit of light fruit in the finish. satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2010
4% draft at brewpub. aroma is light hopping and pleasant malt note that moves (to no dismay) to near kibble. appearance is mahogany, lightly burnt pour with very thin and quickly receding film. flavor is well balanced kibble like malt, light crunch and tinges of near pine. lively mouthfeel despite nearly nil head, carb is active beneath.

Draft at Piece. Pours an attractive gals, mostly clear with sticky head. Nose is a touch grainy and grassy hops. On tast, very prominent grape note that could possibly be Nelson sauvin hops. Also more of the grassy notes and a bit of astringency as well. Solid malt back-bone and shows good brewing technique. Solid ordinary bitter. austinpowers (2828) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Although mild and fairly thin, there's a nice hop aroma here. Pretty drinkable, but not delicious or innovative.

Draft and the pub. Light hops and malt on the nose - nothing overpowering. Thin head, light copper color. Flavor is a well balanced bitter, smooth and easy to drink. Decent. Glad to see them making different beers again. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2011
[Tap] Pours a dark shade of gold with a lasting cap of white foam on top. Good looking lacing. Aroma of crisp floral hops and mild grass. The taste is a bit grainy. Grassy hops, toffee, biscuits and dinner rolls in the flavor. Nice balance. Average carbonation and mouthfeel. Very sessionable and mild. A good bitter.

Mahogany with thin head. Aroma of mild hops and malt. Taste sweet malt, floral hops honey. Thin body mild carb. Overall meh. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a glowing orange amber hue, a nice haze, frothy offwhite decent head laces ok, a larger ring clings on. Aromas are bread dough, some toasty malts, florals and grassy hops with a touch of lemon rind. Mellow orange fruit, touches of toast and biscuits. Initial is lighter bodied with orange and some buttery biscuits, toast, bread, and mellow oranges. Touches of florals and orange fruit, some sweet grains and cereal. Mellow and light, easily drinkable but could use a dash more in the hop department. A bit mellow, buttery quality gets a bit ditracting to me. Still an ok lower ABV bitter for sessioning. Oranges. A bit dissappointing with the buttery aspect, but a sessioner that has a good vibe at only 4 percent. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013
7/20/2011: Piece Bellend Bitter... Aroma: Butterscotch and earthy hops. Appearance: Hazy, bright coppery-orange color. Flavor: Tastes a bit watery; light brown sugar and a touch of butterscotch; earthy-herbal bitterness that is mild to moderate in strength overall; very dry; very, very weak roastiness. Palate: Medium body; average mouthfeel, feel "fuzzy." Overall: WEAK; lacks something; I don’t like the butteriness.
Draught (4.0% ABV) at Piece in Chicago, IL. Rating #18 for this beer.
