TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2008
On tap at Town Hall. Pours a mostly translucent golden with a medium creamy white head that left lacing. Aroma of malty sweetness, orange zest, grassy, floral, ginger and tea. Flavor was a mix of the same. The hops were giving off some interesting spicy notes...ginger and a few other ingredients used in Chinese food.

decaturstevo (6138) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2007
On tap RBSG. A clean golden pour wth a thick white lacing and light head. A flavor that is malty but changes to a bit of a papery flavor and a tad of hop bitter at the finish. An aroma of light malt, corn. Nothing bad on the nose just not much there. The palate was all you could expect from the style. It was crisp and clean but a tad fizzy. Very good offering for the style.
