bhensonb (14964) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle corked & caged from Natomas BevMo. Orange tinged golden color with a two finger white head. Aromas of pale malt, citrus, light stone fruits, and mild yeast. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet malt, light fruit, mild spicey hop - grassy? Each mouthful starts a bit sweet, but it reduces towards moderate astringency or bitter. Perhaps tilted a bit towards a tripel. The alcohol is not noticeable, except in my brain. Not a waste of money - it’s a pretty good ale.
