A- Pours a hazy golden color. One finger white head that shows good retention. Some spotty streaking lacing that shows up on the glass.

S- Aroma was a little faint but nothing too underwhelming. Wheaty notes blend with some yeasty aromas. Light lemony scents as well. Like I said nothing over the top but nothing underwhelming as well.

T- Follows the nose dead on. Pretty good and nothing fancy or lack there of. A easy drinking beer that shows no real blandness.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation was good for the style. Yeasty notes left on the palate with some lemon flavors in the aftertaste. Light drying on the palate from alcohol. Flavors blend well with each other.


  1. Sounds like good stuff. Too bad I have no idea how to brew beer.

  2. What country is it from? Germany I presume?

  3. I love beer, can we do one on a pumpkin beer since it is the season... I love shipyard pumpkin ale its one of the best that ive found

  4. I believe I have sampled this in the past, and the memories were fond.

  5. No not a German brewed beer. From Portland Or.
