A week in, and I'm kicking off? Y'all are slipping!
Great Lakes Grassroots Ale (Hale Ale)
Great Lakes Brewing Company
Pours a cloudy pale gold with a modest white head, light lacing. Aroma is lightly citrus and floral. Flavor is light, but surprisingly busy; elements of flowers, banana, bitter herbs, citrus tang, spice, and malt sweetness. Rarely have I had a beer that was so light and refreshing, yet so complex it's difficult to describe. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, much fuller than the color would suggest. After my first bottle from the sixer, last night, I wasn't sure. Now, at the end of the last bottle, I find like it more with every sip; just wish I could figure out why! Guess I'd better get another six, just to nail it down, ya know?

Fist noticeable item of this beer is that it a corked beer. Pours out golden and cloudy, forming a nice thick soapy head witch dissipates pretty quickly. The little bit of foam that is left leaves some great lacing in the glass. The carbonation is full of small bubbles that you do not see but feel on your tongue as you drink. On the nose I smell subtle hints of grain and earthy tones. Flavors of light floral and grain, nothing overpowering however. Over all, this is a good beer, not something I would drink everyday as I found it kind of bland. It would be a good beer to use as a base flavoring in a beer beard though. I would give it a 3 &1/2 out of 5
