I gave this beer a try while we were at Memphis Taproom, waiting for our takeout order. They have a Korean fried chicken sandwich that is absolutely amazing. If you’re ever in the area, definitely give it a shot.

Random: The coconut club at Memphis Taproom is also amazing and one of my favorite sandwiches.
The beer poured with a huge three finger, pure white head. The head dissipated slowly and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and bright yellow. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was overly mild. It had some grass and citrus with white bread. The taste started with some grainy sweetness. It transitioned into grapefruit and hops. There was some caramel as well. The body was very light with lots of carbonation. It had a quick finish with grainy sweetness. This beer was alright, but nothing earth shattering.
