Mankato Ceres Summer Ale

The Mankato Brewery is in North Mankato, Minnesota.  It is the first production brewery to be in that city since 1967. I'm getting to it late, but this is their 4.5% ABV American style wheat ale. Their bottles make glassware suggestions, and this suggests a weizen glass, so let's get to it.

The beer pours a hazy yellow golden in color. There is an inch of pure white foam, with a touch of whipped egg whites to it. The aroma is toasted wheat, lemon, light impression of spices. The taste follows the aromas, toasted wheat, tart lemon, with a surprisingly bitter finish, all combining for an overall effect of total refreshment. A tasty easy drinker perfect for the summer season.

New bottle and drinking good on July 25, 2015:
