3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is an interesting wet hay and grain in a barn mixture.
The taste is quite grainy, a solid sweet note running through it all. Some apples and a little orange.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
It’s a little too sweet for me, interesting though.

Looks can be deceiving, nothing special on the pour, but the taste is just sweet enough.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Transfer from BA review on 2-28-12 -
Poured from bomber into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a huge billowing white head. The head fades to give a very nice level of lacing
Smell – Sweet aromas of lighter fruit and a bit of citrus meet the nose. They are really quite soothing aromas. These sweeter aromas then mix in with a bit of bready and yeasty aromas which complement the sweet nicely and round out the smell quite nicely.
Taste – Breadiness of malt mixed with sweet caramel and fruit are quite heavy upfront. These lighten a bit as the taste moves on and bitter up ever so slightly. There is also a slight yeasty flavor that also develops with the bitter toward the middle of the taste. Toward the end, some alcohol taste comes into play, rounding out the taste experience and warming the mouth and body in a very nice way.
Mouthfeel – The very creamy body coupled to the lower level of carbonation allow it to cling to and absorb into the tongue leaving a very warm and soothing feeling in the mouth.
Overall – I quite enjoyed this beer. It is a bit on the sweeter side with nice sweet aromas and a very nice mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and rather relaxing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 8C. Gold with a white head that never quite disappears. Aroma of mild and grainy with some honey and floral notes. Sweet and grainy, some apricots. Gently leans towards dry. Modest bitterness, vague floral notes linger. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Interesting - strikes me as maybe a tad cheap on the ingredient side but rather well put together.

Reviewed from notes: had this while in NOLA last year on draft. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Bread, a bit of sweetness, and come light floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a cereal note, probably due to the 2-row malt. Not bad.

Bottle pour. Clear golden in color. Large foamy head. Crisp hoppy aroma. Clean initially, but a very sharp bitter aftertaste.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Grains, hay.
A- Orange color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Corn, grains, slightly sweet, malty, subtle bitterness.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.
O- For being 8%, the alcohol isn’t noticeable. It really just tastes like an average lager. A little on the sweeter side, but far from being anything to get excited about.
