2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 loose single at Binny’s. Finally getting to sample an Ale Syndicate brew. This pours a pale lager color under a meringue head. Nose in the glass does not offer much in the way of hops, just a light malty beer nose, but not sugary like the pale lager it resembles. I finally get a nose of one of the 3C’s when I tip it to drink, and there is a light mouthfeel with a mellow dose of hops. It almost comes across as a bit watery, bit it goes down pretty quickly, and leaves a sizable piece of its foam behind. A decent lighter beer with its own ideas for how hoppy to be.

Kinda has a funk to it, want to say it is in the hops. Very light. Leaves an odd, soapy aftertaste. Ehhh....

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fairly hazy golden with a large, white head. The aroma has a strong oat quality, some sweetness, and a hint of hops. The flavor is a bit strange and has a lot of spice to it. Kinda reminds me of a pumpkin beer. Not much in the way of hops, unless that"s where the spice comes from. Not very good.
