2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Oh boy opened this one up, poured a darker yellowish color with aromas of light wheat, smoked sausage, and some earth. Thought this was going to be good, first sip tasted like old hot dog water, second sip was older hot dog water, not good for me, disappointed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR. Pours a lightly hazed golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grainy pale malts with some wheat, a moderate smokiness, some plastic phenols, a touch of bread, and a light wood. Flavor is similar. Grainy pale malts with a light wheat, some dry smoke, a light wood, and a touch of peat up front. Light breadiness in the middle with some yeast spice before this finishes dry and woody with a moderate bitterness as well as a hint of phenol and a light grainy wheat. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a crisp, refreshing, moderate carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer. I’m dumb to the style, but it seems like a well made example of a style without a lot of flair. Grainy malts with no sweetness and some wheat, dry wood, and some smoke. Nothing special, but not bad.
