1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared by drowland, super excited to try this one, pours a hazy gold with no head at all, the aroma is just horrible, dirty garbage water comes to mind at first, then maybe throw a dirty diaper in there as well, flavor isn’t much better as well, spices kind of mix in with the light malt and dirty dish water flavor, no thanks.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12/24/14. 12oz bottle from the Milan Hy Vee. Hazy, almost creamy, orange pour under a decent khaki head with mild lacing. Doesn’t look bad. A myriad of aromas hit my nose... first I get the expected doughiness, a pinch of earthiness and grass, but then there’s an acidity and vegetal character that reminds me of ketchup. The flavor is much the same, doughy, reminds me of raw pizza dough, grassy, ketchup, vegetal, green. Blech.

Aroma is citrus, bread and a hint of hops. The flavor is citrus, complex malts, bread, fruit and a mildly bitter/dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap in the brewery’s tap room, and dispensed to a house pint glass, showing a bright & clear, deeper golden color than the Heavenly’s, but with less presence to a head that was modest, soft white, and quickly diminishing, and lacing that was light and spotty. A distinct lager scent was present in the aroma, with light yeast, a hint of hop spiciness, and a touch of Pils malt corniness. The taste started with a subtle sweetness, was light to medium in body, and well carbonated to successfully propel the smooth malt and the moderate, lightly lingering, hop bitterness into a finish that was crisp & clean. Fuller in body & character than the Heavenly, but just as sessionable!
