2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a muddy orange/brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that lasted about a half minute, some moderate light sticky lacing graced the sides of the chalice and then gently slid after about two minutes.
The smell had a combination of coriander, malts, lemon and wheat up front, light citrus begins come out as it warms.
The taste had all of the previously mentioned flavors with a sort of buttery quality to it, bland malty aftertaste, dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, semi-sessionable, smooth all around, appropriately carbonated.
Overall, this is a good example of this style, but still not completely sold on this style, and this actually slightly reminds me of a Palm, unsure if I would have this again.

some reasonable hop bitterness and some backing malt flavor, along with a hint of a celery note. a bit like a british pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a medium copper-amber with a small head the fizzles down. The aroma has a fine floral hop note with the Belgian yeasts and grapefruit. The body is medium. The taste starts slightly sweet and malty and then there is a powerful hop note that coats the back of my throat and lingers.

Cody Brewing redeemed themselves with this beer. I was disappointed with everything else of theirs I’ve had, but this was one decent. A sweet enticing aroma. The malt blend is good and the 40 IBU help balance everything. Definitely get the Belgian yeast feel/scent in this beer.
