Draft at the 2012 Michigan Brewer’s Guild Winter Beer Festival, Grand Rapids. Weird greenish body; sugary beer, mostly cotton candy; cloying and odd.

Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot of sweet grain and corn with a hint of caramel and light grass. Flavor is extremely sweet with corn, candied sugar, toffee and caramel and is too sweet for my liking.

Sampled at EBF on Saturday afternoon.
I wasn’t going to try this, but since mama is a big cotton candy fan I couldn’t pass it up. What I ended up with was a sweet syrupy "beer" that kind of tasted like cotton candy. One sip was enough, one and done.

A Sim rate (Extreme Beer Festival, Boston): I quite like the sweetness, but it’s a bit gimmicky. Tastes artificially fruity - like popping candy.
