4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The idea of session beers as a whole is something that I find to be silly and limiting. That, because there exists a menagerie of beers that are full bodied, flavorful, and low abv. The category, "Session Beers," limits low abv beers, because a lot of people think that low gravity means weak bodied, watery beers. This is simply not the case. Band of Brothers is one that leads the way in proving beer lovers wrong about reasonably alcoholic beers. It is very hoppy (seemingly piny American hops), with a bready malt character, but light in the finish, quickly fading off the palate. An excellent brew that is very approachable for both beer lovers and those that are new to beer in general.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice blond beer with a small white head. Hoppy aroma and taste. A bit citric but also herbal hop flavors noticeable. A very rich tasting beer concidering the low alcohol content.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Lord Hobo. Tulip glass is a clear gold on the very poor lighting in this dank ass bar. Nose is pale malt and traces of Belgian yeast. Flavor is an intense amount of bitter hops with a strong Earthy herbal note. Intact the bitterness and Earthy hop IS impressive for such a low ABV brew BUT... It actually too harsh. I will not revisit this.
