pours a clear golden color with a thick fluffy white head. the aroma is sweet malts and sugar and don’t really pick up any hops. the taste is sweet up front with a mild hop kick in it but the aftertaste is where this beer went south. the aftertaste is sorta like a rotten fruit. this was my first beer by this brewery and i wasn’t overly impressed.

Aroma is all malts. Taste is very sweet and just enough character. Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Dimpled mug. Notes of malts and hay, sorta sweet. Light brown, minimal head, very little lacing. Taste is sweet, malts, gets foamy in your mouth. Pretty meh beer.

Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks John! It poured a clear golden amber colour with deep, sudsy white foam and lots of lace. Nice appearance, but bland aromas and flavours. Soft malt-sweetness, hint of caramel, but almost no trace of hops, seemed a bit mushy and mass-produced. Light body, strong carbonation, sticky mouthfeel, too sweet aftertaste.

Golden copper with a small white head. Medium bitterness, malty. Overall drinkable but not one I would go out of my way to get.
