This is interesting but not really enjoyable. Tastes and feels more like tea than beer. Pretty thin and watery with weird vegetal and herb notes on top of a weak porter-like base. Meh

On tap at the brewery. No hops! That aspect was different and pretty good. The part I didn’t like was the herbal, floral taste. I have yet to have a good experience drinking beer with lavender.

Easiest way I could describe the taste was that of a light bodied scotch ale. Pours light brown with moderate head. Aroma slightly roasty and very malt forward. Obviously, no hops. It’s very well carbonated, finishes light and clean.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Floral aroma with a slight smoked note. Flavor is bitter, but not a hop type bitter, a bitter I have never experienced and I am not sure how to describe. It’s a sharp bitterness, but nondescript. Slightly sweet and slightly smoky. The body was very thin. Glad I tried it, but not sure I am going to rush back to it.
