2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden pour, thick, lacy head. Aroma grass and cat piss. Flavor is crisp grain with a surprisingly bitter hop presence. Kind of odd, but it does not work for me. I won’t need to try this one again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served in a Mikasa tulip.
Pours a slightly-hazy golden-apricot color with a two-finger white head and some pretty sticky lacing on the way down. Nice collar throughout. The nose is full of wheat and some phenols; there’s a bit of pepper and some light fruit. The flavor is full of wheat and pepper plus some pear and other fruits. A bit of a cidery character as well. A bit heavy on the pepper and phenols. Medium body with a dry finish. Good carbonation. Pretty good, but not something I’d likely go back to.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. The pour is a hazed gold copper, along with a small off white head. The aroma is a pleasant soft yeastiness, hay, earth, light citrus clove. Taste is hay, earth, and a pretty strong yeast clove, and then opens up with some floral citrus bitter. Very dry finish. Palate is medium bodied, unfiltered mouth feel, low carbonation level, and the dry flinty bitterish finish. Easy drinking beer, thanks for sending this my way Brandon.
