On tap at City Beer in February 2014. (my first one from this Brewery)
Clear amber with a small head. Fresh and easy to drink, with hops, fruit and malt. Also with light notes of "earth" and cookies. An ok one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
So what surprised by this beer, as from the first whiffs and initial sip I’d have thought this to be a Vienna Lager? I’m now getting the heightened bitter notes as the beer warms but it still has a very strong corn aroma and taste. Some bread flavours and English hops really has me thinking this isn’t terribly American. It’s okay but I wouldn’t be drinking this in quantity.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out English hops, some metallic notes, and some biscuity notes. Flavour brings out dry biscuity notes, metallic notes, and light English hops. Pretty bland, but balanced enough. Not terribly exciting stuff, but it’s okay.

Crystal malt and English malt pop through beautifully. The hop character is mild yet delicious, and the overall taste is lager-ish bit with an ale finish. Pours a golden amber with an off-white head. Aroma of delicious hops and lager-like florals. Very well done.
