Not bad with a good crisp Batley note. I suspect it won’t get much better than this at the brewery taster flight. Tap.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on draft at the Virginia Beach brewpub this beer poured a very pale yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was tangy, sweetish and a bit grainy with not a whole lot going on. The flavor was tangy and a bit grainy with a touch of bitterness and hints of brad and corn. Short tangy grainy and bready finish. Light body. Unimpressive.
