Tap at Great Divide - was told this was made from the second runnings of Hercules and sits at around 3.5 abv - they may as well call this Hercules Bland - practically nothing happening here - perhaps I am spoiled, having tried the HOTD little dog beers, and having a world class dark mild made in town (Hogshead) - this just tastes hollow - some dry, flavorless yeast - light crackery malt - slight bitterness - no flaws, just extremely boring.

On tap at Great Divide from their pilot system. Pour is clear golden with a long-lasting, bright white head. Raw hops, wet dog, bread, grass, and dough in the aroma. Taste is grass, ligh weed, biscuit, malt, light phenols, and bread with a light bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad, but nothing really special.

On tap at the brewery for the pilot system tap takeover. I pretty much felt the same about this as I did Baby Yeti, why bother? It smells good and hoppy like Hercules but then you taste it and its so watered down that you are left with a bit of disappointment. That is in fact a perfect way to describe the flavor of this beer: bitter disappointment. I like brewers going for more session beers but you really need the flavor to match otherwise what is the point? Stone/Ballast Point/Kelsey McNair San Diego Session, Lagunitas Daytime IPA and Alpine Tuatara are good examples of low alcohol hoppy beers, this is not.
