3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A nice but unremarkable outing from Great Lakes. Doing a Brett is always a gamble, and this one seems to have landed very mildly. Slight Belgian yeast aroma (not much nose on this beer at all). Taste is earthy in much the same way some Nelson Hop beers are earthy, but not a lot of hop character. A mild and pleasant pale ale.

Tap at Bar Hop. Pours clear gold with no head. Aroma of Brett (funk, barnyard, earth), and some not-quite distinguishable hops. Crisp, lightly sweet and tart up front, medium-light body, firm but indistinct hop finish. Nice and light, decently balanced.

Enjoyed on tap at Bar Volo. Brett and complex, with a decent hoppiness. Golden colour, no head or lace. Mild malty sweet aroma. Taste is complex, smooth mouthfeel, very drinkable. Not as sweet or yeasty as similar offerings. Very moderately spicy. Very good. A tad musty.Worth seeking out.
