4 oz pour on tap at the Greenbush Takeover Event at Haymarket (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich well hazed, offering a firm offwhite well hazed head. Decent lacing, some firm orange and amber glow with rich haze. Aromas are some mellow dry earthy hops, gentle grass, florals, touches of mellow lemon. Dry and earthy, lemons. Initial is medium bodied, a touch lighter offering a firm lemony and citrusy hopping up front, mellow as it trails off with some crisp pale malts, just a dab of sticky biscuits and faint toffee. Middle and bacfgkend starts to bitter this mother back up, lemons and dry florals come on stronger, drying up the palate. Backend offers a touch of lemon, mellow bready sweetness, some touches odf dryness. Solid Pale, a touch sweet and vague as far as character. Ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I have no access to this site as I write this and the labeling gives no indication of what type of ale this is. Fair enough. It pours an amber/orange body with some brown tones topped by a creamy eggshell head. The aroma that eventually seeps through the dense head has a caramel sweetness to it. There’s a light earthiness and slight traces of zest, too. The flavor has the addition of toffee and a soft fruitiness, ending on a mildly bitter note. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Thick orange-gold body, big off-white head. Mild peach, melon in the aroma. Has a hint of overcarbonation, maybe inching into infection...something I’ve experienced with this breweries bottles before. Almost has a dry brett finish. Not outright bad, just not that impressive either. Chewy, messy, undefined malts. I have little tolerance for breweries who sell infected beers, and the overall reflects this.
