3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Malted Barley - Westerly, RI. Grainy, fresh aroma. Flavors are clean and light. There’s a slightly harsh, coarse and somewhat chem-y quality finish that could be hops or something else. Otherwise, I think this is a delightfully fresh, light, flavorful, and drinkable example of the style. Will look forward to being able to have this on tap at most places.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Doherty’s, 3/19/16.
Clear, light, brassy-yellow body shows light carbonation and a white head atop with moderate to low retention. Crystal clear.
Cereal grains in the nose combined with soft herbal notes, hard water and a bit of rougher huskiness. Nothing flawed or dirty, but not a ton that’s overly compelling either.
In the mouth it’s very dry, with cereal chracter, hay, biscuit and cracker. Very low on the hop character with just a touch of floral/herbal character as an afterthought. Average carbonation doesn’t excite, but isn’t exactly fizzy either. No flaws, or alcohol. It goes down fine, though the texture could be softer and I doubt it would kill them to add more hops to this.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from MrBarleywine, thanks for the opportunity!
Slightly hazy light golden color, light amount of floaties, smallish bubbly white head slowly dissipates. Aroma is sweet sugary maltiness mostly with light sweet orange fruitiness and little to no hop. The flavor is sugary sweet maltiness with hints of fruit and little to no hop flavor or bitterness. The only thing cutting through the massive sweetness of this beer is the carbonic acid form the carbonation. This is a one and done beer.
