Very recent from Capones. This was better long when it warmed to room temperature and could sell the hops.

Can. Generally, this brewer has a positive vibe in the region, and my limited exposure has all been positive. But this was a bit of a disappointment. The beer is light amber as you’d expect with a toss-n-tumble topping. Overall I found this quite woody and outdoorsy, vice citric, generally a drinkable quaff ... but the finish was almost soapy, and this detergent factor - although subtle - wouldn’t leave me.

Can at Frank’s. Pours an amber body with white lacing. Aroma is pretty bland - lots of malt, vague bitter hops. Mouthfeel is medium to light with ntoes of sweet caramel malt, light metallic character, spice and vague bitter hops.
