Clear golden topped by a pillowy white head. Now that was an original statement. Doughy aroma. Light sweetness. Fairly nice balance but not nearly goaty enough. Seriously, though. Kind of ho-hum middle of the road.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma almost identical to apple juice. Taste is creamy with some pale malts and not too much else. Slightly skunky flavor. Aftertaste is not too great, leaves a weird creamy taste behind.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a 3 finger white clingy head. Aroma of cooked caramel. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is light caramel with light noble hop. Except the flavors are quite strong. It’s a bit more sweet than dry. Maybe it’s just bready. Really good tasting beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer poured a little cloudy with a nice white head. The smell is faint and of corn. A little sour and astringy. I might have gotten a bad bottle.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hay, raisin, and dates on the nose. Shimmering amber, headless. Medium bodied and dry. Creamy malt. Little carbonation. Alcohol is evident but blends well. Parsley finish. It has some nice qualities, but is fairly mediocre.
