2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was anticipating something so great with this beer. I could not believe how mediocre this stuff actually was. Remarkably bland and light, with no real body. Very thin and bitter aftertaste with a total absence of any malt backbone. Boring, and uninspired. I have heard so much about this local brewer, and this was their first I have tried. I’m really not in a hurry, now, to try something else. I am simply baffled by the great ratings here.

Draft at Magnolia, 7/5/15
Clear golden color with small head and minimal lace. Mostly bready on the aroma and flavor with some spice and floral notes as well. Medium bodied, with a solid drinkability and a mid-dry finish. Not quite as clean as it could be.

This one started out nicely, but really started giving off a bit of butteriness on the finish. Not sure what happened here, but definitely had some good things going for it. Would like to try it again in case I got a funky keg pour.

Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of slight creamed corn and pilsner malt. Taste is moderately bitter and grainy. Body is medium and carbonation high. Overall a fair pilsner but the nose is slightly problematic.
