On tap at prefunk... This is one of The most average and inoffensive brews ever... Just so very average. Nose is only mildy malty.. some background honey essence .. a mild amount earthiness.. Flavor is like a mild American Amber with a touch more sweetness... and I guess I’m getting a little bit of rye spiciness, but I am pretty suggestible when it comes to these things... Body is on the light side with a fairly abundant carbonation.. overall I wouldn’t turn one of these down... but I would get bored fairly quickly.

Bottle from Bullwinkle’s Liquor in West Yellowstone, MT. Pours hazy gold with a slight white head. Aroma is a little honey and a little rye spice. Med body or nearly. Flavor matches aroma. Not getting much raspberry. But a little. Finishes fairly bitter. Flavor is not weak, but it’s kind of like it’s weak. Nothing really punching hard here. It needs a strong point, but hasn’t got one.
