3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can, canned on 11/03/2014 (date stamped on bottom of can). Served in a stange/Kölsch glass, the beer pours a gold color with about an inch white head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The aroma is nice, the brew smells like bready malt, grassy hops and some lemon/orange peel. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some honey and light floral hops. Mouthfeel/body is light, it’s crisp and it’s also easy and refreshing to drink. I’d probably enjoy this more on a hot day, but it was in the 50’s here today (which is nice for mid-December) so that’s close enough for me. So far I’m 3 for 3 with MadTree brews that I’d like to try again. $1.67 a can at Grain and Grape.

When Mad Tree Lift was poured into the glass it has a rich head and as I was drinking it there was lacing on the glass. It has a rich cream taste with a citrus note while. The finish is very smooth. Haven’t had a bad beer from Mad Tree yet

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden yellow from the can with dissipating bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of bready grain and biscuits, kolsch yeast back end. Taste follows, a hint of citrus in there. Safe and easy, but highly drinkable and well done.
