COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An inviting, 5% a.b.v. ale that we call a breakfast beer. Modeled after a bowl of cereal,it’s made with barley, wheat, oats and rye, and is finished with honey. The hop character in this beer is subtle and lends hints of black currant and mint. We ferment this beer very dry and add milk sugar to create a delicate and unique sweetness. The large quantities of honey and specialty grains enable this lower-alcohol refresher to provide a unique taste that’s like a sunrise in your mouth.

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Poured from a can into a glass mug. Pours a hazy golden color with a thick white head that initially fades and minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet and grainy with a hint of honey. The taste has a small bite up front but is then followed by a grainy and honey taste, with a lingering grain taste as well. Lightly carbonated with slight lingering bite on the roof of the mouth. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this beer. I am not a huge fan of malt/grain forward beers, so I didn’t enjoy this one too much, but I can tell it is nicely made. Will still definitely drink the rest of it. I can tell that they were aiming for the cereal taste that they describe.

PorterPounder (7221) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2016
San Antonio, TX - Total Wine, The Rim - 16 oz can. Hazy medium orange pour, initial very frothy off-white head that fades after a while. Aroma has some light honey accents, a light citrus bent, some wheat-like accents. Flavor is similar to a Saison, some grainy accents. a touch of nectarine fruitiness, some honey sweetness, kind of reminds me of Tang breakfast drink. Mouthfeel is thick enough.

burg326 (5266) - Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Poured a light amber color with aromas of light honey, some feint wheat, and a touch of sweetness. Flavors match the aromas, its an interesting beer, but it did not grow on me.

Tap@Flying Saucer, Fort Worth, USA. Light earthy aromas of wheat. Yellow color with medium creamy head. Light smooth taste of artificial wheat. Narrow taste spectrum and short wheaty aftertaste. Medium body with light carbonation. Very light and poor in every way. Palate would be ok in 8% series.

Brandon1989 (497) - Euless, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a small white head that dissipated very quickly leaving no lacing. The aroma is honey, oats, and sweetness. The aroma wasn’t all that special but it is quite extraordinary in the flavor. In the taste, I pick up the honey, the sweetness from the milk sugar, oats, and some hops mixed in there as well. This beer is quite complex.

First beer from this new company.. Day Break is billed as a breakfast beer modeled after a bowl of cereal. Aromas of honey, wheat,some nuts, and i can smell the sweetness from the milk,and a touch of booze, not too bad. Body is a orange/ yellow body, kinda hazy the cap reduced down and is leaving some spotty lace. Flavors of malts, nuts,cereal, the sweetness nor the honey really come through. Overall its a nice enough sipper, yeah i would try it again.
