2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber color with a fizzy white head that left in tens of seconds. Light caramel aroma. Near medium with fizzy, near creamy, carbonation. It has caramel flavor. Arguably just a touch of hop bitter. It goes down surprisingly well. Finishes caramel with a little grain, and hop that has to be imagined - there is some bitterness. It’s actually refreshing when it first hits the mouth; the finish is a bit too herby/grainy. Still, this may be the best American macro. I certainly can’t remember thinking good things about a mainline A-B brew until this one.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle... Let’s go swillin’ since the cold & flu medicine is providing no relief for my aching head and body... Clear, amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention... Ok, they got all that right! Looks so good, I can’t wait to smell it... should’ve waited. Earthy, lightly malty aroma with notes of black pepper and about fifty varieties of hops forced together in an unholy marriage. I really CAN wait to taste this one, but here goes... not so good. A touch malty for a low-carb beer. Otherwise, medicinal and then, even more medicinal. I can’t describe it as well as I would like, but I can say that it’s not much better than the cough syrup I’ve been living on the past few days. Light-bodied and creamy actually, with fizzy carbonation. Finishes a tad too sweet and, again, medicinal. Poor choice of remedies on my part. However, I’m going to give it a few points for actually tasting like beer instead of seltzer water... bad beer, but beer nonetheless. I’m going to chase this one quickly with a Troeg’s Nugget Nectar and Victory Hop Wallop. Those will surely cure my ills!
