2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours light golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, very basic bready and bland caramel weird staleness to it. The flavor was just as off, a stale bread old caramel sweetness, A strong corny cereal note to it in the finish, it tastes like a bad line or something. Medium body and a soft carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had notes of light grain with a bit of grass hops and a hint of flora. Flavor was similar with sweet grains and grass with a bit of bread and flora backing. A bit thin for my liking.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler flight on tap at Moonshine (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy straw golden hue, touches of glowing yellow and gold, decent haze and decent whitish head that dies to a small whitish ring, small lacing. Aromas are fairly clean, crisp cereal grains, bread, and touches of cheerios, light grass and dryness, faint toast. Initial is lighter bodied with bready and cereal grains up front, wet bread, touch of corn and wheat, some faint honey, light citrusy lemon with a touch of honey. Into the backend more lemon, light grass, crisp cereal grains. Finish leaves some raw cereal grainy bitterness, grass, light lemon grows. Ok.
