3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Beer Study. Pours a very cloudy pale blonde with two fingers of cream white head. First impression on the aroma is peanut butter. Having a hard time getting away from that one. Some spice in there. Some green apple skin in the flavor with a heavy yeasty component. Yeast dominates flavor for me. Light bodied with some spice on the finish.

Draught. Pours an amber color with a smallish head. Nose was fairly wheaty from the underlying style with some orange peel and a little bit of coriander coming through. Taste is much the same, with a lot of spices, but not a huge fan of it. OK, but not a lot of substance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Another solid brew from MB after a rough, rough start. Pale gold pour, nice and frothy. Nose is sharp and spicy, with some bright hops complementing the additions. Taste is not bad, but marred by some diacetyl notes that may or may not be the fault of the brewer. Flowers, spice, and fruit are there but the possible complexity tended to be washed out a bit.

Pint at Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet, cereal sweet with rye bite. Some.Citrusy orange scent. Nice head minor lace. Sweet flavor. light body, smooth mouthfeel, sweet, tad tart finish. Good, easy drinking beer aroma.and flavor dulled as warmed. Good.with 100 degree heat but not sure if rye works as yeast spice swap.out.....
