Tap at the brewery. Clear golden pour with spotty lace. Nose is squashy, decent yellow melon..hints of NZ hops. Taste is soapy, light melon, finishing tea tannic. As it warms, the hop nose devolves to some solvent like. Really wanted to like this one, but it didn’t deliver.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A couple of growlers. Seems to very from okay to really good. Pours with a very lightly hazed, deepish gold hued body with a moderately large white head with good retention and lace. Aromas are herbal, hoppy, spicy, with low yeast character, mild sulfur, medium malt. Occasionally there is a very light hint of diacetyl. Flavors are bready, grainy, nicely herbal and citrusy and quite hoppy. Dry, nice malt, clean, crisp, neutral balance. Fuller carbonation, dry, medium bodied finish.

Slightly hazed golden pour with a white head. Nose is extremely malt forward. Lots of bread, biscuit, and dough. A weird toasted corn aroma, too. Some floral hop notes, too. The flavor is mostly toasted corn/corn chips with some sweet bread and biscuit. Floral hops, grass, and a light bitterness.
