3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small pour on tap at Brickhouse BBQ (Madison, WI). Pours a richer golden yellow pour, gentle to growing haziness. A frothy whitish head dies to a small ring, laces small overall. Aromas are gentle corn and mellow cereal malt sweetness, dry earthy hops, bit of spice, and straw. Some grass, dough, and some touches of dryness grow on the palate. Initial is lighter end of the fold bodywise. Touches of mellow sweet malts, some straw, grass, gentle earthy hops. Kisses of corn, bready and cereal malts, a bit of spice. Bready, a touch grainy, cereal. Middle is corny, raw sweet malts get a bit odd. Backend and finish offer a bit more dryness, grass, earthy hop bitterness and scattered spice from the hops. The middle loses me a bit but the beer is fairly solid overall, a touch sweet at times but really brings it home as far as some nice dry and bitter earth qualities in the finish. Not bad.
