On tap @ Daily Pint. Golden pour with a white head. Initial smell is kind of bland, but from there things get pretty bread forward. Toasted malt, floral hops, yeast, and some citrus peel. The flavor has a nice sweetness to it. Plenty of bread and toast. Some citrus, floral hops, and a touch of yeast.

On tap at Cole’s. Served initially too cold, its true balance and flavour reveals itself as it warms to room temperature. Light yellow,and lacey, but yet spot on and so drinkable. Very good dinkability. Very good malting that adds to the mild but significant bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at CK. Good thing because I would never go to a Phish concert. Clear golden to straw pour. Weak head formation. Creamed corn DMS and diacetyl in the nose. Taste is suddy, soapy, and richer corn flakes and small oatmeal. Creamed corn DMS throughout. Typical raw, grain heavy, American prohibition style lager. Grits, corn, oatmeal. With decanting, diacetyl cleans up a bit. Less slick on the palate. Tangy and lemon heavy. Rich and refreshing. Like the Hip Helles, not sure if these off flavors are intentional or unintentional. DMS is a pretty common off flavor for cool fermentation. I liked it regardless.

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear golden amber with a medium sized creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bready malts and floral and grassy hops. The taste is bitter herbal and grassy hops with pale malts. Medium bodied. Quite refreshing. I could see this drinking well at an outdoor music festival.
