1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This beer is not a cream ale. It is almost a spiced APA. Poured from a 16 oz can I got from brew brothers. Strong olfactory presence; sweet and rotten at the same time, weird candy like as well. Big strong hop presence, wants to be an IPA but the maltiness is there and forces it to back off in a cloyingly sweet way. Large and in charge this sweet brew is. Seems like much more than 5% fer sure. Its almost like it wasn’t fermented enough to get the sugars out er somethin. Yucky kucky mucky. Reminds me of many amber ales that are overdone and experimented with. Cloying sweetness overcomes the palate at time. Finish is unique hard old style candy laced with alky. Long bitter finish of an amber that wants to be an IPA, wew. Quite dissapointing to the pale lager lover. The sweet may be a misnomer in the name of this brew, its not really sweet per se, its more like alky laced somthing or other.

Poured a dark golden color and was hoppy on the nose. Tastes slightly bitter, with some herbs/spices. Pretty good from a can.

Clear and deep golden in color. Light, hoppy aromas. Flavor is of grass. Spice, more grass. I just finished mowing the lawn... na. Not this. Some malts in the middle. Then, more grass. Very herbal. Not that great. Certainly overhyped and overpriced too.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a hazy orange color with a huge soapy beige head that lingered forever and left some lacing. The aroma was sweet creamed corn, light perfume and hints of grapefruit and catbox. The flavor was tangy caramel, creamed corn, faint grapefruit and undertones that were must, earthy and herbal. Medium finish. Medium body. Eh.

Auburn pour. Nice nose of grassy hop and sweet malt. Beautiful further balance to of hops and malt in the flavor, with really nice smoothness in the mouthfeel. Very tasty.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear copper body that had a slight carbonation to it similar to mineral water. A thin white head that had no retention. Aroma was nice and interesting some base malts were distinguishable but were over shadowed by pine hops and a spice not that wasn’t sure if it was clove or nutmeg but along those lines. Initial flavor had a peach note to it mixed with some hops and spices. Body was light and thin.

473 mL can, Long Island, NY. Pours cloudy amber with small head. Smells fruity, hint of citrus and malt. Taste is slightly sweet with citrus and hoppy bitterness. Hopness is mild. I am not a big hop guy and I really liked this one. Awesome summer beer.

Tap at some Brooklyn bar. Mildly dry with a nice hoppy note. Good caramel backbone. It’s not a very complex beer, but it’s easy to drink. The grain flavor is sorta musty. It’s a pretty good summer beer.
