Canned. Poured cloudy medium orange with a nice initial cap of white head.. some sediment suspended in there, but it otherwise looked good. The aroma picked up sweeter honey and bready notes with a pinch of spicy yeast.. soft and enjoyable. The flavor had sourdough bread at the core with lesser honey.. dry, dusty, and yeasty impressions around paired with a not-so-pretty sticky sour note.. finished a touch sour as well with more bread. Light-bodied with prickly carbonation on the palate.. didn’t flow too well.. some solid components, but not great.

Pours a hazy golden color, fizzy head. The aroma is bread...so much bread. Buttery sweet, thick and smooth. Very palatable. The cute marketing on the can doesn’t hurt either.

(12oz can) pours amber with nice white head that never disappears. Nose has pale malt, light hops and caramel. Taste is bready yeast, spicy, malty and creamy but crisp like a lager. Quite refreshing. No off flavors here, really good canned beer.

Suprisingly dark in color for the style with a bready nose. Really not bad at all for the style. Much better then the Pine Belt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good deep cloudy blond ale, more golden in color. Small head with lacing. Leathery machine grit aroma. The taste has a slightly fermented, doughy character.
Heavy body. Plugging finish, heavy fizz on the back on the throat.

Thanks mar! Yellowish pour. Nice white head. Aroma is malty and bready. Flavor is very bready, light banana and caramel malt. Not bad, not amazing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Unfiltered pour, yes! Gentle nose of grain, bread crust, sourdough, and just a pinch of citrus and spice. Tastes of liquid white bread, crust, sourdough, earth, grass, with plenty of yeast and fruit for contrast. Finishes with grass, earth, dough, and crust. Gentles bitterness. Light bodied, but mouth-filling. Can this style be done any better than this? I thought this was great.

Pours a dark straw color. Tall, foamy white head. Recedes with no lacing. Aroma of light banana, bread, and malts. Tastes of bread, hint of banana. No hop presence. Goes down easy. Light mouth feel. Not terrible, but I probably wouldn’t buy again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden orange in color with a light haze and a decent off-white head. Aroma is of toffee, caramel, banana, and dough. Taste is caramel and nuts with a buscuit like finish. Very smooth and overall pleasant to drink.
