Pours a cloudy light gold with a thin white head. Some yeast particles float in the beer. Smells of really sweet bready malts. No hop presence at all. Hopefully the taste is better cause this thing smells awful. I kind of thought it may be skunked until it tasted fine. Bready malts coming through on the taste, but not nearly as overwhelming as the nose. Just a little hop bitterness which is about right for the style. A little pungent bitter aftertaste is detectable. Fairly light mouthfeel although good and creamy for the style. Good carbonation, but not overdone as on a lot of lighter ales. Overall this is a solid offering, especially since it comes in a sometimes more friendly can format, as long as I don’t have to smell it much. It still doesn’t close to unseating Sun King for my go to lighter ale.

brystmar (1258) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Golden pour retains more lace than expected. Sweet malt bomb aroma supplemented by a basket of mild hops. Smooth taste of creamy malt and subdued hops. Low carbonation for the style. Decent for a canned session beer, I guess.

Theydon_Bois (8720) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at the Hey Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Hazed golden with a good sized off white head that soon reduces in size. Nose is pale malts, grass, light citrus, touch of fart, rather bland. Taste comprises cereals, citrus, pale malts, grass, light sugars. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Underwhelming stuff.
