Tasting at Matt’s, can
Hazy blond color, small head. The aroma is a bit citrusy, not bad. But the flavor is too dry, with just some crispy malt, and later a light citrus character. Extremely dry final, a bit papery.

Drake (8550) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear pale golden color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus and pine hops and faint pale malts. The taste is pale malts, citrus and buttered popcorn. Medium bodied. I see the other ratings of this are much better than mine, so I’ll try to re-rate from a bottle or a different keg. 7/4/4/2/11

Rerate.... Bottle this time. Better balance, and the buttered popcorn comes across as more doughy malts. They should know they’re lucky I even bothered this much of a re-rate after I just sampled the complete abomination that is the last batch of Bourbon Cryptical.7/4/7/4/14

473mL can, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is dull, with biscuity malt and feint floral hops. Flavour brings out dry crackery malt and some mild resinous hops. Nothing special, but still quite drinkable. Very dry palate. Decent.
