2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain/cracker, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of DMS, linoleum, and detergent.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean, husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Seems like maybe some promise lies under the covers, but the clunky/industrial flaws are prominent and difficult to ignore (in both nose and mouth). A drain pour, but at least the brewer’s heart was in the right place.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Where and how: Bottle 500ml
Aroma: very nice hop profile, pleasant front, hinted meadow herbs, flowers with touch of citrus 7+
Top: smaller yet dense lasting top.
Base: hazy, deep gold.
Palate : sadly a bit thin bodied yet beyond that very nice texture and work on it.
Taste: as in aroma in short – very nice. Refreshing friskier front, light freshness, easy going with softer mellower end. Stared very good, finished as great brew.
other notes world class creation.
