In short: A nice bed of straws and cereals with a green herbal hop bill. Decent brew.
How: Tap at Ginger Man, NYC
The look: Clead blonde body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: Nose of fresh cereals and light herbal hops notes. Taste is full of dried straws, fresh chewy pale malts, distant notes of passion fruits. Generously hopped (relative to the style) with green herbal hops that at times reminded me of thyme or another cooking similar dried green herbal spice. Overall this was a satisfying pint even if the hop bill was a bit harsh in the finish. Drinking this beer in this renowned downtown Manhattan beer bar I realized that there is only two kinds of people who live in New-York, people who were born there and people who moved there.

Light yellow color. Aroma and flavor are nice and dry. Some light bitterness. Quite drinkable. A bit of grain and cereal, light pine and herbs, finished clean.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Blind Tiger, NYC. Certainly one of the lesser offerings I’ve had from this otherwise terrific brewery. Pale yellow pour, nicely frothy off tap, and inviting to look at. Nose of pale malts, slight spice, and maybe just a hint of fruit. Light body, needs substantially more liveliness to it. Taste is a bit anonymous. I suppose it’s more or less to style, with again a blend of faint spice and dry fruits, but nothing that elevates it beyond the quaffer tick.

Tap at the brewery with maggi, pj and Brendan. A great kolsch... Crisp with a bit tangy character. Hay, sugars...’light but flavorful.

Had at Tap NY. Taste is unspectacular, but it goes down extremely light and smooth. Very good session beer for a hot summer day.

Light taste with a orange filling. There is nothing that stands out about the beer. Does not warrant a second taste because if the weak background.

Huge thanks to capra12 for picking up a growler of this at DeCicco’s for me. Served in a Bruery tulip.
Pours a light yellow color with a pretty good white head. Decent retention and a bit of lacing as it goes down. The nose brings forward some light grain and very faint hops, but also brings forward an unfortunate DMS presence that is reminiscent of creamed corn and a bit of soaked cabbage. Luckily, it wasn’t terribly overwhelming. The taste is along the same lines and it’s tough to get past, though there are some nice element sin the background. Feel is light and fairly crisp. Other than the DMS issue, a really drinkable brew.
Serving type: growler
