COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Easy drinking with hints of sweet corn, bread and caramel, this beer finishes with a blast of citrus hop and just enough crisp to balance the sweet. It’s a toast to rolling surf, Baja hoodies, beach BBQs and the elusive green flash. Pairs with summer’s grilled foods like BBQ chicken, beef or fish. Also great with cinnamon or caramel desserts.

I tried a sample which was nice so I didn’t have to waste my money on this. Bready with sharp hop undertones. It needs refining and better balance. There is nothing really summer-y about this seasonal beer. This really just tasted unfinished and amateurish. I generally like Empyrean, but this is not a good offering from them.

NachlamSie (3483) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2015
12 oz bottle best before October from that smoke shop in McCook, NE. This is a hazy light orange with a long lasting white head. Aroma has notes of peaches, earthy hops, and bread. The palate is medium with some noticeable sugars giving it body. There are flavors of stone fruit, grassy hops, and grains. Backend bitterness starts to build towards the end of the glass. Decent enough.

Bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Lightly sweet with some mild spice, wheat, and light hops. Has a faint apple cider taste. Interesting, but average.

Only had a small sample at a tasting. However, it tasted beer than it's current RB rating. Aggressive carbonation and decent hops for the low abv. Some nice subtle sweetness as well. Decent.
