3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled on 9/1/12 consumed on 9/11/13. Let’s see how well it garded. Hazy orange pour big frothy head. Smells like apple cider vinegar/lemony, german hops, yeast. Tastes like a musty yeasty bland brown ale. Brettanomyces comes in here and blankets. Maybe too much secondary ferment. At least it’s balanced. So balanced it’s boring.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a warm honey gold with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is nothing special: bread, a little yeast and malt and a slight sweet straw. Mouthfeel is generally thin yet a slight touch of viscosity. Bubbles are small and subtle. Taste is light and a bit sweet. A little sourdough bread touched with a hint of honey-apple sweetness. Not to get too cute but it tastes like sunshine through water. As the label says, this is an easy beer to be enjoyed on a lazy sunny afternoon. Pairing perfectly with a little Mt. Tam from Cowgirl Creamery.
I think its perfect for what it’s supposed to be. I’m a fan.
