2.6/5 rDev -20%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2
Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Freshness date on the side of the label. Not diggin' the new "IPA" shouting label ...
Appearance: Deep golden beer, touch of haze (goes away as the beer warms), crowned with a quickly settling, tight, creamy white lace with tentacles that cling to the glass.
Smell: Floral, perfume/estery, dry Bazooka bubble-gum. Mild, real mild, diacetyl in the background.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, light-bodied. Big grain tannin character that lends a cracked grain, earth, dry, husky flavour and feel on the palate. This is a very dry beer. A bit "dirty" in character.
Malt sweetness is quite low, although a bready pale malt flavour and malt body shows through as the beer warms up, along with a dab of buttery diacetyl. Hop flavour has hints of citric rind, salt and a mineral edge as it snaps at the palate. Bitter overall. Fruity esters and more soft bubble-gum-like flavours. Odd "eggy" sulfur flavour and "cheesey" hop flavour thrown in the middle. Dry grain tannins in the finish with a leafy hop note and touch of hop oil on the tongue -- finish is very unpleasant, seems like it'll never go way.
Notes & Drinkability: This is a tannin ridden beer, unbalanced, astringent, hard to swallow more than one and needs some cleaning up in my opinion. It's a dirty beer. On the right highway for the style, but took the wrong exit.

On tap at Redbones BBQ
Creamy looking white lace and perfect clarity. Clean and crisp palate, nice uniform maltiness. Hops are clean and sharp with a woody earthy bite. Touch of buttery diacetyl towards the end which finishes mostly dry. Went very well with the catfish fingers.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light brownish/tan color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of mild, a bit of malts. Taste is also light for the style, malts up front, hops at the finish. Some caramel, and just a bit dry. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is drinkable and decent, but nothing special.
