2.65/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

22 fl. oz. bottle at refrigerator temperature poured into a snifter. Bottled on: Sep 02 2009.

A - Light, bright yellow body under a robust but ephemeral head that quickly backs down to a thin, inconsistent layer across the top of the brew.

S - Nothing terribly exciting - just the barebones of brewing: sweet malted barley, lightly fruity (think sweet citrus, lemon, and stone fruit) hops, and the floral and fruity esters given by the ale yeasts. After warming for just five minutes in my glass, the brew takes on a skunkiness that isn't enjoyable and detracts from the overall smell of the brew.

T - Unbalanced, clumsy, and boring. As I noted when commenting on the smell of this brew, the pieces are all there (barley, hops, and yeast), but they don't fit well together. The finish is weak.

M - I don't dig the way the carbonation feels. It's too prickly and rough. This beer's carbonation doesn't help to lift flavors off of the palate - rather, it only makes the beer feel more disjointed.

D - Not worth the money I paid or the title "Beer of the Gods." I find it to be sloppy and unfocused. If you're going to have the swagger to label a beer that you make so confidently, you'd better have much, much more to back it up. Weak showing from High and Mighty.

3.65/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - hazy light straw with minimal white head fades quickly, but leaves nice lacing.

S - Light malt is the overwhelming fragrance. Some herbal hops. I was afraid this might be an old bottle, but the taste...

T - Made up for the lack of aroma, Very flavorful for such a light beer, earthy herbal hops, with a little spice. Light malty sweetness to balance it off.

M - Light medium carbonation, clean.

O - Very happy with this brew. Not a huge fan of the style which makes this one all the more impressive. Very flavorful 4.5% option.

3.53/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- Hazy lemony yellow. Cloudy! Had a nice, bright white, foamy head. Tiny bit of lacing. Head does die out to a thin layer with lots of small bubbles from the carbination.

S- Lemony, little orange, bready/biscuty malts, spiciness from the hops. Has a wheat beer scent as well. Really well balanced.

T- Follows the nose to a T! Tastes like an American lager meets a wheat ale really. Something like a German hefeweizen. The lemon taste, with biscuty malts and a spiciness from the hops is what jumps out on the tongue. Overall there isn't much else that can be said for the beer.

M- light towards medium mouthfeel. Very crisp, clean, and refreshing. Very carbonated.

Overall I'd give this beer a solid B grade overall. Not too exciting, but it's above average for me when considering American lagers and some wheat ales. Fairly decent stuff from High and Mighty. I look forward to finding and try more of their beers.

3.51/5  rDev +8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a hazy honey color capped by a minuscule head that fades quickly leaving no lace

Smell: Bready and grassy

Taste: Bready malt with a very grassy and bitter hop kick that dominates the mid-palate and the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Not too sure what to make of this beer; it could be a nice quaffer but the grassy bitterness of the hops just isn't sitting right with me; it's like a pilsner without the crispness

Serving type: on-tap
