look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Pours a very pale yellow with a foamy, fizzy white head. Tons of bubbles floating. The head sticks all over the glass, but not in a good way - almost cobweb like.

The smell is truly atrocious. It really smells like there's something wrong with it. Like a sickly musty lemon with a weird spicy twang - like someone vomited lemon cupcakes.

The taste is very hard to describe - I can't even swallow it - I took a few sips and spit it out. It has the same sickly flavor like musty old wet hay and old lemons with a weird spiciness.

There's no point describing the rest of it, because I really can't drink it.

I feel terrible giving such a bad review, but I can't let this one pass. If I did get a bad bottle, then I apologize to the brewer. Others, be warned before trying this one.

Received this bomber recently in a local-for-local trade from a surely well-meaning BA who shall remain anonymous.

Left the sediment in the bottle as I poured this into two pint glasses for the wife & I, leaving a pale, hazy yellow beer behind. The smell - oh good lord - is truly nauseating. Nobody else mentions it. Perhaps the beer has turned? My wife says is smells like "something I clean up at the hospital".

I must ask what gods the Beer of the Gods was created for, & who they plan on smiting for it. I hate banging the drum on people who are trying to do good things & make good beer, but this is not good. There's a grassy, wheaty overtone to this, followed quickly by that stench.

This is awful. Drain-pour & one of the worst beers I've ever come across. My wife concurs.

22oz bottle Poured into a pint glass. Drawn in by the name but if this is the beer of the gods, it's the wrong religion for me

Pours looking like gatorade with a tall fluffy head

Aroma of soap... not very appetizing at all. Faint notes of grape

Tastes like stale, limed-up coronas with sweetness up front.

Mouthfeel: Sweet and carbonated, more like soda than beer

I probably wont even finish the one bottle. I'm 3/4 through and it's tough to get through...

Great name, mediocre beer

1.93/5  rDev -40.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

A- Pale yellow color, cloudy, thin white head cover, lots of tiny carbonation bubbles throughout

S- Grains, pale malts, hops, bready, flowery, bit of citrus

T- Bitter hops, grain, yeast, bready, lemons, salty

M- Light/medium body, fizzy, very bitter taste that lingers

D- Couldn't finish one

This really fits the description of a "fizzy yellow beer". Not quite sure they were going for on this one but to each his own. If this is a Beer of the Gods then I guess a god I am not.

2.08/5  rDev -36%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

A-Pours a lightly opaque golden color. Frothy head is sleight but leaves some lacing. Apparently the Gods love Bud Light?

S-The scent is a mixture of slight skunkiness mixed with a more common Blonde Ale aroma. Slightly sweet with lemon and grass. A mix between a Macro and an acceptable warm weather beer.

T-The flavor is actually less attractive than the smell. There is a pretty unattractive initial bite. Some of the flavors found in the nose appear on the palate, but the combination of the bite and a violent carbonation attack leaves my tongue sad.

M-Light but the carbonation is too violent. Stings my tongue. I can't really decipher the flavors and let the beer sit on my tongue before the bubbles singe it.

O/D-Thank 'The Gods' I only got a single of this for free essentially. Not good. No redeaming qualities. I have had worse than this, but this is one of the weaker beers I have had in recent memory.

2.08/5  rDev -36%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

A - hazy pale yellow, with a thick white head that harkens back to its belgian style ancestors, too hazy to note any carbonation

S - a rather dull wheaty aroma, with slight citrus hints

T - wow, way thin, bitter, but not hoppy, more of a mustiness to it, and grassy like a field during a drought

M&D - semi-easy down, but why? not a great brew, too thin on flavor, neede more wheaty citrus too it. what gods are this a beer of?

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Served at about 38F in a nonick pint from a 12 oz amber bottle.

Aroma at the bottle neck was yeasty and sour, stronger nose than I'd expect from a blonde, more like a wit.

Poured cloudy and yellow with slight head, increased aggressiveness of pour to get some more nearly white bubbles, leaving some good lacing.

Musty and yeasty aroma, leads right into the metallic aftertaste. No decent start or finish, goes down lifelessly.

Body is alright, but carbonation is an awkward feeling film and combined with taste, each swallow is unimpressive. The bottle recommended serving cool but not cold, but the flavor only got worse as it warmed in the glass.

Drinkability is poor. I'd have a macro lager before another one of these. This was a sink pour, not because it was particularly foul, but because it was a waste of calories.

Had on tap at Deep Ellum in Allston.

This was billed as a hoppy American Farmhouse ale, and in terms of that style, it fit within the style more or less, however it wasn't overly enjoyable to me. It poured a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Not an overly strong smell, light hops, a little citrus, but it was hard to detect.

The taste was where this beer disappointed me the most. It was really unbalanced, almost unsure as though whether it wanted to be a hoppy beer or a farmhouse style ale. The hops came through lightly up front but then faded into this really off-flavor astringent taste. The mouthfeel was thin and watery.

Overall, it'd be a drinkable session beer if I enjoyed the taste better. I wouldn't recommend it, but it's worth a try.

Beer of the gods?

I've always wanted to try this as it is called "beer of the gods", and have passed on it many times and finally decided to grab a bomber and give it a shot.

A fogy gold color with a light and creamy head. The head it self does not contain much flavor. Not very sweet, mostly dull and a tiny hint of hops.

The smell is nothing special either. Light hops, little fruity, orange is the strongest point in the aroma.

A very citrusy taste, little bit of bitterness and very much lacking in the fruit that I recall from the aroma. Could probably have added more ingredients to this beer, as there is not that much taste going on.

Pretty light in your mouth, goes down like a carona, not much of an after taste (which isnt suprising because it doesnt have much a drinking taste either). Not something i'd purchase again but it could be quite refreshing on a real hot day.

It is a dark day for the beer gods indeed.

High & Mighty- Beer of the Gods

A- Hazy light yellow with the biggest chunkiest head. Thick foamy lacing.
S- Very light hay/ straw with lemon and honey.
T- Sour sugary yeast with hay/ straw and lemon zest. Grassy bitter hops and lemon finish this 1 off.
M- Very sour and tart, lemony, and sugary yet watery and bland in the end.

Overall- Not good, bland yet a lemon sour bitterness comprises this beer.
High & Mighty's worst offering.

reviewed from notes

22oz bottle poured into pint glass

A-pours cloudy yellow with sudsy bubbles, Rocky head with great retention. Leaves small soapy bubbles and rings of foamy lace.

S-smells grassy with hints of hops. No real strong discernible smells.

T-Has a fresh clean hoppy zing but no way to tell what hops they are as it fades rather quickly.Not amazing at all and its over in a flash but slightly refreshing.

M-carbonation is a bit excessive and kind of distracts from the beer a bit. Really thin and fizzy.

D-overall cheap and easy drinking. Nothing special but not the worst thing in the world.

12 oz bottle.

An obviously filtered pale ale. Yellow, mottled white head.
Musty aroma of corn mash. The flavor is doughy malt and a good amount of yeast. No real hop presence, just a bit of grass in the finish and a slightly metallic aftertaste. Light in body and the mouthfeel is a bit on the chalky side.
Nothing too redeeming for this one. It's somewhat refreshing in the end, but that's all this one really has going for it. I've tried two beers from this brewery to date and they both have been busts for me. Looks like they have some hard work ahead of them...

12oz bottle bought as part of a mixed High & Mighty 6-pack from Ryan & Casey's, Greenfield, MA.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" bright white head over the lightly light golden (yellow?) brew. Head fades at an acceptable pace, with spotty delicate lace. Aroma is minimal, but what is present consists of biscuits, with tinges of fruit and spicing. Taste is in your face bitter upfront, mixed with citrus that soon gives way to the generic bitterness again. Mouthfeel and drinkability are just not where I would hope a saison should be.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Almost clear, pale amber color. Hoppy nose. Strong carbonation and light-medium bodied. Flavor is unremarkable just some hops. Piney aftertaste. $5.50 for a 22oz bottle from Tully's Beer & Wine Wells, Me.
