Keg at EBF.

Hazy straw almost golden colored with a light fizzy head.

Nose is a bit funky, tart lemony fruit, lacto like acid, light horse blanket, hint creamy malty.

Taste funky, light horse blanket, hint acidity and light tart citrus, creamy malt, bright tropical fruit like guava. Dry light tart finish finish, drinkable.

Mouth is lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, a nice addition of cream ale and funk, funk is not overpowering, a bit more malty flavors would have been a bit nicer.
