On-tap 3/19/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House, in Warwick, RI served in a tapered mug glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, bananas, caramelized malts, lager yeast and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat, lager yeast and a hearty malt character. Then some sweet flavors of bananas and caramel come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

On tap at Congregation Ale House in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, banana, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with earth, caramel, banana, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great smell, but the flavors are more earthy than I was expecting.

Very hazy beer with great head retention. The beers almost looks like real New England apple cider that is a little foamy. Similar in color and cloudiness. I got a yeasty aroma of clove, and just strait up yeast. For the flavor I was picking up on some wheat and other malt flavors with a slightly sweet finish. Not sure if the looks of the beer caused my to think this, but to me the beer almost tasted like graff. A malty mixture with some slight apple notes and a similar mouth feel minus the acidity. Very interesting beer I would love to know how they brewed it.
