2.45/5  rDev -22.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A - No real head to speak of off of a standard pour, just a fizzy layer of pure white fizzy bubbles that recedes slightly leaving a cloudy lacing... Loads of rapid carbonation race to the top... A murky yellowish brown color...

S - The aroma is completely subdued... Nothing really stands out... Just an odd mix of random aromas... An ever so faint hint of Pear... An ever so faint hint of raspberry... A very thin layer of caramel malt...

T - Bready malts... A touch of caramel... An artificial fruitiness... Eucalyptus...

M - Medium bodied... Thin... Just a very faint bite of carbonation... Slightly dry... Mildly salty...

D - Nothing too impressive going on here... The appearance is average at best and teeters on slightly off putting... The aroma and taste are an incoherent mix of scents and flavors... I hate to be overly harsh on craft offerings, but this one is sub par all the way around and drifted far from style guidelines... This was my first Tommy Knocker offering, and while I won't discriminate in the future, it won't be a brewery that I eagerly seek out...
