On tap at the Bruery tasting room that was staffed like a wal mart (i.e. tons of customers, very few employees, long lines).

Pours looking like one of the lightest, thinnest yellow colored beers ever. Calling it yellow isn't even accurate, its what yellow looks like after you pour a bunch of water into it. No head on it. Really doesn't look impressive at all. Utter failure.

Aroma, ugh, what the dillio? This smelled bad. Like if you let a garden product just rot. and sulfur was coming out of it. Squash, wheat, pumpkin, whatever, it had the rotting smell to it. Like really bad funk. Tasted a little better, the horrible aroma and appearance are left behind, mild watered down lemon and wheat notes. Approaching beer territory. Bland, but still has kind of a brackish off putting mouthfeel and aftertaste.

I don't know what this is, an abomination of the awesome hottenroth seems to be the most fitting answer.

While I'm definitely a Bruery loyalist, this beer reveals my allegiance to only go so far. . .

This is not a good beer. I guess I see the appeal of a low alcohol, almost flavorless beer for some settings (4th of July party with Bud-swigging relatives? beer pong?), but not at $10 a bottle. This isn't what I'm looking for from the Bruery. Smells boring, almost like nothing, tastes thin and vegetable-y. The Hottenroth is awesome, but this bastard sibling is nothing of the sort.
