Good beer. Tasty. Smooth, and absolutely no hoppy taste. Could use a higher ABV, but hey...it's pretty decent.

Thanks to Earlycsquid for sharing this one at the monthly bottle share held at Flask Fine Wines in Studio City, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid grain forward aspects all around.

Serving type: can.

A: Poured a hazy gold almost amber color into a pint glass, the head was relatively large white in color it dissipated rather quickly leaving a fair amount of lacing.

S: At first there is a hint of yeast, a subtle sweetness that is then over taken by hops, on the whole however the scent is weak, one has to really sniff right over the glass to draw in the scent.

T: The taste is light slightly bitter upfront, towards the end a very very mild sweetness is noticeable mixed in with a malty character

M: On the whole it has a very light feel, not very much carbonation though not flat the best way to describe it is thick though this is contradictory with its light character. I am not sure if I really like or dislike this seemingly contradictory feel it is admittedly very unique.

O: I'm a bit mixed on this one, the flavor is enjoyable and its slight complexity keeps one coming back for more, however the weak scent and what i would call bizarre feel are turnoffs. Perhaps this can was an outlier perhaps these are the desired traits of the style I'm not sure. Overall though it's not too bad and for something that is just as drinkable as a Bud and not much more expensive it's not a bad deal either.
