2.17/5 rDev -41.8%
Received as an extra in a recent trade...
Pours an attractive clear light golden with a very thick creamy head... Very thick head.. Foamy and persistent...
Once the towering mound of foam subsided, the faint aromas of piney hops began to waft out of the glass along with a nice pale malt aroma to compliment it quite nicely. Nothing overwhelming, just nice and solid...
First sip brings a faint hop/malt blend and then this one vanishes and actually gets really unpleasant... Quite watery and flat tasting actually.... Another sip brings more of the same... I'm guessing this is indeed a bad can but its all I have to work with... 2 sips into it and I'm giving it another try... Dang... This one goes down the drain... I had high hopes for this too...
I'm definitely planning on revisiting this one as soon as I get the chance as I find it hard to believe that this is legit... Looked and smelled very good and then went downhill fast...

Many thanks to my sister Laura for this one. a new brew from a Chicago brewery. 4.2% ABV, I love a good session brew!
This is also #BOTG 27!
Poured from can into DFH snifter. Pours a murky yellow/orange color. decent lacing and head retention. small bubbles come up from the bottom of the glass. Smell- there is a floral aroma..reminds me of potpourri and popcorn. Buttery aroma. Orange peel as well. Taste- mild bitterness with an unwanted soapy experience. somewhat watery. A little coriander, lemon peel. This lacks body, sweetness, and is a little high on carbonation. I suppose if in the summer, this would drink well from the can if it was a little colder. But, this isn't that memorable. A little bleh.

Gold with yellow and brass hues. Slight chill haze.
Grain, dust, chaff, dried lemon zest, plastic, rubber bands, banana oil and ritz crackers.
Grain, cabbage and a slightly burnt flavor. Medium level of carbonation.
Medium- body and slightly watery around the edges.
I wonder if I got a bad batch. The beer was just odd. Tasted at the tap room.

I had this on tap at Half Acre. The beer pours a light murky gold with a decent white head, nothing of note. The aroma is light hops pretty boring. The taste is bad, its a trumped of version of a bud light. Light hop, mostly skunk and a super light feel. Mouthfeel is water and not something I would drink more than half a pint of. Quite disappointing.

Can received as an extra from a recent trade. Light, golden-yellow pour with moderate white head. Decent lace, especially given the style. The minimal aroma is predominantly malty; smells like corn too.
Watery, malty taste. Hints of hops midway through, but finishes sweet & bland instead. Body is slightly thicker than average with just the right amount of carb.
Not bad for the style, but I'd strongly prefer Daisy Cutter (or hell, Zombie Dust) 100 times out of 100.
