3.48/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a snifter from the very first run of NOLA cans. (yay, NOLA!)

Appearance: clear, light golden with a two finger white head that has staying power; some lacing.

Smell: malts up front with grains, caramel, hops and floral undertones.

Taste: malty sweet start with a bitter finish. Slightly nutty.

Mouthfeel: medium; decent carbonation

Overall: if I went for lighter tasting beers, this would make a fine session brew. The bitter finish was a turnoff. Better on tap.

Serving type: can

3.4/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Draught: This one poured a clear, golden yellow color. There was a bit of a white foamy head that didn’t last long but did leave some lacing. Decent but lighter aroma. Malts, bit of corn, faint breadiness. The taste is half decent. A bit of malt sweetness, bit of the corn, some graininess and faint grassiness. Not sweet, but no bitterness at all. Taste is OK. Not exciting, but not bad either.

Serving type: on-tap
