4.15/5  rDev +21.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Had this one on draft at Fuzzy's tacos, poured into a goblet.
Pours a golden color with a thin white head.
Smells mostly of sweet malt and bread.
Tastes almost like an amber, sweet malt, buttered biscuits, with a hint of citrus.
Light and has a great taste, very chuggable. I was really impressed with this beer, at first I was skeptical but it turned out delicious.

Serving type: on-tap

3.24/5  rDev -5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: Clear, semi dark gold. Medium carb. Sticky dotted white lacing with low retention.

S: Wheat barley and a touch of tangy rye. Slightly sweet doughnut like bread.

T: Slightly sweet with a tangy rye bread. A little warm nutmeg taste through the middle. Finishes carbonic and watery. Quite clean with slight sour tang finish.

M: Mildly dry and good reasonably clean finish. Fairly thin.

T: Better than a macro light beer, but only by a slim margin. It sits in limbo between styles for me: If I want water I'll have water, if I want beer I'll drink something bigger.
