look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

5.3% ABV confirmed. I love the funny label art. "Malt beverage brewed with honey and blueberries." 12 fl oz brown glass bottle with branded yellow pry-off cap acquired in a trade with michaellcoates and served into a Mitchells of Lancaster flared stem-tulip in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I liked their Headhunter IPA.

Served chilled. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger head of white colour. No real cream. Not very frothy. Thickness is lacking. Above average to pretty good (~4-6 minute) retention. Uneven lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a clear copper. Nicely vibrant. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Looks generally good overall. Not unique or speical, but there are no overt flaws.

Sm: Blueberries, artificial fruit syrup, honey, clove honey, clean barley, and neutral malts. Nectary as hell and sweet. Appealing, but it does illicit suspicion; I'm hoping it's not an artificial sugar bomb. Complementary light floral hopping. No yeast character or alcohol comes through. Pretty strong.

T: Heavy on the blueberry - which does feel authentic. But there is a bit of artificial fruit syrup character here; fake currants bolster the berry notes. Honey throughout. Clean barley. Neutral malts. It's a pretty simple build, but it's balanced for what it is. By no means too sweet or cloying as I feared, but definitely on the sweeter end of the sweet/bitter scale. Flavour intensity and duration are average. A pleasant, drinkable beer. Not much complexity or subtlety here, but it deliver son its premise. I do like it.

Mf: Very light on the palate. Smooth and wet. Refreshing. Good thickness and body. Fleeting. A bit overcarbonated. Complements the flavour profile nicely. Soft.

Dr: Quite drinkable, but I doubt I'd order a pitcher of this to share with friends. The sweetness would prevent me from wanting more than one in the same night, but I'd get it again if I was in the mood for a light summer beer with a little more flavour than a macro crap lager. Hides its ABV well. This would be a good beer to ease newcomers into craft/micro beer. An interesting brew from Fat Heads.

C+
