4.2/5 rDev +9.9%
Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at the CCB tasting room. Poured into a pint glass.
A: Clear brown in color, with a nice white head. There is a bit of visible carbonation.
S: Bitter malt aroma, with a trace of hops.
T: Nice bitter flavor but balanced, bitter citrus bite, then a muted hoppy finish.
M: Nice weight, not too heavy. Alcohol presence almost non-existent.
O: I've had this a couple times now, and it's definitely a good to very good bitter.

Enjoyed on tap at the Cigar City taproom.
This beer pours a hazy golden color. Bright citrus and bready malts on the nose. It's very toasty and grainy, with a strong bright citrus presence. There's also a decent amount of complexity from the yeast here as well. Excellent aftertaste. Light and carbonated, very drinkable. An easy quaffer.

A: single finger white head on a deep golden body.
S: Grassy, floral and toasted malt. a little wet sick hop aroma as well.
T: Similar to the aroma with a stronger yeast character than I was expecting. A nice malt profile is well represented.
M: fuller bodied than expected with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a collaboration beer which I had at the Hogtowne Beer Festival. Managed multiple pours from both the Cigar City and Swamp head tents. I had a little trouble putting my finger on some of the aromas and flavors and had my fellow beer drinkers help me out with this one. Overall a drinkable and nice beer. I love seeing collaborations like this one.
