3.8/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: A medium golden color with a sizable and sticky head which takes some time to disappear.

S: Some serious bread and cornflake smells right up front with citrus (lemon) and something sweet underneath.

T: Very biscuity almost like a ginger snap with a little lemon flavor tucked in there. The taste really took me by surprise as something unique as least among my beer-drinking experiences.

M: Not too carbonated almost watery on the palate which makes it sort of thirst-quenching.

O: I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. The 6.2 ABV goes seemingly unaccounted for as it is very smooth and lacks any strong hops or otherwise alcohol-masking flavors. The flavors that are present are not subtle but still balanced and approachable. I would certainly have this again and again.

3.51/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Clear light golden. Lots of rising bubbles. Decent swath of off white head and lacing.
smell: Slightly pungent, spicy floral and slightly malty sweet. Not terribly impressive nose but pleasant enough.
taste: Not as rich as the nose. Fairly clean and dry. Again, not terribly impressive but pleasant enough.
overall: Back in the day before tasting the explosion of rich brews, this woulda been a primo. dug it but unlikely to seek this out too often.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner.

A: Light golden hue. Pervasive rising effervescence. Pours a 2+ finger, frothy, white head. Craters slowly and unevenly leaving dry residue behind as it does. Dry sticky lacing, and lots of it.

S: White bread, lemon citrus, and tree bark.

T: White bread with a slight hop bite. Not much else.

M: Light and crisp. Full flavored. Filling bready aftertaste.

D: Sessionable.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Tons of effervescence, great head, and pervasive lacing. Nose is bready with citrus and woody notes. Bread, accentuated with a light hop bite. Overall, this is a fair quaff.
