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.

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.

A - Arrived in a mason jar with a small, bubble head. The beer is a golden straw color, and quite clear. Visible bubble carbonation.

S - Minimal aroma, but it is as expected.

T - Mix of floral hops and very mild doughy malt. Bitterness is pretty strong here and the other flavors are rather indistinct.

M - Bone dry and astringent carbonation. Not pleasant.

O - The flavors aren't bad, but don't stand out in any way. The mouthfeel is incredibly uncomfortable, to the point where I'm beginning to wonder if there was something wrong with the keg? I checked other reviews to see of others had the same experience, and hopefully this was a limited problem. Would try again, but I'd take most any pilsner over this regardless of carbonation issues.
