Pours a hazy golden, with average head. Loopy but unremarkable lace.

Nose is toasty grains -- very malty. Average.

Flavor is sweet honey malts -- not at all complex nor unique. I echo my previous comments, as this one drinks very average -- drinkable, yes, but memorable, no.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Golden with decent lacing. No foam.

Smell: Cinnamon, raisins, and tons of sweet caramel. Delicious.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Lots of honey and some pine. Rather fruity in the background. Raspberries? Mouthfeel starts thin but builds body as it warms.

Overall: One of the better light ales I've had recently.

There's been decent amount of hype from this Latin brewery out of Chicago. Even with all the hype, I haven't heard much about the beer. I was at my local bar and they had a few bottles, so I decided to give it a shot.

A- A goldenrod color with a white thick head of about a finger worth of foam. There was decent head retention and lacing.

S- Very subtle amounts of light malt and honey. I had to give my glass a few swirls to get the smells out. Seems like there may be some wheat also.

T- Extremely light. Honestly tastes like water and honey. Barely taste the malt.

M- Very light bodied and moderate carbonation.

O- This was just a terrible beer. I thought I was just drinking some bad water. I know that this type of style is supposed to be light, but there was no flavor at all.

12oz bottle, another contract brew for a brewery that may very well not know what hell they have wrought, even in their marketing-tinged pursuit of the same.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw colour, with one finger of puffy, foamy, off-white head, which leaves some decent hopcone-esque webbed lace around the glass as it quick dissolves to nil.

It smells of grainy, bready pale malt, a bit of generic orchard fruitiness, a little nudge of musty honey, some more or less pleasant leafy, earthy hops, and an admittedly weak (like that's a plus) diacetyl-laced Minhas skank factor. The taste is a lot more of the unfortunate but quite honestly forecasted plastic and rancid-butter laden malt - the purported caramel and honey there, sure, but well obfuscated, with a subtle herbal, and leafy OK Liquor liqueur afterthought.

The carbonation is more or less average, the body medium in weight, and quite cloying in its rendering of any actual smoothness. It finishes well off-dry, the adjunct-sullied malt doing no one any favours, and the other players, in the form of cooked veggies and twisted herbal hops, just making things worse in their rather underwhelming ways.

Sigh, another beer re-marketing plan ruined by a single (or more, I don't really fucking know) meeting with the Minhas clan of lovely Calgary, AB, Canada, through the auspices of their Cheesehead country operation. How many styles have so far been co-opted by the skank that is the SOP of this bunch of accountants masquerading as a brewery?
