Draught @ Birreria: This one poured a hazy, orangish color. There was a small off white head on it that didn’t linger too long, or leave much lacing. Interesting nose. I can smell a bit of the thyme. Light malts, a hint of pine and grain also. The taste is OK. Very subtle flavors. The thyme is there, but not overdone. Malts, hint of bitterness. It is a little hard to describe but it is good. A nice, unique beer.

Had this brew "Gina" a half dozen times since the rooftop bar was opened last spring. My first few times, I remember thinking the spicy thyme aroma worked nicely as a strong component of the nose but was glad its presence was more subtle in the taste.
The flavor profile from today's pour is WAY off from my previous experiences; unreal amounts of thyme overpower everything else. The beer currently in front of me deserves a 1.5, but I'm rating this based on an average of my multiple experiences. When done properly, this is a balanced and tasty beer. But today, it's a crazy mess worthy of a drain pour.
All that aside, mouthfeel is huge and creamy. Love cask beers. Perfect example of a beer you should sample before buying a full pint.

I had this on-tap at Lord Hobo during the pre EBF throwdown.
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a layer of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass.
Smell: Very herbal, which is to be expected. Not very sweet, but I'm picking up the bread like grain.
Taste: Some herbal malt flavors up front with bitterness showing up after a bit. The finish is where you can really tell this beer was brewed with thyme.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a slick finish.
Overall: This beer was a bit weird if you ask me. The herbs and hops didn't do real well together. Would have preferred if they let the herbs do more of their thing.
