I'm trying to drink local, slowly working my way through the many new beers from the many new breweries in the Twin Cities area. Here's another from Lucid. Tasted 28 November 2012, reviewed from notes.
Pours bright orange with a golden touch, crystal clear, with a loose stream of bubbles rising up. One finger of white head, okay retention, decent lacing.
Smell is nicely hoppy, dominated by citrus, with a sweet slant. Has a funny peanut butter aroma that becomes more prominent as the head fades and it warms up. Yeah, now I'm mostly smelling peanut butter. Started out better, but declined as that peanut butter came to the fore.
Taste... what's with the peanut butter? The flavor here is half hoppy pale ale and half that. It's too bad, as what I can pick up from the pale ale portion reminds me of some things from Three Floyds - light malts, slightly spicy, with a gentle but assertive bitter twinge. I'd like it, if only...
Light body, prickly carbonation. Makes my mouth tingle, and it last just as long as it should. It's actually really nice, and spot-on for a pale ale.
This beer would be excellent, if you could cut out the peanut butter. As is, it's pretty good, just kinda weird.
