12oz can into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to vonschplieffen for sharing this new arrival to CT. It's good to see another RI brewery on the scene.

A: Slightly hazy pale amber body under a frothy white head. Ok retention, good lace. Nice.

S: Slightly salty, slightly vomitous, and primarily corny. Really not good.

T: Better here, with sweet corn being the dominant flavor. Very boring and one-note, with a mildly bitter finish. No better than average for a generally underwhelming style.

M: Light-to-medium body with light, creamy carbonation. Pretty good.

O: Apart from the awful smell this wasn't too terrible. I'm sure it's intended to be consumed directly from an ice-cold can - savoring it in a tulip may have put undue emphasis on the aroma. Obviously you'd expect a well-made beer to stand up to the strictest scrutiny, but I'm sure this would be fine as a thirst-quencher under the right circumstances.

Cheers!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

A: Light copper with a little yellow to it. Medium low carb and a low white foam film on top.

S: Steel. Grain and maybe wheat. Spice of caraway.

T: Starts off smooth light and juicy. Grain, wheat and oatmeal. Finishes with a light crisp tanginess. However, weird mineral copper and iron aftertaste ruined a this for me. The taste finishes long oily and mouth coating.

M: Again, long lingering oily aftertaste doesn't work for me. Thin with a small amount of viscosity.

O: After a few drinks, the mineral aftertaste was all I tasted. Not a fan.

12 oz can from my third beer-of-the-every-other-month-club. Poured into a large tulip glass.

A -- Pale kind of copper color with decent white head. Good carbonation. Not too hazy or clear. Highlights around the edges.

N -- Metallic. Light malts.

T -- Very subtle. Not a lot going on. Not bad, but not a lot of complexity either. Mostly a light toasted malt flavor.

M -- Light.

O -- Okay, for what it is. Would not seek out again.

Cheers.

Pours a clear golden straw-color with orange hues. Creamy very white head with moderate retention. Mild carbonation

Smells sweet and malty. Doughy bread. Some sugary caramel and honey. Definite presence of adjuncts as grainy corn shines through. Hop presence is grassy and understated

Taste follows the nose. White bread and honey. Somewhat biscuity. Lager yeast. Some vegetation and grain. Hops are very mild and grassy. No real bitterness to speak of

Feels smooth and creamy. Fairly light-bodied

Overall decent but not noteworthy. I'd get a 'gansett cream ale before this - more bang and less buck for those anyway
