3.6/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: Pastel orange-yellow in color. Very hazy. Forms a moderate sized off
white colored head. Good retention. Lots of lacing.
S: Aroma is quite vegetal and is dominated by cucumber skins. There is a bit of herbal quality to it as well with lighter notes of celery and yeasty spices.
T: Taste is full-on salad. Again the cuke dominates the beer, with lesser notes of celery and green pepper. Mild to moderate sweetness. Peppercorn notes on the back end come through more as a spiciness than a distinct flavor. Herbal finish. Dry finish.
M: Medium bodied with a slight creaminess to the beer. Mild peppery spiciness. Dry on the finish. Mild bitterness.
O: Okay, this beer isn't bad. Really, it's not. But my wife gave up after the first sip leaving me with 749ml of salad beer when a single glass is more than plenty. Luckily, it's nowhere close to being a drain pour so I put it away, but I can safely say I won't need to be revisiting this beer anytime soon.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Batch # 202.
Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, cucumber, and pepper aromas. Taste is much the same with cucumber and pepper flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting use of cucumber and whatnot.
