Tasted at a beer festival. The smell is that of pretzels, which I find amazing. That is where it ends. The taste is very hard to get down and it leaves an awful aftertaste.

On-tap 4/19/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House, in Warwick, RI served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark golden brown color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a buttery pretzel scent up front followed by wheat, caramelized malts and a touch of hops in the background.

T: The taste starts out very bready with the same buttered pretzel flavor prevalent. Then some mild sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel and fruit. The hops presence is very mild and creates a decent balance. The after-taste is bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent variation of style, it’s a decent beer to drink if you’re in the mood for this particular type of different flavor. Overall though it’s a just a mediocre beer.

Appearance is a clear brown color with a half finger white head.
aroma is nothing. Slight wheat and bread. No malt.
Flavor is strange bread and fake pretzel. Some weird berry flavor.
Mouthfeel is crisp and thin and actually the only refreshing thing about this beer.
I'm glad i tried it and it does taste like a pretzel.
just a stale gross watery pretzel
