2.88/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured a nice light amber with a touch of copper, a thin white head that quickly dissipates into a light white ring of bubbles.

The smell is very mild, just a light bready sweetness.

The flavor is mild with a light malty sweetness followed by a touch of bitterness and a long lingering astringency.

The mouthfeel is very dry, maybe the only sign of the bourbon staves that I really detect.

Pretty average and boring, out of the 3 project 12 beers this one looked like it had the most promise, but turned out to be pretty boring and a bit flawed.

2.98/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
5.5% ABV, 13229 on side of label.

A - Crystal clear, this deep golden beer has very little carbonation feeding the poorly retained off-white head. Wispy fingers of lace creep up the glass but the still brew doesn't extend the best invitation.

S - Vanilla extract notes waft from the pale lager as this simple pale-malt-based beer suggests hints of wood but no alcohol.

T - Wood stave-centered, this earthy beer has an unusual, almost plastic-y flavor leading into vanilla and faint alcohol which overtake the simple lager quickly.

M - Looks can be deceiving because this beer has high carbonation and a smooth body that finishes dry and rather clean but lacks any hook.

O - A training wheel "barrel-aged" beer for Budweiser drinkers, perhaps? This beer doesn't quite come together anywhere along the line but save for the weird flavor, it's not terrible. Lacking any sort of hook, the vanilla and wood doesn't quite meld well with the base beer and Bourbon is nowhere in sight.

I tried this beer the day it came out. I would compare it to the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, but has left bourbon flavor. That's a good thing to me since it has a more smooth taste to it. The only bad thing with the package is that you only get three bottles in the twelve pack sampler. I hope that this beer become's it's own beer like the Black Crown did from the first Project 12 edition.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Golden hued with a slight brown coloration. Minimal head after the pour. Great clarity and lively carbonation bubbles. I definitely get vanilla in the aroma and not much else. Flavor is vanilla with a bit of a cream soda. Smooth and creamy. Might be good with ice cream. Good for someone who wants a lighter bodied dessert.
