Thanks to BA Smoked for sharing this growler with me. Poured into a couple of standard pint glasses, the brew appears a clear straw yellow with a frothy white head. The cap maintains as expected for the style with a spotty lace pattern across the top and on the glass.
The smell is buttery with herbal hops contrasting a bit of cereal-like sweetness. The nose is pretty average as expected for the style with the only highlight being a noble hop presence is noted.
The taste is as buttery as the nose leads on with a touch of fruity alcohol ester and faint herbal hops. The hops provide a mild herbal flavor and not much bitterness. I guess I am super sensative to diactyl because the buttery character of this brew ruins it for me. Underneath is a mild grain sweetness that lasts into the aftertaste.
This is medium bodied with a modest level of carbonation. Sonewhat crisp but not as much as you would expect for the style since the buttery notes linger and ruin the crispness. I wanted to like this beer, I really did. I always look forward to new local brews but this one is nothing more or less than a fair bmc substitute.
