3.09/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured to a pint glass, nice head developed, a bit bubbly, with mild retention and lacing. Appearance was a copper / amber color with a slight haze. Aroma had notes of malt and citrus with some sour thrown in. Tasted earthy with notes of malt, toffee, grass and wood, almost a woody / whisky taste. Mouthfeel was light, almost watery, with a mild and dry aftertaste.

Serving type: can

3.65/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours an orange amber, clear and with lots of bubbles coming to the top. A dirty off white head of creamy foam that falls fast. Nose is malty, some corn sweetness and a bit of floral. Drinks malty but light with a lager carbonation that has some bite to it. Light caramel. Sweet with a bit of hop bitter at the very end and some malt dryness that defies the sweetness of the adjunct. It reminds me of corn flakes with a little sugar on them. Soft creamy mouthfeel with a clean finish. Grainy and even a bit tart. Some herbal in the finish also with a bitter edge. Mild and light this is a perfectly enjoyable adjunct beer in a style that has not been seen since prohibition.

Serving type: can
