From Warners - at Staff recommendation.

Pours hazy gold, a one finger head appears with a very aggresive pour. Little lace.

Aromas of very little. Seriously. This beer does not smell, and I do not have a cold.

Taste starts in APA territory with some citrus, then into Coopers Pale/Aussie Pale Ale territory with pear flesh, then veers into PoR metallic territory, after that we veer toward the Dark Side into dulled earthy tastes. Most akin to Grand Ridge disasters with that same dull aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is ok, a bit light on carbonation.

Dear dear, these guys are start up and proud, but something is wrong. This is fetid and rank. My first ever drain pour. This pains me to write a revew such as this. I will try again, but hopefully on tap. Must be a bottling issue.

Hazy golden colour. Small white head. Poor head retention.

Light grainy sweet malt aroma with some earthy hops. Light fruitiness. Okay but nothing special.

Light malt with a moderate bitterness. Slightly harsh. No prominent hop flavour. Mild acetaldehyde.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite dry.

A simple beer and it seems to be a little pointless in my book. Not really sure why they bother.
