16 oz. can poured into nonic
(canned on 6/3/14 -- sticker on plastic 4-pack "ring")

L: murky yellow-gold, tons of sediment ... looks almost like a Belgian quad, that sandy-jello look; percolates nicely but only pushes up 1/3-inch head of white foam; no stick or lace; for a blonde ale = ugly

S: grain bomb -- sour grain, cooking rice, milo, corn, wheat ... can smell a bit of the honey and a bit of the sweetness

T: sweeter than the nose ... a full-on assault of grain sweetened nicely -- it's like a bowl of cereal with beer in it ... so much sugary grain; at times you get just a hint of wheat in there with the rice and maize and corn (unpopped popcorn kernels), the wheat offering a slight fruity twang

F: solid all around, good carbonation

O: all I had to do was read the can to know I'd love this brew ... I mean, a grain bomb with sugar in it? come on! that's cheating. it's great-tasting and super drinkable with decent aroma notes. and who says you can only add sugar to stouts? it's a milk blonde ale, and it's super good. it's also a smart move by Martin House, brewing a beer too sweet to deny. everybody will love it.

16 oz can poured into imperial pint glass.

A - Pours a semi-clear golden yellow with 3 fingers of creamy white head.

S - There is an intense aroma of sweet honey followed by some bready grains.

T - Honey is the most prominent flavor to me, with a good grainy and bready malt backbone. I also get a good amount of the milk sugar, which lends it a taste similar to that of milk stouts. This is sweet and easy drinking, and I can definitely see how this is a breakfast beer.

M - Thin-to-moderate body with moderate-to-high carbonation. Despite the large amount of carbonation, this is still creamy. There is a lot of honey and milk sugar in the aftertaste.

O - I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this beer, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's very easy drinking, and the honey and milk sugar make it very distinctive. I could see myself drinking this for breakfast more often.

Tallboy can poured into an English pint glass. It pours a clear gold with a white head that can't decide if its going to be creamy or frothy. The head settles down to a thin layer of bubbles with a ring around the edge. The smell is oats, brown bread, and sort of fruit loops. Definitely a breakfast beer. Taste is a shot of citrus then really strong kind of sourdough bread. That flavor kicks hard at the end and you just get walloped with sort of corn flakes sort of bread, a bit metallic...hmmm. Just way too much for me. The mouthfeel is creamy but carbonated. Overall, this may be the breakfast of champions, but its not my breakfast. Just too assertive grain stuff going on. I like the attempt, I like the creativity, I do not like the beer.
