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.

Pours a straw yellow, with towering white soapy head, and a cloudy body with plenty of carbonation (Blue Moonish in appearance, but robust). Head fades soon and lacing is nearly absent.
Smells grainy with some spice , malt, bready, slight honey.
That first sip solidifies what I was skeptical about, and that is the cereal flavor this brewery was going for. Low and behold, yes. The milk and everything. The flavor of flakes of grain. The honey is subtle, but plays its role in creating a juicy-malt-mouthfeel. More milky, less medicinal. Impressed. With each sip i take there's a point where that cereal taste briefly pops..it just works. I hope everyone who can get their hands on this picks up that aspect.
Not dry, medium full mouthfeel with ample carbonation, the sugar milk brings sweetness to the grains, and a nice blend at that (4 of them per the can's description). Ive only heard of the "breakfast" concept as far as stouts are concerned, but this one sure lived up to its name. I dont recall ever enjoying grains more than i have with this ale. A new brewery here in TX from what I understand. Nice sized pint cans. Could be a session I suppose. I really enjoyed the profile of this beer. Give it a try.

Lightly hazy golden pour with a dense white one-finger head and medium carbonation. Aroma is sour and bready. Taste is rather smooth with a bit of honey and grain upfront. Medium bodied with a solid and dry malt base with a very strong bread, biscuit and cracker flavors coming through. Has a slight sweet honey edge, as well. Drinks very easy.
