4.5/5  rDev +26.8%

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.

A: Pours a golden body with a thick white head

S: I am picking up a bit of malt and some wheat and a bit of sweetness from the milk sugar.

T: The taste is nice with a decent amount of malt and some nice sweetness.

M: Beer goes down super easy with a nice amount of carbonation.

O: A very solid beer from a brand new brewery.

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.

Pint can poured into a tulip shaped glass.

Huge fan of this beer and my current choice for the running debate between best summer drinkin' blonde ale out of Texas. (Fireman's 4 and Bombshell Blonde were the other two contenders.)

I don't have time for a full review right now, and hopefully will be able to come back and give this more detail, but for now I wanted to say that this beer accomplishes what it sets out to do. Wonderful bready and biscuity flavor balanced with a fairly low bitterness level. Very clean on the nose letting the malt do the talking without being sweet in any way.

Wonderful beer in my opinion.

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.
