2.44/5  rDev -31.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Truncated impressions from a can:

A: Slightly vigorous pour yields a four finger wide head of white colour. Fluffy, with okay thickness and an airy consistency. Not real creamy. Decent froth. Retains well - for about 5-6 minutes. Okay lacing.

Body colour is a clear pale blonde/copper. Thin and weak looking. Watery, almost. Clean; there's no visible yeast particles or hop sediment. Appears overcarbonated.

Sm: Sweet honey, clean barley, nectar, floral hops, blonde malts, lactose, beeswax, buttery character. Sticky and wet. Raw, with low attenuation and plenty of remaining young sugars.

Above average strength aroma. No yeast character or alcohol is detectable.

T: Honey dominates, lending the flavour profile a raw, young feel. Beeswax complements. The foundation is easily intruded upon - clean barley, blonde malts, lactose. It's sweet, probably a bit too much so. Hops offer little bitterness to balance it; I get some mild generic floral character and that's it. Not boozy by any means, nor is it yeasty, but I also wouldn't call it clean.

There isn't much depth of flavour here. It's a rather simple flavour profile of average intensity and duration. There's no real balance per se, but it has so few notes to balance that it still comes across as pretty cohesive. Can't say I'm really liking it all that much for what it is.

Mf: A bit too thick and weighty on the palate considering the relative lack of flavour. Unrefreshing. Overcarbonated. Smooth and wet.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, or astringent.

Mouthfeel does a decent job at suiting the taste.

Dr: Very forgettable stuff. I wouldn't buy this again. The premise sounded interesting when I saw the label in the grocery store, but I guess I was imagining a balanced milk stout, not a half-baked blonde ale. I can't say I'm impressed, and I'll be in no hurry to purchase other Martin House beers in the future. A subpar brew that I'd caution friends against picking up. I'll finish the can without much complaint, and it does hide its ABV okay, but overall this is absolutely well below average.

Straight up 4's for this one, a fine and tasty brew.

Perhaps a bit on the odd side, although not in a bad way, but the milk sugar is notable and different. Otherwise the malty backbone is good, bitterness low, and flavor high.

Drinkability is high, this would be really easy to pound on a hot summer day, although it's also easy to sip and enjoy on a cold day (like today).

Body is fairly thick, finish is sweet milk sugar. Very different and enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pour is lightly hazed bright gold with lots of a thick white head. Nose is heavy grain, cereal and wheat bread, light cream note and some grassy hops. Taste has some whole grain bread up front with a stronger cream note, slightly like cream soda. Cereal is strong in finish, hops faintly herbal and spicy. Medium body with a soft feel and good carbonation.
