Had on tap at the Corner Slice in Greensboro last night.Poured into a standard pint glass a clear light golden color with a nice looking sticky one finger bone white head atop.Toasted malts mainly in the nose,a hint of sweetness but not much.Crisp feel and toasted crisp flavors with a bit of iron as well on the palate.It's light and I didn't expect much but it went down real easy.

3.03/5  rDev -5.6%

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into and pint glass. The label lists the abv at 4.4% and there is a short description of the beer on the back.

Appearance: The body has a nice clear golden yellow color with about a finger thick white head on top. The head faded quickly leaving a nearly naked beer in the glass.

Smell: In the nose I get a mild grassy hop presence with a slight touch of lemony citrus hops and very light sour dough bread notes as well.

Taste/Palate: Bombshells flavor starts with a base of sourdough bread like maltiness with a thin grassy and flat earthy hop presence for balance. I also picked up some light toasted notes and even a very slight oxidized flavor in the finish.

Notes: Overall this one just didn’t impress me.
