Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a pretty clear deep straw color with a good sized tightly bubbled white head that recedes to form a cap on top. Aromas of bready and light caramel malts with a solid floral spicy hop to counter. The flavor is rich sweet bready malts with a bit of earthy spicy hops. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Wow I really enjoyed this beer! Extremely clean, simple, but quite flavorful at the same time.

On tap at Claddaghs

Appearance: pale golden straw color with a one finger white head

Smell: funky malt, lemon zest, grassy

Taste: funky malts upfront with a lemony hop finish

Mouthfeel: Light body with a bitter finish

Overall: Nothing to write home about. I found this to be quite funky with the hops not even able to mask it. I typically enjoy everything Victory does, but this is an exception. I'm gonna pretend I never had this offering. I'll stick to blonde women instead
