3.01/5  rDev -12.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

P: Milky pale golden body with a frothy white cap an inch tall. Micro bubble lacing creating cascading stairs.

S: Aroma is similar to a salon giving permanents. Moldy wheat, honey, coriander, pilsner malt, basement yeast and clove.

T/M: Taste us similar to the aroma with a distinct metallic taste and lots of earthy flavors. Old dusty furniture and attic/basement ambience. Easy drinkability that would make a nice session that doesn't have cloying yeast presence. Bubbly carbonated moderate feel that finishes semi dry with a timid sting of spiced bananas.

O: I can't get the image of an old lady salon out of my head when drinking this beer. Not a winning seasonal but a decent offering to session. I wanted to like this but it's too safe and lacks creativity.
