3.33/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
P: Crystal clear golden body with steaming effervescence and a small thin layer of fading white head.
S: As expected the nose is full of skunky aroma but does still have faint notes of toasted caramel, canned dog food, subtle spicy hops.
T/M: Prickly medium body that follows the nose but the flavors are more toasted malts and powdery yeast rather than the overpowering skunk funk in the nose. Sour apples, and citrus bitterness to compliment the sweet caramel and malt base. Finish is semi dry and clean that lingers apple peels and citrus bitterness. Subtle lactic acid tartness shows up once warmed.
O: The smell was pretty awful and I was expecting to hate this buy it turned out the taste was much better than the nose. The flavors worked well together and the mouthfeel was pretty good.

Another beer I'm shocked I haven't gotten around to reviewing.
On tap at The Seehund. Pours a translucent light amber color with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is malty with some honey, sweet bread, caramel and floral hop notes. The taste is floral hops followed by the malts. Caramel and honey towards the end with a bit of floral hops. Medium bodied. Overall, great representation of the style.
