2.83/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Pour is a little uncontrollable and the whole pint glass is filled with raging bubbles that finally settle in a 2 finger head that is the creamiest looking I've ever seen. It's so smooth it almost looks lie cream cheese. Body is a nice dark color and it's pretty clear.

The nose is sticky sweet malts and it even smells creamy.

Very light sweet malts which give quick impression of sugar and lemon and maybe a touch of honey. This is one of the simplest beers I've ever had. A bit of cream plays along, but there;s not even a hint of hops. Sweet creamy and very clean.

Mouthy is hinting at creamy but manages only to present a watery thinness.

There's really not much flavor, and yet there is a measure of "drinkability". I don't mind it--it's good even, but it's pretty unimpressive. I wish it had a bit more to offer. I do think for a nice hot day it might be a real nice departure from the usual crisp and hoppy beers. Goodish-not great.

Serving type: nitro-can
