3.64/5 rDev +4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Paired with a ham sandwich. Expectations are low. Reviewed live.
A- Two and a half finger foamy white head. Thick and fluffy. Decent retention. Peaked white lacing that clings high on the glass. Light brown with very high clarity. Looks like a typical California Common but with a nice head.
S- Light grains, the malts are subtle. Grassy. Hoppiness is slight, but rather inviting. Not a very pungent or complex smell at all.
T- Flavor is slightly hoppier than the nose lets on. Some toasted malts and floral, grassy hoppiness. Earthy and richer than the nose.
M- Smooth and well balanced. Wet with a moderately dry finish.
O- Above average. Cool and refreshing with a nice spring hop taste to it.

3.49/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
pours out a murky bronze colour with a thin light tan head. sparse lace. sweet maltiness on the nose with a slight butter and herb accent accented by some grassy notes. the grassy and herbal hop profile carries over to the taste, providing a pleasantly bitter bite that easily balances out the residual sweetness. malt base is meekly sweet showing off a touch of burnt sugar and toasted bread. a fair body for a lower ABV steam beer with a unique mouthfeel that teeters back and forth between sugary sweet and coarsely bitter. nice drinkability. has a session aspect to it.
overall, a rather flavourful brew imbedded within a unique style. sublimely balanced and nuanced. i'd like to sample this on tap.

Had this on tap in standard pint glass at perfect temperature 48-50 degrees
Appearance: beautiful amber color with 1.5-2 finger head.
Smell: Dry hopped, floral, touch of citrus, wheat malt
Taste: touch of mango, with a dry spicy finish. hoppy but very flavorful
Mouthfeel: nice carbonation, good balance.
Overall; definitely a nice spring beer that has a lively taste and a surprising hoppy note.
Serving type: on-tap
