On tap at the brewery. I expected a lot. It let me down.

Hazy milk pale. Smells like a lager. Tastes like a lager. It's an over sweet corn syrupy lager substitute.

T: this is a horrible corn lager akin to BMC and worthy of their scorn. No good.

M: Sickly sweet and thin. Ugh.

O: the only Russian River beer I've ever hated. This is absolutely no good. Zero points.

Big thanks goes out to mikesgroove for sharing this one with me! Served from growler into a Victory 'Taste the Victory' shaker. Poured a pale golden yellow with a minimal white head. There was no lacing evident throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, and subtle spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, grain, and subtle spices. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. Nothing on this brew really stood out to me. You could tell what style they were going for and they hit it pretty well, but everything was just a little too muted for my liking. I could see drinking this while sitting out by a pool all day, but if given it the option, it would not be my first choice if other options were available. Glad I got to try something different from the usual Russian River lineup but doubt I would have this one again.

golden pour with loads of carbonation and a little head of white that seems to stick on top for just the slighest bit of time. aroma is light biscuit, hints of grain, touches of light banana an spice. taste is about the same but seems to be just a touch off for me. not the way it is supposed to work for sure. light finish leaves almost no aftertaste and it is over before it began.
