3.7/5 rDev +7.9%
On-tap 6/23/2013 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered mug glass.
A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains lager yeast, light caramelized malts and some hops.
T: The taste starts out with a quick burst of malt sweetness followed by a very strong lager yeast breadiness that dominates. The hops presence is mild but brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.
M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.
O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent sessionable beer to drink for a long time.

16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Presents a light yellow body with good clarity and a 1/3-inch, snow white head.
Smell: Notes of yeasty dough, sweet-scented morningtime cereal, and a snippet of dried herbs with a light, transient hint of a well-used CoinStar machine.
Taste: Sweetish cereal maltiness rounded out by some stale dough at the start with some minor hop accents giving a hint of dried herb. Hmm. Make that very minor hop accents. Even using the word "accent" is a overdoing it a bit. Small little hint of metal that, for me, totally kills the already deficient taste. Less-than-crisp, dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: Estaminet is lacking in all but its price.

Best before 2/13/14.
Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, corn, and grassy aromas. There is a bit of a skunk smell as it is being poured but none once it is settled in the glass. Taste is much the same with grain and slight grassy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but nothing all that special in my opinion.

Crystal clear bright golden 2 finger bright white clingy head. Clean grainy nose.
Flavor wise a little bland, I wanted to like this because I like palm but it's a little boring. Definitely better than a Stella though. Sweet malty grains, medium bodied with a slight creaminess, faint hop bitterness tries to balance fruity sweetness. Carbonation is lower than expected. It is an extremely clean drinking beer so I always enjoy nice clean flavors. But otherwise pretty lackluster. Better then stella still.

Draft, Toronado. Served in a branded glass. Looks kinda like a gueze glass. Pours a bright, golden shade of yellow. Perfectly clear. Medium head which seems pretty good for a cold pour to the brim. Very white. Very fine bubbles. Good lacing. Aroma is a bit light on hops but there's a fresh, pleasant grain character. It's sweet and a bit doughy. The hops provide a little lemon and grass in the background. The taste starts sweet with pale malt. A bit more of that doughy, bready flavor. Nice lager yeasty note in the middle. Picks up some apple flavor which I don't love. That apple cider flavor lasts into the finish which could use a touch more hops. What's there is lemony. Mouthfeel is light but somewhat creamy. Gentle effervescence. Good pils but not fantastic.
