Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a one finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave a very light level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is light and is of a bready smell mixed with a light caramel smell.

Taste – The taste begins of a malty breadiness mixed with a light caramel flavor. As the flavor advances some lighter earthy and herbal hops and a corn sweetness come to the tongue. These flavors mix with the bread and caramel to take the taste to its end.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light with a higher level of carbonation. It makes it rather drinkable and is good for the style.

Overall – OK, but nothing special here.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12oz bottle pours a clear yellow to copper color with a tan film across the top. Spotty lace sticks to the glass as the cap fades. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain a thin film.

The aroma is quite muted to the point where hardly some caramel grain sweetness is noticed. As it warms up, there is a faint buttery note. I dont pick up on any yeast, hop or alcohol elements at all.

The taste includes a mild bready grain flavor with a hint of fruity to citris hops. While it is very mild in flavor i am actually surprised to taste something other than the straight caramel grain that was the sole charcteristic of the aroma.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is crisp and easy drinking but really a mild brew even for the style. I would be hard pressed to find any real reason to return to this brew.

Enjoyed while at the brewery. Review from notes.

A: thin head on a clear bright golden with slight copper hue body.

S: breads, gingerbread, light orange citrus and lightly toasted caramel malts.

T: toasted caramel malts with a touch of spicy and herbal hops mostly in the finish.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbontion.

Overall: Drinkable like so many beers from this brewery however just not that imaginative and obviously made for the masses.

Serving type: on-tap
