Growler received in trade with kbeals with great thanks and appreciation for the hard work Kevin went through to get this growler to me.
A - Pours a hazy brownish amber color with a thin wisp of foam that dies fairly quickly and leaves behind just an extremely thin collar around the glass.
S - Smell is pretty light overall - very mild limey citrus and some creamy fluff-like marshmallowy quality. Wish there was a bit more here...but what is here is good.
T - If there was any doubt before tasting, there isn't any more. There is an unmistakable tart, sour citrusy lime flavor that sits way up front. Almost like beer mixed with some limeade. Then there is the graham crackers...blends together with the fruit perfectly. Layered with some vanilla'y marshmallows too. I get next to zero grain/malt flavors and same thing with hops...but who cares, this tastes great.
M - Somewhat thin in body, but definitely not watery. Carbonation is light with a smooth creaminess to it that works really well. Graham crackers sit well into the aftertaste.
D - A great summer time session beer. I could sit with this beer all day long and be totally content. A very unique and interesting beer. Shorts - please bottle this one! If you can get a hold of this one, definitely give it a shot.
