look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pint on tap at Tully's NY - for 4.50$
Appearance - Clear gold colour with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent l acing. The head lasted for 2-3 minutes.
Smell - Breads/grains, hops, caramel, grassiness
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn mixed with some malts and grains. There is also some hops and a it of a mustiness mixed with very light grapefruit. It ends with a malty slightly bitter aftertaste.
Overall - With the limited selection of beer to choose from, this one was okay.. there were hints of a flavourful APA at time but it's a little too muted and musty for me to want to drink again.
Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle w/o freshness info of any sort to be had.
Pours caramel and lightly hazed. Very minor head, next to no film/collar/lace.
Meh kinda nose of more caramel smellin' malts...
Herbal tea hops, caramel malts, not loving much about this one.
Not really coming together for me. Bordering on unpleasant to drink.
