The Floppin Crappie is a nice sessionable beer. The beer poured a nice amber with thin white head that is lacing nicely. There is not much scent to this beer....subtle hints of sweet malt...that is about it. The taste is a very even balanced beer....the malt provides a sweet back drop and there is enough bittering hops to balance the sweetness to make it very pleasant. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer.

A wonderfully delicious treat that may make you flop like a crappie after your first 6pack. A delightful change to your regular beer or a viable option if you are looking for a new daily drinker. Don't be surprised if you are throwing POWs after just a couple. Definitely a thumbs up.

Picked up a single at Woodmans in Wisconsin. Poured into a pint glass.

Amber colored with active bubbles. Fluffy thick white foam, like snow banks. Light sweet malt nose. Nutty and bready. Light toffee malt taste, evolving hop that never takes hold. Touch sweet. Caramel close. Light carbonation, considering the bubbles. Not bad.

Reviewed from session notes.

A. Clear light brown in color with another flash/fizzle head and no lacing.

S,T. Light toasted bready malts through and through. Stays mildly sweet just like eating handfuls of malt for a crunchy snack. Garnish levels of yeast spice and grassy hopping do exist but are difficult to pick out of the mix until the glass warms up some.

M. Still seems somewhat thin but that's actually appropriate for the style this time. And for once the carbonation is actually adequate on the palate, despite the disappointing head.
