On draft from the pub.

Pours a golden hue that is cloudy. Carbonation present. A little head.

Can't observe much smell.

Taste is of hops with malt finishes.

The finish is quite abrupt and bitey. Clears palette quickly and I think it could use more body. Sippable but not much to write home about.

I think this is two in a row bad singles from Saveon. A bit disconcerting. This one poured with large sediment particles. I can't imagine that it was supposed to be like that. The aroma is just slightly skunky but otherwise a nice mix of hoppy and malty.

The taste is also a fairly nice balance of bitter hops and a little bit of malt. There is a little off (infected) taste, but not pronounced. The aftertaste is bitter and also slightly funky.

I think this is a better effort than other Maumee's I've tried (and I have another to try later), but I also think that this was a bad bottle that I was sold on Thursday. That's two bad bottles in the same day. I don't like being a curmudgeon, but I will need to talk to the retailer.
