Had this on draft at CCB tasting room:

A: Poured a hazy, straw like yellow.
S: Light Pineapple, sweet smell
T: Absolutely amazing. Tastes just like pineapple upside down cake. Light flavor up front but it finished beautifully. Not too sweet, great pineapple, vanilla, and cinnamon flavors.
M: Light and crisp
D: Excellent. My wife and I agree we could drink this all day on the boat or beach. Without a doubt the best lager I have ever had.

Lucky enough to be in the taproom while available at CCB, especially since I'm from New England. The universe works in mysterious ways ... Reviewed from a pint glass.

Beer is a yellow straw color. A faint white foamy 1/4 finger head dissipated quickly and left no lacing. Looks like a typical lager, but then you smell it and ...

Holy deuce, it's a glass of pineapple upside down cake. I mean, I don't know what else to say except it tastes like pineapple upside down cake pureed masterfully into a lager and poured into a pint glass. It tastes just as it smells but also has notes of baking spices like cinnamon and some vanilla. Mouthfeel was right on for a lager, any heavier and it might have felt too much like real pineapple upside-down cake (which gets heavy fast).

Yeah, this was mind blowing. The only thing that kept me from planting myself under the tap and chugging was the fact that I had to drive myself outta there. Well, that and also I don't think the staff would have allowed it either.

Overall, ohmygodwhatdidijustdrink
