look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: A medium golden color with a sizable and sticky head which takes some time to disappear.

S: Some serious bread and cornflake smells right up front with citrus (lemon) and something sweet underneath.

T: Very biscuity almost like a ginger snap with a little lemon flavor tucked in there. The taste really took me by surprise as something unique as least among my beer-drinking experiences.

M: Not too carbonated almost watery on the palate which makes it sort of thirst-quenching.

O: I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. The 6.2 ABV goes seemingly unaccounted for as it is very smooth and lacks any strong hops or otherwise alcohol-masking flavors. The flavors that are present are not subtle but still balanced and approachable. I would certainly have this again and again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Clear light golden. Lots of rising bubbles. Decent swath of off white head and lacing.
smell: Slightly pungent, spicy floral and slightly malty sweet. Not terribly impressive nose but pleasant enough.
taste: Not as rich as the nose. Fairly clean and dry. Again, not terribly impressive but pleasant enough.
overall: Back in the day before tasting the explosion of rich brews, this woulda been a primo. dug it but unlikely to seek this out too often.
