Can "DEPOSITED 05/17/16"

Dark golden color with a good-sized creamy white head. Sweet grain, grass, and slight corny vegetables in the nose. Better flavor: tasty cereal grain, noble hops, nuts, bread. Light, crisp, and clean. Better on tap.

On tap at churchkey. Served cold as they do these type of beers in america to just get a hit of hops but not truly the style, just tastes like a fair ipa. Clean, light.

3.84/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives clear and golden, with a frothy head appropriate to the style

Smell: Crackery and slightly sweet, with grassy tones

Taste: Cracker malt, up front, with a nod in the direction of graham sweetness; grassy hop flavors add balance, in the middle, but the finish verges on the sweeter side

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body; moderately crisp carbonation

Overall: A pleasant drinker and went great with the BBQ that was served for the Triangle Land Conservancy fundraiser; I would like to taste a bit stronger hop profile, though

On tap in Greenville SC.

Excellent looks: clear amber body with a proportionate creamy off-white head that has partial retention and that leaves spots and streaks of sticky lacing.

Weird aroma suggests some wild yeast or contamination.

Flavor: Mild bitterness. Better and sweeter than the aroma suggests, but faint off notes. Notably off style with rather mild hop notes and with striking sweetness up front.

Medium+ carbonation with a soft feel in a medium-light body

Good beer. Didn't make me say "wow" but it was a good compliment to BBQ and viable.
