On-tap at Bruery Provisions

A: The beer pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head sitting on top.

S: Smells strange...a weird spice/herb note to it (especially as it warms up) that hints at sage. Lots of orange peel aroma and a slight mustiness to it. Some pale malt and bread are also there.

T: The flavor is not all that much better. A mild sweetness of bread and some light floral notes. Grassy and mildly bitter hops with a heavy orange peel flavor. The flavor is sort of watery, though.

M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation.

O: Overall really boring and meh. I wouldn't bother having this again.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a quite hazy goldenrod, with a firm white head leaving soapy lace.

S: I get some herbal character and then it gets yeasty, kind of a cotton candy and bubblegum play. Smells like a hypothetical hefe/pale ale hybrid. Nice smell, just out of place.

T: Definite grainy malt notes, light hopping, some pine and grass. Some carbonic acid character in the finish. Quite light.

M: Light-bodied, thin at points, fairly smooth.

O: I like a good session beer as much as the next guy, but this wasn't really doing it. Not a bad beer, but nothing that makes me want to take another sip.
