Picked up a bomber at the 4F, evidently they're only getting out to a few places around the brewery. Had a few sips out of a growler a while back & liked it, so, here we are.

Split into two pint glasses on a quiet Wednesday evening. Looks watery golden. Smells like a field of damp grains - with a bad case of mold. Something off in the nose; like unidentified leftovers gone bad in the fridge. Definitely don't recall that from the first time.

Provider's flawed nose doesn't carry over to the taste, which is better. Again with the grains, hazed wet hops, white bread, sliver of orange. All subtle, all quiet, subdued. But the taste takes a hit from the nose which has to be endured with each sip.

Not sure if this is an off-bottle or not, but the nose really brings this down. Fix that & this would be a solid ale.
