Nice bright golden ale, aroma was of malts and yeast. Flavor was malt accented with a twang of hops and maybe Belgian yeast to make it refreshing. Light-bodied and very much a summer crusher beer with decent flavor and low bitterness. FYI ABV on can was 4.9%

Crisp cream ale with hint of floral hops mixed with some Belgian funk from yeast with slightly metallic finish. A refreshing beer but nothing special

a tasty but unconventional cream ale, pulling elements from a number of different styles it seems like. sweet almost corny malt base is sort of american adjunct lager style, for sure, but there there is also a brilliant hop complexion, as subtle as it is, its unique, but it stands out, and thats very american pale or something, but it also hinges on the edge of kolsch, with this really low abv and super refreshing blonde ale type overall vibe. i think is a very successful fusion too, as these styles often never come together, at least not this way. a very refreshing beer, with effervescent carbonation. it has some leftover sweetness though, and it hurts what i love about it. black abbey was the one place i wanted to go more than anywhere else on my trip, and i didnt make it, so this was the closest i got. their taproom looks awesome, and although this beer is pretty good, it middles compared to other stuff they do, and i want more. next time i am in nashville, i am going here for sure. i wish they didnt keep such weird hours though...

Light, bland, unremarkable.

Pours clear light yellow with a slight white head. Aroma is sweet and doughy plus a touch spicey from what I figure is belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet, doughy and a touchy spicey, again from the yeast, and a touch of minor earthy or grassy hops. This one needs to do away with the sweetness because it pretty much killed the beer for me. A weak, somewhat active mouthfeel. Overall , can't say I really enjoyed this one. I had no issue downing my pint but I wouldn't want to order this again.
