Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a very lightly hazed golden-orange color with a tiny white head. The head fades instantly leaving no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of a bready and malty smell mixed with tons of honey and a decent showing of a milky smell. Along with these aromas comes some smells of cereal, being a mix of oatmeal and some smells of corn pops and life. Along with these smells comes a bit of peach and melon. Overall a very strange but sort of inviting smell.
Taste – The tastes begins with a sweet and lightly grainy and bready tastes with lots of honey and some flavors of a light fruit tastes of peach and apricot. As the taste advances some oat like flavors as well as a bit of milk comes to the tongue. The milk flavor grows stronger in nature as the taste advances and is joined by more flavors of a cereal nature with tastes of cheerios and oatmeal coming to the tongue. At the end some powdered sugar and melon come to the tongue, leaving one with a sweet and cereal breakfast taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is normal. Overall a decent feel for the odd abut interesting mix of flavors and makes it easy drinking and enjoyable.
Overall – A very strange mix of flavors here. Sort of like taking your bowl of cereal and blending it with some fruit, but all in a good way. I actually really liked this brew. Well worth a try if you get the chance.

Advertised as a golden stout. Hazy golden body with a finger head that leaves lacing. Sweet grains make up the entire aroma. Taste delivers beyond the nose with biscuity malt, honey, and a little bit of esthers coming into the picture. Medium-high body and medium carbonation. Probably over carbonated.
It'd have to be something I'd be in the mood for. It'd work as a breakfast beer or could be paired with dessert food. A little bit sweeter than nose or description gives away.

Hazy amber in color. Malty aroma. Flavorful but not assertive. Sweet and bready, very slightly citrusy, hardly bitter at all. Very smooth and pleasant.

Very approachable, yet complex enough to be rewarding.

Creamy—very creamy—yet balanced bitterness and carbonation.

I want to say, "It's not just for breakfast anymore!"

Martin House Day Break blonde. 16 oz pint on tap at the Flying Saucer in Ft Worth.

The beer is a chill hazed gold with pretty impressive lacing.

The beer has an aroma of malts, grains/oats and some floral notes.

It is mild blond with a slight twist. As expected, not overly hopped and there are nice caramel malt notes. The twist is the sweetness and slight nuttiness from the oats (I think that's what they are).

The mouth is fine for what it is.

Always glad to try some local options when traveling. This one went well with my food.
