Notes: Collaboration with Heater Allen Brewing

Born of memoirs and modernity. A 90 degree turn on the American beers we once pilfered from our fathers. Made with the lagermavens of Heater Allen Brewing from North Carolina malted corn and German barley with a cadre of noble-esque American hops. Lagered to brilliant presentation. A Damn fine time.

3.74/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: It pours yellow with a bit of cloudiness to it. The head is white and head retention is very good.

Smell: It has grainy sweet aromas with pepper and honey. It is a bit flowery as well.

Taste: It is grainy sweet with honey and a bit of lemon. There is very light flowery elements in the background.

Feel: It has a medium light body with a balance towards the sweetness in the aftertaste.

Overall, it is an easy drinking, honey oriented lager beer.

3.88/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down a bit and consistently left a short head covering the surface along with lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of corn adjuncts are present in the nose along with hints of floral hops.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of corn along with notes of pale malts. Some sweetness from the corn tries to peek through from a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied, clean, and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked how this beer combined the corn with the rest of the malt bill as it didn’t taste that adjuncty.

4.04/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a relatively clear medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint medium golden yellow + straw yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger sudsy foamy white head that reduces to a handful of small patches of thin film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Just shy of moderate aromas of bready + biscuit malts with a light amount of corn adjuncts and a light amount of grainy + corn adjunct sweetness. Light to moderate aromas of spicy + grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of bready + biscuit malts with a light amount of corn adjuncts and a light amount of grainy + corn adjunct sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of spicy + grassy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away leaving a clean finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a crisp + clean + refreshing mouthfeel. Enjoyable and definitely a beer that I would happily drink many times in the heat of summer. Perfect beer for after a run on a hot summer afternoon/evening.

Clear yellow straw under a thick persistent head of lumpy white foam. Fresh lagery aromas of white bread and low-key leafy hop spice. Simple, clean, tasty lager flavor...light fruitiness, floral noble-ish hops, cut grass, bread crust. Medium-light and crisp. Tasty!
