This won the silver in my opinion out of the 3 brews. Very solid brew, and very drinkable, but there was something off with this one as well, just couldn't pinpoint it. Not the worst, not the best. I expected more from these 2 brews.

L - pours your typical OH haze. Not quite yellow, not fully orange. White, oily head with big, course bubbles.

S - smells of lactose and melon. Orange creamsicle and a hint of the oniony dank. Slight vegetal undertones.

T - definitely getting some of that Bissell dank. Long name with nuclear in it, anyone? Combination of onion, grass. lemon meringue, and OH lemon-lime. All layered with the corner-rounding smoothness of oats and lactose to give it a wholesome, hearty, filling sensation. I think Sabro is known for coconut and while I'm not getting straight nuts, it's more like the playfulness that comes with coconut. Tropical carefree vibes, man. Bit of yeastiness to finish.

F - sticky and saturated. Coats the mouth with low carbonation and velvet creaminess. Ah shit, I said it. Cream. There you go.

O - in the same vein as Butter, this one is low-key with a focus more on feeling than blowing your flavor doors off. Leans more toward BBB with a dash of OH heft. These two definitely work well together.
