Can dated 10-02-2018 into pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a miniscule off-white head. Initial impression is a a subtle mix of caramel sweetness, citrus, bready malts, and a refreshing tartness. It's not an IPA, it's certainly not a sour, it's more than a lager. Mouthfeel is medium and almost sticky. Finish is slightly bitter.

Yet another excellent offering from FO. This will be my 13th from them, and they never fail to impress me.

Headline: A young brewer specializing in hazy IPAs attempts an obscure, clear lager style and does a pretty good job.

Had on tap. Looks average, tho clear for being unfiltered.
Smells also average, but neither too malty, nor too much floral/grassy hops. Balanced.
Tastes provide a nice malt fore-palate with the hops playing background music which is commendable even for a hazy iPA purveyor. Finishes crisp and clean. A good, balanced lager.

Had with maligatwany soup and it cleared the palate fine. Soothed it, in fact, for another sinus-clearing spoonful.

My first from Foreign Objects, so I went on their website and am greeted with the most philosophical and downright heavy mission statement I have ever seen from a brewer. But they obviously are thoughtful and serious about their craft. They claim to make Belgians, but none are on the 33 listed by BA. But when one of their Belgians makes it to Chicago, I will be glad to try it.

Rich, bready, slightly floral & herbal, and smooth as hell. Earthy aftertaste with a touch of bitterness. But incredibly well balanced.
