Pours a bright and clear gold color with a creamy thick nitro head. Certainly looks inviting.

Aromas are faint, bready, creamy, and light tea leaves.

Taste is creamy, sweet, and bready. Some tea notes, and mineral like bitterness on the finish. Pretty simple tasting, but has an odd adjuct like sweetness that detracts a bit.

Mouthfeel is smooth but thin.

Overall, a simple drinkable beer. Not very memorable or something I'd look forward to drinking again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 2

Poured from a nitro-can into a mug.

A - Color of a golden coin with an amazing creamy, three-finger, perfectly white foamy head. Looks inviting enough.

S - Almost odorless, but what little aroma exists is kind of a "stale beer" odor. Smells of adjucnts. Not appealing at all.

T - Cloying dexrtin sweetness followed by earthy stale hops. Astringent chemical aftertaste reminiscent of dish soap and formaldehyde. Zero depth or complexity. Phenols became even more present as it warmed. One word...BAD.

M - Smooth creamy, silky, mouthfeel. Nice and full bodied, but it doesnt make up for the poor taste.

O - A nice appearance and mouthfeel, but thats about the only redeeming qualities here this beer. Adjuncts abound. A struggle to finish. I have craft beer drinking friends that enjoy this one. Maybe I am missing something.
