Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Overall: good, but a little odd. Oceanic. I agree with the sentiment I've seen that this would be better paired with food.

Pale yellow, nice sudsy head with excellent retention and lacing, hazy.
Smells bright, citrusy, and briny. Oddly enough, there's a shellfish-like aroma.
Tastes grassy upfront. A little peppery. Maybe spicy. There's a wheat-like twang followed by a malty finish. A spiced bitterness builds as you drink it. Doesn't taste like Old Bay exactly, but I'm guessing that's where it's coming from.

MDATE: July 8, 2017... OCCASION: at Gil and Becky’s shore house for the weekend, enjoying a beautiful day... GLASSWARE: Jersey Shore pint (paid for in Jenks tickets last year)...pours a light golden body with sparse effervescence from a growler... head is white, swirling, and quickly out of its juice... definite peppercorn, mustard, clove, ginger and allspice cocktail... the inhalation is enjoyable, if accurate... first sip is medium-bodied, lightly textured, but overall swift in its draw... the finish lingers with the weight of caramel and bread malts... the "old bay" makes for a ginger and allspice, while lemon and orange peel suggest a pale ale hides somewhere in here... applaud the idea to introduce these elements into a beer... willing to attempt a pairing with dogs, burgers and fries... as a stand alone, reasonable and not outside the realm of enjoyable....

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

This beer pours golden with a slight haze. It is topped with two inches of eggshell head that leaves a little lacing.

It has a light lemony aroma with hints of umami.

The tastes starts with that lemony ale flavor and is then infused with bitterness. The seasoning comes through in the finish.

Medium mouthfeel

I really don't get much from the Old Bay seasoning. It is reminiscent of Sam Adams Summer Ale. It is ok. I don't think that I will buy more than this single bottle though.

Fizzy yellow appearance. Generic beer aroma. Tastes like cheap beer with salt sprinkled in. No taste of Old Bay.

What a delightful mosaic of flavors. If I were a cookout kind of gal I would certainly consider serving this brew.

Pours a cloudy, gold color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight wheat, hops, herbs (Old Bay), floral, and slight sweet malt. Fits the style of an Herbed / Spiced Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of Old Bay, wheat, pale malt, slight sweet malt, and a hint of hops. Overall, Old Bay dominates every aspect, decent appearance, and pleasant freshness.
