Best Quote During Tasting
It wasn't weird until he asked if I was the one who licked it.
|Aroma - The overall aroma is of a malty graininess. Some bread crust and even a faint nuttiness are mixed in as well. There aren't any hops to be found and the yeast is clean and not very perceptible.|
|Appearance - The beer is a completely clear bronze that when poured, has a tall cream colored head made up of large bubbles. Those bubbles quickly recede leaving no trace of a head on top of the beer.|
|Flavor - My first sip was crisp and lacked big flavor so I let it sit for a few minutes. When I came back to it, the flavors were much easier to pick up. There was light caramel, some toastiness and big bread crust. Chocolate was there but small and the hops are slightly spicy. There wasn't anything that really popped but all of the flavors worked well together.|
|Mouthfeel - The body is thin and the carbonation is medium+. It's incredibly crisp but the body isn't big enough to carry the malts.|
Overall Impression - On a summer day or on warmer fall weather, this beer would hit the spot when it's fresh out of the cooler. As we get later in the year, this one won't hold up due to its thinner body. It's crisp and clean but again, nothing stood out. The balance was nice and I would probably get another pint after ordering one at a bar but it's not going to make its way into my fridge rotation.
