What the brewers say

“Light and crushable with flaked maize, black malt, Noble hops.”

What our panel thought

“Opens with the aroma of a freshly cracked can of cola (with a hint of clove) in the fresh, damp undergrowth of a deep forest. A beautiful ride that includes a piney spritz and warmed graham cracker from the heat of a recently toasted marshmallow. Finishes dry and bitter.”

What our editors thought

“Slightly sweet corn note in the aroma with deeper toasted-bread and light lime highlights. Light tannic malt structure in the sip adds a pleasing spice to the deeper roast bitterness, while very light citrus and floral top notes offer an inviting character. Finishes cleanly and quickly, with a touch of lingering tannin more than bitterness.”
