Fresh hop smell and clean peppy taste. Just enough cereal flavor to carry things along.

Found cans at Humble Pie and couldn't pass up a new local coconut beer. After trying one, it's a cereal-y porter. Coconut maybe somewhere? I mean, not bad, but maybe I was expecting more? Maybe I drink too many IPAs so porters are boring?

Mellow, caramel, a touch of barrel or smoke. Finishes yeast-bitter and grassy. A little too bitter for me to love but it’s not boring.
Draft
Very fresh, piney, hopeBut balanced but a hint over on the alcohol flavor.

Good over vanilla ice cream...

Generic, light, lager with hints of apple and a sweet but clean finish. Good for a ballgame though.

Thanks Roy! This was a nice farmy monky-almost ale. A nice way to spend a quarantine Friday.

Fruity with all the bitterness.

This tastes skunky, so I don't know if it's a fair review. It's a fairly clear taste underneath the nastiness at least?
Can at Home
Dry bitter IPA that nevertheless has some of the flavor notes of a juicy IPA.

I second this post but read in your best pretentious theater voice: “Served in a taster at a Flanders Red tasting event. The impressive front-runner, easily going toe-to-toe with Grand Cru and Charactre Rouge. Pours a gorgeous ruby-amber with a respectable head. The nose is the strong balsalmic vinegar of Duchesse, but more balanced with dark fruits and sharp acidity. The palate, similarly, hits the high notes of Duchesse (vinegar galore), but adds further nuance with cherry and other dark fruit notes (akin actually, to Alexander). Med mouthfeel. An incredible beer. Not one I had heard of before the tasting event, and one I was exceedingly excited to try. Stands up to the best of the Flanders Red scene.“
