A "raw ale", brewed with Egyptian heirloom barley. Tried on-tap at the brewery in Denver.

Pours a pleasant, very hazy straw colour, deeper in colour in the thick parts, with a fine ring of white foam for a head. No lacing. Body has a bit of weight behind it. Looks decent.

Nose has a slight tartness to it, mixed with a savoury-sweet character like ketchup. More pleasant notes come through as well, in weird combinations. I get toasted sourdough, white pepper and lemonade. It's very pleasant.

Taste is similar. There's a nice lemonade sweetness to it, backed by a savoury bass note—crackers and dip. There's a blightness on the back which gives black pepper and salty cheese muffins.

Feel is bright on the entry, but with weight coming in behind it.

Overall, I rate it. It's a nice brew, well put together, with enough twisted interest to make it weirdly worthwhile.
