In A Daze Bonding Flux : Aroma & Taste
In A Daze Bonding Flux poured out a light golden straw colour, with a touch of chill haze to the beer, and a very thin amount of white head on top that faded to a few bubbles around the side of the glass. The aroma wasn’t strong, with a touch of light pilsner malt aroma, followed by some lemongrass aroma with a touch of straw to it. A very simple, yet clean, aroma from In A Daze Bonding Flux.
The body started off with a simple pilsner bite to it – nothing overpowering or surprising really – which segued into some light hoppy lemongrass flavour. The body was dry, and had a crisp malt bite to it, though none of the flavours really lasted or lingered for much more than a second. The aftertaste was a dry lemony flavour, though it too faded fast.
In A Daze Bonding Flux : The Bottom Line
In A Daze Bonding Flux is a nice beer for someone getting into craft beer but it is overpriced for what it is.
