In A Daze Hase : Aroma & Taste
In A Daze Hase poured out a slightly dark golden yellow colour with a thin amount of white head on top that faded fast to leave a few bubbles around the side of the glass. In A Daze Hase didn’t have that much of a strong aroma – with some nutty aromas coming through with an appropriate level of diacetyl for this style of beer. Not enough to be overpowering or off-putting but enough that you know. In terms of hops, there was a faint floral aroma but that was only really noticeable once In A Daze Hase had warmed up.
The body started off with a nutty and crisp flavour to the beer, with the diacetyl noticeable, but not overpowering, too. In A Daze Hase didn’t really have that much of a bitterness either, perhaps a short, sharp flavour but nothing that would be considered strong. The flavours didn’t develop into anything more in-depth as In A Daze Hase warmed up either.
In A Daze Hase : The Bottom Line
In A Daze Hase is ok, I guess. Maybe a warm weather beer
