Jadyn and I went to the Muddy on Friday December 5th with some friends. They kicked the keg of Buzzard's Bay Black and put on a new keg of He'Brew Genesis Ale.Link

Pours a cloudy amber. Topped by a thick, fluffy, beige head. Leaves sheets of lace on the side of the glass. The head retains very well. The aroma is sugary and malty: caramel and cherry notes. There are also citric and piney hop aromas.

Sugar, caramel and tart fruit are present through the center. The finish is citric, piney hops with a light bitterness. A little watery with mild carbonation. Upping the carbonation would help give things a little more body.

I thought that this was a likable beer. The flavors were nice, but the lack of carbonation and body made it seem a bit thin and watery.
