The aromas off of the Lunch Money are light hops and a faint grain like wheat. There is also a faint sweetness. Overall, I wasn’t able to detect much character.
The first few sips are sweet and creamy. My initial take is that this is a hopped pilsner and I had to go back online to confirm the style of beer. The sweet creaminess serves to provide a nice mouthfeel, but I wasn’t able to get much body. As the Lunch Money warms up, there is a slight fruit note coming through.
The hop flavors don’t overrun the beer or provide too much distracting bitterness. The hop flavors come at the end of each sip.
The finish is slightly dry with a faint piney hop flavor.
The body on the Collective Arts Brewing Lunch Money is just too thin. There’s no sweetness or ale-like quality carrying the beer. The hops provide some nice body and serve as the only notable standout from an otherwise lackluster experience. This is the first beer from Collective Arts that has been a disappointment.
