3.8/5 rDev +3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12 oz. bottle poured into mug
(bottled on Sept. 23, 2013; drank on 12/4/13)
L: orange-red ... or gold; crystal clear; 1/4-inch head of white to off-white foam, no stick from the head or no lacing; very nice collar; beautiful copper/amber looking at it with no light behind it but gold/orange with no amber up to light
S: yeasty and fruity; sweet bread; hint of grassy hops; lots of grain
T: super sweet and fruity, yeasty -- peaches; some grain; reminds me at times of sunny delight or orange juice; like the nose, just a hint of grassy (or spicy) hops
F: big carbonation, very light ... very drinkable
O: a perfect summer beer and a solid session beer at 4.2% ABV ... the beer I had was about 2 1/2 months old, and it was still quite good, perhaps a bit peachy but still very good. it's good enough that i'll look for a fresh 6-pack at some point. a solid brew that's easy drinking

A: on tap into a 22 oz mug at Applebee's after I orders a Moo-hoo and they fucked it up, amber colored with a medium white head that lingers leaving some lacing, clear
S: light smell of caramel and hops, not much
T: slight bitter hops up front, middle is a bit of malt, flavor is generic
M: medium to thin with high carbonation
O: I'm uninterested. I've had a bad night.
