look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Very fresh nose with a pretty attractive foamy glossy ricky head. Herbally trace to the taste with an almost light tannic finish. To the eye ressembles ginger ale with a reasonable inner core. Solid summer beer. No pretentions but quality throughout. Very good for what it is.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dated 01/15.

Appearance: Amazing clarity and a golden color. Fluffy three-finger white head with decent retention. A few tiny bubbles cascade upwards from the base of the glass.

Aroma: Great bready malt. Some dryness, very clean.

Taste: Not as grainy as the aroma led me to believe. Some bitterness from the hops as well as some interesting yeast esters. Somewhat dry with a smooth finish. Aftertaste is a tad cloying due to dryness bready malt flavor that lingers on the palate. I expected a little more hop flavor, there is really just a hint of bitterness. A flash of sweetness comes across during the initial taste.

Mouthfeel: Between thin and medium in body with smooth carbonation and easy drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Not quite as great as I was hoping given the freshness and dark bottle. A good example of the style and worth a try if you are a fan of the style. Nothing special but far and above adjunct swill on the market. Would I drink it again? On a hot day.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a thin head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is dry grain with some lemon. Mild.
The taste has a grain flavor as well with some mild bitterness. Pretty tame.
The texture is fizzy with moderate carbonation.
It's fine but lacks any distinguishing characteristics.
