2.35/5  rDev -35.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint glass. No bottled date.

(A)- Pours an amber color that produces a good sized off-white head that dissipated fairly quick. Some minimal lacing.

(S)- Ample sweet malts with a strong hop/pine aroma. Some minerality.

(T)- Tons of pine with sweet malts. Nothing really coming through except pine and a sugar sweetness in taste and smell. Slightly dry finish.

(M)- Good carbonation level, but has a rather lackluster body and flavor profile; there's just nothing much present.

(D)- A rather boring beer that just doesnt have alot going for it. Its so simple and basic that is boring/bland. Its like its hoppy just to be hoppy and sweet amber malts just because.

3.63/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Clearance shelf, no clue of age.

Pours a brilliant copper with a frothy cream head that leaves sheets of lacing as it slowly dissipates.

Sharp citrus, resin, and sweet, bready, toasted caramel malt form the aroma. There's a bit of floral hop character at the finish.

Flavor is dominated by toasted, bready malt, slightly sweet caramel, which finishes a bit resiny and bitter. Tart, indescernible citrus adds contrast.

Body is a bit watery, with slightly low carbonation adding to the watery character. There's a little slickness that lingers.

Good malt character, albeit a bit too dominant. The flavoring hops are somewhat one-note. Bitterness is too high for my liking.

3.85/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear medium amber with a slight red hue. Nice head with ample lacing that retains well. Nose is of mild pine and citrus hops over caramel. Light medium body with a somewhat smooth texture. Above average carbonation level with a nice bit of effervescence. The flavor profile is well balanced, but not very complex. It begins with citric and pine hop flavor, then flows to a bitterness with citrus zest aspects against a slight pine background. The crisp finish effervesces with a touch of caramel sweetness in the background of a grapefruit zest bitterness. Quite tasty.
