3.79/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: Very cool label in the traditional TD fashion with a K-9 inspired theme. Gives a short description of the beer, as well as web info, ABV info, and a small bit of brewery info.

Appearance: Poured from a 12oz bottle into a 13oz tulip glass. This poured out a slightly hazy golden honey color with a 1½ finger white foam head of an airy light density. Head retention was OK sticking around for 1min 37sec before fading to a nice foam coating and ring. Lacing is good.

Smell/Aroma: Smell is heavy on raspberry with a slight corn malt scent.

Flavor/Taste: Taste is very raspberry dominated on the front end before the same corn malt that hits the nose come through in the flavor as well. Not much else going on.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the heavier side of light bodied with a crisp and smooth feel. The perfect amount of carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall/Comments: This was a very good offering. While not complex at all, it claims to be a raspberry ale and that is exactly what it is. Easy drinking, flavorful, and refreshing. Perfect for a hot summer day. Classified as a Fruit Beer at 3.9% ABV. Consumed 2-14-13.

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

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of raspberry syrup are present in the nose. It kind of reminds me of Greman raspberry candies I used to have as a child.
T: The taste has flavors of grainy malt, wheat, and raspberries. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This isn't a bad fruit beer as it has a decent amount of raspberry aromas and flavors and doesn't seem sweet or artificial.
