3.13/5 rDev -9.5%
Rich copper color with a thick head. I didn’t pick up much on the aroma, light floral hop notes. Taste was not overly hopped and definitely not too sweet but a bit thin, watery. Unfortunately, it just across as mediocre at best. Not a real standout in aroma or taste. Incredible lace that absolutely decorated the glass. Mouthfeel was average, light body. No horrible aftertaste but also nothing that pulls you back for another sip. The low abv and average character make it a sessionable contender but not on a regular basis.

12 oz bottle poured into a glass mug. It formed a creamy, foamy head but the reddish amber color looked really nice. The smell is balanced but mostly malty, oddly nondescript, although you know this isn't Bud Light; there is some substance. The taste is mostly malty with a slight hoppy bite, nicely carbonated, the way I like it. The aftertaste is slightly bitter but nothing overpowering. This would be a pretty good session beer, depending on the price point. I got it one the cheap and am happy I got to try it.
