look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A- Clear golden color with 1 finger of white head with decent lacing left on my glass.
S- Mild hops with a decent malt scent that overpowers the hop scent, really light but wasn't expecting much.
T- Light almost a lighter light IPA, starts with a mild malt flavor and finishes with a mild hop bitterness. Very watered down and missing a mid pallete.
M- Light body with good amounts of carbonation which make this a very nice, light refreshing beer.
D- Easy to drink this beer, just finished the can after throwing the baseball around and it was refreshing as well, I just like my beers to have a little more body, but not bad. This beer slightly reminds me of The Bruery's Humulus XPA for some reason, I don't know just light beers.

A - Copper orange, clear, with a large white head that bubbled off quickly and reduces to a thin film, with mild lacing.
S - Surprisingly strong hop note, mostly of pine. Malt is also present, a quality of bread.
T - This is a subtle brew, but offers both cracker flavors and bread in the malts and an element of grass from the hop. There is a hint of citrus and pine, but it buried deep in the mix. Most important is the bitter shift at mid-point, where we get a more standard bitter.
M - For as bitter as this is, the brisk carbonation and light body and ABV keep things bright and easy. A true session beer.
O - Where I've found most bitters lack something at their core, this bitter is robust and fully realized, ultimately quite satisfying. This is not my favorite style, but this represents an exciting entry that I'd actually reach for when looking for a brew by the lake where I need to keep my edge.
