2.85/5  rDev -22.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Purchased 22oz bomber from Martignetti's

Appearance = Really good looking hazy, light amber. Great 1/2'' head that did not fade at all. Lots of effervescent bubbles rising up. Looks refreshing and crisp.

Smell = Pretty average in the nose. Fresh malt and hops that's not too strong or overwhelming in the least. Malt dominates over the hops which only comes in towards the end.

Taste = Someone told me drinking this beer was like drinking water and I hate to say it but that's fairly accurate. It reminds me of really, really watered down sake, especially towards the end of the taste. Initially, there's some sweetness from the malt but little else. It's not a bad flavor, just nothing really appealing about it. I guess it would go good with some really light food to cleanse the palate. I could see it going well with sushi

Overall = Glad I tried it but I won't be sampling this again. If I wanted something this bland, I'd drink a PBR. .

I poured this beer from a 12oz bottle, it has a light orange color body with a small head. The smell has has a light wheat aroma. The taste has a little spice upfront then the wheat to play on the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is smooth and is a easy drinking beer.
