3.5/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A firm and frothy half-inch head gives way pretty quickly. The color is pale straw with a huge contingent of bubbles dancing to the surface. The scent is clean and dry. Upon the first taste, a good hop bite spreads through the mouth and leaves just a touch of malt at the end. A crisp and light, very drinkable beer without very much complexity.

Serving type: bottle

3.03/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a minimal head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale orange with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Light bready malts, some vanilla, Ringwood yeast, and grassy hops.

Taste: Same as above with a little bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Light, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation. Nothing exciting.

Overall: Decent summer beer. Very simple. Not too crazy about the Ringwood yeast too.

Serving type: bottle
