3.5/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into my HF snifter.

Pour a 1inch head with a decent lacing

light hoppy notes with some grass nothing too remarkable

very light in the mouth feel with some carbonation.

Easy drinking for a hot summer day

Decent offering from Kern I personally would not seek it out again

2.9/5  rDev -21.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Pours an opaque golden hue with a short white head that quickly thins to a ring.

S: Some peach, orange and mango in a faint nose. Also a bit of malt, pine and grapefruit rind.

T: Perhaps past it's prime, taste is on the malty side, if a bit stale. Some orange and grapefruit peel comes through, along with a touch of pine. Not so much hoppy as it is bitter on the finish.

M: Medium bodied, not really smooth.

O: I am surprised, given how good some of their beers are, that this is so mediocre. Would not recommend. I need an IPA.
