Bottle purchased and drank at Kelly's Saloon in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a clear orange yellow. No head or lacing.

Smells like nothing, really. I can't pick out much here.

The taste is similarly boring- some bready malt, some grainy sweetness. That's about it. Boooring.

Light bodied, crisp, drinkable.

Pass.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.25

A: Bronze caramel color with substantial carbonation present, pours into a thick head that quickly disappears.

S: Subtle caramel notes, not a strong scent, similar to that of a light lager.

T: Very simple starch taste with metallic dominating on the back-end.

M: Very thin body with high carbonation that pops midway, followed by an antiseptic sensation that lingers for a while.

O: Not enough body, too much carbonation, simple flavor, not impressed.
