3.2/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Very dark golden & orangey & a touch tawny – not quite amber. Good-size slightly off-white cap of foam. Clear with lots of streams of small bubbles rising to the top. Head retains alright & leaves some good lace.

S: Hops are grassy, minty, and a bit spicy & herbal. But not all that strong or forward. Vague background grainy pils.

T: More firmly hoppy than the nose, but all on the bittering – character is actually less. Grainy, sort-of-pils base with some husk & a minimal light floral & honey-like sweetness. Not bad, but it's all base – grainy & husky malts with herbal hop bitterness.

M: Medium body with just the barest bit over-matched carbonation. Initially expansive & cushiony from CO2. Then the hop tannins texture blends into a drying finish.

D: It has flavor, but it falls into the adequate category. All low end, background, and base. It needs some higher and accent notes to liven it up. And have the middle rounded out more.

2.16/5  rDev -34.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A: The beer poured a nice medium amber, clear with no sediment.

S: This beer has a very pleasant smell, lightness and earthy

T: completely jacked up with hops, distastefully so. I couldn't taste any notes over the insane amount of hops.

O: I did not enjoy this beer, Way too much hops that takes over any flavour profile that may be present, distracting. Will not be purchasing again.

Serving type: bottle

3.74/5  rDev +13%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Tan, with molasses hints. Clear.

Smell: Sweet malty notes, but not overpowering.

Taste: This is a hoppy lager, but if I hadn't known that I would have sworn that it was a brown ale with a bit of zest.

Mouthfeel: A bit thin, but the end rounds out nicely.

Overall: Enjoyable and very drinkable.
