2.38/5 rDev -38.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
A: Great looking beer! Pours a nice deep hazy copper with some sentiment present, and a nice frothy off white head. Significant lacing on the glass. Looks like a nice strong iced tea with a fluffy head.
S: Smell is light overall. A little bit of malt and a fair bit of sweetness - almost sugary. I get a smell like a weak, sweetened iced tea.
T: much stronger than the smell, with more hop presence than expected from the nose. Starts out mild and a bit malt-esque, then the hops hit, which linger a bit throughout the sip and into the finish. I get that sweetened tea in the finish as well - it reminds me a bit of sweet tea flavored vodka, but with a hop bite instead of an alcohol bite.
M: Thin given the deep color, overall I'd say on the heavy side of thin, if that makes sense.
O: Dissappointing, overall. I wanted to like this, given the look and low ABV, but it just doesn't deliver. Has that strange bitter hop/sweet taste I just can't get into. Not a drain pour, but I won't be buying or drinking this again soon. More interesting then a macro light lager, but at 3x the price and the same ABV, I'll take a Bud Light.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle
A - pours a nice dark golden brown with a finger and a half of tan head that fades to a dense lacing
S - Citrusy floral hops with a hint of malty sweetness, very well rounded.
T - A good balance of malt and hops with a bitter hop aftertaste that lingers well.
M - surprisingly watery, not quite what I was expecting given everything else this beer had to offer...
O - A very very solid drinking beer, great balance, and a very good balanced hoppy amber, unfortunately the mouthfeel left a bit to be desired and the taste was missing just a hint of something.
