look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Very light hops, citrus, almost no after taste. Put this one in the freezing for 20 minutes, just started to ice up, took it out, poured and drank. Excellent super cold, very easy drinking. I would compare it to an ale version of a flavorful cold lager.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy light golden color. Smell consists of bread, mild hop, and a touch of citrus. Taste is more of the same, with the bread flavor quite pronounced and the hops adding a bit of citrus flavor, namely lemon. Mouthfeel is fairly thin but this is to be expected for the style, while the carbonation is on the lower end of the spectrum. The beer finishes dry and somewhat sticky. Overall, this is pretty standard. While the low ABV and simple flavors, it could make for a good session beer for someone looking for a dry and bready light brew.

Appearance: Cloudy; golden; medium frothy head; very long lasting with good lacing

3.63/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Slightly hazy golden color with a finger and a half worth of head. Light amounts of lacing.

Smell- Pale malt aroma with some floral hops.

Taste- Sweet biscuity malt at the start that turns into a herbal hop bitterness at the finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and creamy. An average amount of carbonation with a slightly dry finish.

Overall- A good, easy drinking beer. However, there is nothing that makes it stand out either.

Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and slight citrus aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and citrus flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a subdued but fairly tasty citrus hop presence.

3.8/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

500ml bottle poured into pint glass 1/4/13

A slightly hazy darker shade of yellow with plenty of tiny bubbles throughout that feed a tight thick film not quite a pinky deep, retains well and leaves a couple partial rings

S lots of soft caramels, herbal and slightly floral hops, some cereal and cream corn perhaps

T hops have a little spice to them and some fruity notes with some sweet malt, mimics the nose fairly well other then that

M a little slick after the fact with more body then one would expect from a small beer, good carbonation with the pin-prick bubbles creaming it up nicely, spicy finish lingers

O I didn't mind this one and its making me think of Spring, not a bad version of the style

I'm trying to rate to style and if I was leaning more towards personal preference today it would score lower because I'd get board. That being said they made what they were attempting to make fairly well.
