3/5 rDev -19.1%
Poured into a pint glass on 12/24/09
Slightly hazy & pale shade of medium-light amber. Nearly two finger head seems to hold up well. Pretty good retention & lacing throughout.
Earthy hop aroma with a touch of spiciness. Hints of grain & wheat. Some of the pale malts poke through, though the nose seems muted on the whole. Grassy undertones.
Tastes as the nose would suggest, but stepped up a notch. A decent amount of hoppy bitterness hits upfront; though it tames quickly, spiciness lingers. Moderate malt backdrop via toasted bread. Overall, well balanced & a bit underwhelming.
Lighter side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation; more creamy than prickly. Resin & grainy grit in there. Earthy finish.
Nothing stands out as particularly good or memorable. It's just ok. After this 6 pack, I'm done with this one.

3/5 rDev -19.1%
Received as an extra in a recent trade.
Pours a deep, opaque golden yellow color with yellow highlights. Has a very thick white head that thins out pretty quick, leaving a solid ring that holds for the duration. Decent amount of lacing for a beer of this style.
Light aroma. Strong notes of sweet malts and bread, with a hint of honey and a slight touch of hops.
Taste is rather bland. Initial flavor of sweet malts, balanced out with a slight hoppy bitterness. There is a solid note of citrus throughout, and just a little bit of spice. Taste leaves the pallet almost immediately.
Lighter body. Great carbonation level. Crisp, smooth, and quite refreshing.
This is not a bad tasting beer by any means, it's just on the unimpressive side. Even still, it's light, smooth, and refreshing, and for someone looking for a beer they can suck down a few of on a lazy afternoon, this is honestly a solid choice.
