2.83/5 rDev -17%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
The beer is sort of a golden orange color. An aggressive pour forms a medium sized white head that dies down to a little film. A little spotty lace forms on the glass as the beer is consumed. This beer looks very thin.
The smell has a odd, sort of sweet smell that isn't very appealing.
The odd sweetness is present in the flavor as well. The thin appearance makes sense since the beer tastes a bit watery. Maybe that odd sweetness is what not using enough malt makes a beer taste like.
The mouthfeel is pretty poor. Thin, thin, thin--everything about this beer is thin.
The drinkability of this beer is just okay, sure it goes down easy, but so does water.
