3.13/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Poured into a pint glass. Brilliantly clear with a nice 1" head - amber/copper in color. Looks great.

S - Has that typical NB bready / biscuity aroma. I'm getting over a cold so I may not be able to give this 100% justice but there is some caramel sweetness and floral hops in the nose.

T - It tastes like Fat Tire meets a blonde ale. I didn't really pick up the lime leaves at all. It's not a bad beer but it's nothing to write home about either. I give it a 3 - it's not bad, just not great.

M - medium bodied with medium carbonation.

D - I would probably not buy this again but those at the party I went to helped me finish my 6 pack. It was well received by others who mostly drink BMC beers. If you are looking for a good intro into the craft beer world, I guess this would be the ticket.

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

Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head. Aromas of toasted bread. Taste begins with some toasted bread, then some toffee, and finishes with some leafy, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a pretty good, lower alcohol beer. Would be nice after mowing the lawn.
