3.65/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

If this is a light beer, it's the best one out there. Surprising it's not more aggressively marketed. It's a mediumly hoppy ale with a twist of lime, and while that may make BAs shudder by bringing back memories of Corona, it seems to work here. The aroma is hoppy and citric, and while the flavor doesn't grab, the finish is admirable. There's some puffy, cratered lace after the pour, and the hops and lime flavors recede after a few sips. But the nose makes the beer. The mouthfeel is a bit watery, doesn't give the tongue much to hang on to, but drinkability is quite high. I'd recommend this beer, and I'd suggest letting it get a fraction warmer than the 45 degrees New Belgium prescribes.

3.6/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle from summer mix 12-pack. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass...

A: light-copper gold; half finger of light beige foam yields a considerable layer of sugary lace.

S: crusty, sweet malt; light citrus; hard candy shell.

T: pretty simple... Very much like the aroma - mostly sweet malt... Bread crust and brown sugar, followed by a light hop bite.

M: exactly what you'd expect from a 4.2% beer. It's OK. Medium body, high carbonation.

O: a nice summer beer!
