3.45/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A - Pours out with a beautifully clear, copper body. Decent carbonation feeds a ½-finger head, but it lacks any real retention. The glass remains crystal-clear with no lacing to speak of.

S - Name of the game for the scent seems to be balance. Neither the hops nor the malts really take center stage, making for a nice, citrus nose with a good loaf of bread to come along on the journey. Simple, but effective.

T/M - Surprisingly grassy and floral flavors considering the nose. A combination of sharp carbonation and a light body spikes my tongue and makes it hard to pick many other flavors. Lingers after I swallow it, with a bitter aftertaste that isn’t all that great. As it warms, it sweetens a good deal giving it a much more refreshing flavor.

Overall/notes - Well, this won’t go down as one of my favorite beers. I had it a couple of years back and enjoyed it a bit more this go around. Nothing about it really stands out, but it would make for a good, outdoorsy drink.

2.03/5  rDev -46.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Tastes like grass, poured 3 down the sink from my variety pack.

Maybe I got a bad batch, but this beer is awful. A good pale ale is one of my favorite geer genres, and this is a very poor example.

New Belgium disappoints yet again. Dont understand how this brewery has been so successful.
