3.24/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Poured into a chilled English pint glass.
Appearance 3.5: Poured out a lovely coppery gold. Lots of CO2 bubbles all over the place, but strangely, a smallish head: under 1/4".
Smell 3.25: Very subdued bouquet. I get hints of caramel barley and a slight nose of a dry hopped low alpha hop, but that is about it.
Taste 3.25: Front is slightly sweet, with a small hint of barley. Middle is semi-dry; a hint of barley malt makes the taste more full at this level than the others. There is also a very faint alkaline taste of hops here. Finish is also dry, with more of the barley there barley and brief taste of hops. Aftertaste is short with a brief hint of cereal grains.
Mouthfeel 3.0: Watery in the mouth, with very little to make it distinctive.
Overall 3.25: A beer that is just a little better than OK. Not to say that this beer is horrible by any means, it is just an OK beer. Unremarkable, somewhat dry, I am certain it would be great with food. I would be willing to try this beer on tap somewhere, but would not buy another six-pack. Again, it's not a bad beer, it's just not that good and I can certainly find something better for the price.
