3.8/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

poured from the 12 oz bottle into my new belgium goblet:

A pours a deep honey color - and a nice 1 finger head that settles to a this foam but no lacing

S bland really - not much to the nose, a bit marco style

T ahh much better on the palate - malty ness takes the front seat by far,

M smooth and silky

D: very drinkable - at 5.0 id say it's a true session beer.

Serving type: bottle

3.46/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: It was poured from a clear 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 5.2%.

Appearance: It has a light amber body with good clarity and a small quick fading white head.

Smell: The aroma is light overall. The hops are up front and offer very light mineral like notes with a slight skunked presence over a very pale thin malt.

Taste / Palate: The flavor has a nice bready maltiness up front along with some mild caramel and toffee sweetness. Hop flavor comes in quickly and adds some dryness and mellow bitterness to the finish.

Serving type: bottle
