This beer sits a lightly hazy straw-gold color in my glass, it is topped by a thin, wispy pale head. The aroma is quite faint, but definitely beery; it is lightly herbal, and has a bit of thin malt to it (hops are most dominant in this ephemeral aroma). The taste has notes of sweet grain up front with a light herbal / spicy hop note in the middle through to the finish, which has a light bitterness to it. Overall this is thin, though slightly beery, and is spot on to style with a bit of fruitiness, but it is certainly not something that I will try again.

Light gold color. Small white head. Aroma is grainy, grassy and sweet. Milder taste, light bodied, some malts with a slight hoppyness. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. A light and refreshing beer, nice for a 90+ degree day, but kind of uninspired.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Yellow/goldish with a fragile white head that appears to have more density due to high carbonation.

Aroma: light salty hops and yeast with pale malt playing a very minor role.

Taste: Not very creamy, not enough protein to give any structure to its simplicity. In the general realm of a cream ale but missing the point. If they did a real protein rest and put it on nitro this could be much better.

Overall: Very simple and light, not actually refreshing though, pretty generic, could be a cream ale, could be a blonde ale, could almost anything light and uninteresting.
