Appearance - 4/5
A deep orange color, moderately clear, but I can see many particles floating around in the beer. Their is a small amount of head retention. The carbonation bubbles float up at an average speed. Overall, a decent look.

Smell - 3/5
Standard beer smell, with more breadiness to the smell than usual

Taste - 3.6/5
An orangey-citrusy beer taste, with some breadiness and alcohol taste. Perhaps some floral hops taste, not very bitter.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
Creamy rather than crisp. The carbonation is very light. Seems heavier in body than most beers.

Overall - 3/5
The beer was not bad, but not great either.

Weighting: Appearance 15%, Smell 15%, Taste 35%, Mouthfeel 15%, Overall 20%

This one pours a very clear bright golden color and has a barely off-white head that is thick, long lived and settles very slowly. The lacing is adequate and thin and also settles down the glass as well.

The nose is tinged with peppery/pine hops that hint at a spicy note with some sweet malt, biscuits, grass and lemon.

The taste is a moderate bittering on top of sweet malt with some black pepper and earthy notes. Not very complex or interesting

The moutfeel is a little on the watery side.

Overall a drinkable but not particularly interesting or compelling beer. Think of a slight more bitter and interesting version of a Heineken crossed with Little Kings.

3.07/5  rDev -3.2%

A: 3.5 - Pale gold beer, clear, with a large airy head that fades fairly quickly, leaving little lacing.
S: 3.5 - Faint floral hops.
T: 2.75 - Sweet, grainy malt, with very little bitterness. Tastes like a generic macro:
M: 3.25
O: 2.75 - Fortunately, got as part as a pick-your-6, so I don't have any more to drink. Very poor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: pours golden color with a slight orange hue, one finger head that quickly dissipated leaving a thin broken layer that lasted throughout, medium carbonation, moderate lacing.

SMELL: sweet caramel, bread, subtle and understated.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, sweet caramel malt, bread and a mild hop profile with a very slight metallic aftertaste. This is a very mild hop version of the pale ale style.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation, creamy.

OVERALL: this beer is unremarkable, I will not seek it out again, hop profile is too mild for my liking and had a slightly unappealing metallic taste.
