3.25/5  rDev +2.5%

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.

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.

3.18/5  rDev +0.3%
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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

Appearance is fizzy yellow with an average head and plenty of spritz in the mouth. Light body. A hint of hoppy fragrance along with cereal cooking. Some light flavors of malt and a modest hoppy edge. A little bit of resiny flavor. English muffin breadiness. Bitter metallic twang.

Bitterish bathwater taste at the finish. This seems to be a step up from the industrial lagers, but it's a small step. Still, however uninspired it's an almost drinkable light lager. Unpleasant bitter note makes me want to quit drinking it, though. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Von's supermarket in San Clemente.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A- Marigold color with a very white head. This beer actually has some of the best lacing I have seen in a while. Champagne style bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

S- Copper aromas with the faint sweet hop smell we all look for in a pale ale. Not as big a nose as you would expect. It's rather bland.

T- It's a pale pale ale. Not bursting with flavor like a traditional PA, but it does have a very drinkable flavor to it. Not quite up to Pale Ale status, this is more like a lager with more flavor than any other lager on earth. It could benefit from just a few more hops.

M- Thin and a bit watery. Doesn't have the body of a pale ale either.

O- I can't say that I would blind taste this and think pale ale. However at the same time if you put it up against other lighter varieties of beers (pilsners, lagers) I would say this one would come out near the top. It has a basic general drink-ability to it that makes it a good choice for an everyday thirst quencher.
