2.75/5 rDev -15.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear reddish orange color with a 1/4" head of mixed size bubbles that only retained for a few seconds. There are a few bubbles rising, but they don't really maintain the head.
Aroma: Quite a bit of fruitiness is noticeable at first along with some bready yeast and a tad of toasty malts. There is a slight metallic aroma along with a faint sour twang somewhere in the depths.
Taste: The taste is a bit one sided and hollow. There is some malt that you get in the beginning along with the metallic edge and plethora of fruitiness. The middle of the profile is so balanced that it is practically nonexistant. The finish is rather wet and uneventful. There is very little bitterness to back up the malt in the finish. It is light to slightly heavier bodied, but the carbonation is light, so it rolls across your palate a bit watery.
Opinion: This is my first beer of the evening, so I figured that this one would go over better than this. I am pretty disappointed, obviously. This beer is just too light, and the only flavors that I get with any significance are bordering on flaws. I have their pale ale in the fridge also, so I hope it makes a better showing than this one.
