look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A-Pours a slightly murky, dull amber color. Very mild head. Slight lacing too.

S-Nose is incredibly soft. A hint of dull herbal hops. The malt is more talkative. Grainy and bready. Neither side of the aroma spectrum is very enticing but still, there is nothing wrong or offensive.

T-Its malt-forward without being very malty. Almost watery. Sweet, multi-grain bread and some light caramel. Quiet floral hops.

M-It drinks quite easily. Light in body with tickling carbonation. Lingering sweetness.

O/D-Very bland. Nothing off-putting. I guess it could work if you want something really light that you will never, ever remember.

3.29/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance:
Pours a clear, copper color body with a thin, white head. Minimal lacing. Crazy carbonation.

Aroma:
Damp grains and light honey notes. Light sweetness. Rather blah.

Taste:
Lightly toasted malts. Grainy. Fresh biscuits. Earthy hop presence towards the end but is inoffensive.

Mouthfeel:
Smooth and light. Semi-sweet finish. Crisp.

Overall:
Nothing special here. It's easy to drink and inoffensive. I wouldn't run out trying to find this one, but on a hot summer day, this could be a fine grilling companion.
