3.13/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a crystal clear golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall white head that quickly reduces to a thin patch covering most of the surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: The aroma is mostly grainy malts with some lighter hints of bready malts.

T: Slightly sweet but not as sweet as you usually find in this style. Overall the flavors are pretty mellow with some graininess, some bready malts, and a little bit of yeast spiciness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: Overall this is a very easy to drink beer that one could definitely consume many of during a single session. Seems like it would be best in hot weather, at the beach, with spicy food, or all of the above.

2.95/5  rDev -1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Stubby 11.2 ounce bottle.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow with a 1" thick white head which lingers and leaves semi-rings of lace.

N: Corny, grainy, malty and yeasty. Not too exciting.

T: A bit estery with very faint banana notes, yeasty and mildly sweetish malts.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Semi-dry with a crisp and clean finish.

O: Easy to drink and it was refreshing on a warm afternoon.
