3.76/5 rDev +2.5%
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.
A - Clear dark copper with a finger of off white head which disappears quickly.
S - The smell is malt-forward. I get bread and biscuit malts with a hint of caramel, and very slight hop aroma.
T - Sweet malt is the dominant flavor here. Bread, biscuit, and caramel sweetness. This is followed by a slight hop bitterness. Slightly watery tasting.
M - This a watery and thin beer. Luckily there's a decent amount of carbonation.
O - It smells and tastes good, but the mouthfeel is severely lacking. A good session beer, but nothing I'd seek out again.

3.5/5 rDev -4.6%
A - nice clear copper color, thin head that leaves no real lacing. Bottle is cool :))
S - Smells like an AAL. Getting rice, corn, light bread, etc.
T - Also not that good. Same rice, corn, light bread. I can tell this is a beer some would try to (but hate to) play beer pong with. There's just no flavor, but it's not that smooth.
M - Light, slightly bitter, aftertaste almost non-existent.
O - Yea it pretty much sucks. I was expecting something after DDBA. But whatever, they can't all be winners can they?
