Poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear golden yellow with lots of bubbles and one-finger, white, fizzy head that lasted a couple minutes and left a nice film. Okay lacing.

S: Hops, malt. Light fruit banana, apple. Mild overall.

T: Light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Toasted malt. Not much hop flavor. Crisp and clean. Subtle apple.

M: Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Nice feel.

O: Above average, but nothing special. Refreshing and drinkable.

Bottle (2012)

Clear golden with a small off-white head that leaves the glass clean on the way down.

The aroma is of simple grain and some dishrag, unfortunately. Simple, yet not particularly pleasant.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with simple grain, low bitterness, and a bit of earthy yeast character.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Not that good, but completely expected for the given style.

Picked up a 6 pack while in Paso Robles for the FW invitational. Pours a yellow beer, white head, nothing exceptional going on. Aroma was cereal grain and not much else, barely present hop aroma going on.

Clean taste, mild mouthfeel, grain presence. Easy to drink, slightly bitter aftertaste, but nothing that should scare any seasoned beeradvocate. A decent beer, worth having around for other's to drink. You've had lots of iterations of this beer, this is the local brewery easy go to drink for the non beer drinker. It is what it is. You know what kind of beer I'm describing. Its an all barley version of BMC basically. Slightly better, a little more ooomph, but nothing special.
