A below average blonde ale. Has elements of pilsner and flavors of what I typically associate with an alt bier. The net result does not come together as cleanly as it could. For me this is a pass.

As hardly drinkable as possible, if they made this at 1% abv it would be something. 16 IBU is a good indicator of any flavour. Middling mouthfeel, light coloured body, a wisp of a head. Neutral aroma. Light honey and malt, a faint drop of hop. More hops would make a difference.

Saw this beer at the grocery store so I thought I would give it a shot.

A-Poured a decent head with a nice golden color. It also had a good amout of tiny bubbles risng to the top of the glass the whole time i was drinking it.

S- When I smelled this, the first thing that came to mind was nuts. It had a slight nutty smell with a hint of hops.

T- Again the first thing that came to mind was something nutty. It finished with a qucick burst of light hops.

Overall, this beer was just ok. It's something else to drink with some friends other than bud. I don't think I would buy it again.

Not too bad for the first attempt. Support your Local! This lighter ale is drinkable but a bit cider-y. I will continue to support this local tidewater brewery and I'm looking forward to more offerings from O'Connor.

Appearance: Clear golden; bubbly; lightly foamy

Smell: A bit cidery; some malt

Taste: Light and a little cidery; it may need to condition a bit longer. Good potential

Mouthfeel: Light; CO2 noticable

Drinkability: Drinkable en masse or with a meal

Poured a light gold body with two finger head that died quick with a little lace retention. The smell is airy, not a complement, with some decent bitter citric hops and some grainy malts. Beer is light bodied, not watery but very light, smooth, easy to drink, balanced but very simplistic as I get a smattering of hops and some minor sweetness.
