3.55/5 rDev +21.6%
a head more sizzler than golden corral, white foam standing at about 1 finger but dropping, straw and clear colored, although the head has dissipated greatly lacing is still pretty good (most likely due to the plenty o' bubbles gurgling up from the bottom in a tempest), not bad looking
slight biscuit, slight hop, this is mild as the style does suggest
just sharp enough carbonation, definite malt flavor with just hints of hops on the edges, the malt actually sticks around to chat for some time, a really nice and mild ride, there is nothing off kilter here, it is exactly as advertised, it is quite refreshing and drinkable
the style is what the style is, this has more character than your big box lagers (the you know whos) and is a nice drinkable ale. Is it a world beater ? no, of course not but it does what it sets out to do, a good brew for those who can't grab an english export to experience the genesis of the style.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, grains, a bit bready. Taste is light and mild, some breadyness and malts, not a very strong flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

2.25/5 rDev -22.9%
a - pale yellow body, fizzy head subsides quickly to a thin surface layer.
s - Zesty lemon and citrus up front, vaguely spicy, buried beneath is a mild bready body. A familiar smell much like that of an infected homebrew.
t/m - fruity up front, thin body overcarbed. spicy finish.
o - honestly this tastes exactly like beers I've screwed up and infected. I want to like this local brewery but after reading other reviews and trying this first hand I think they have a few things to work out before I buy another from them.

3.15/5 rDev +7.9%
A- Pale straw color with a 1cm head that disappears instantly. Clarity is on the hazy side and little to no lacing present.
S- Light malt, grass, fruit (apple, pear, grape), and some faint diacetyl. Very little hop aroma, but that is to be expected of the style.
T- Malt dominated with some fruit and a herbal tea-like hop flavor.
M- Light to medium feel with low levels of carbonation.
O- A decent Pale Mild. Nothing outstanding, but then again there's nothing horribly wrong with it either. Bottom-line: Unless you're a diehard fan of the style or someone who has to try every beer in existence, you can getaway with skipping this one. Cheers.
