3.25/5 rDev -11%
ok, decent beer. It is light. Head and lacing ok. Color is nice. Flavor has a touch of citrus and malt. Kinda has a very light of hint of maybe a lemon muffin. Hope I am not stretching too far with that description. The finish has good carbonation and is clean and crisp. By no means am I comparing to a Michelob ultra, but this beer had somewhat of a similar clean, dry finish. I liked it !!

A: pours a cloudy yellow with a bunch of head and lacing. Although there might have been tap issues, the head sustained and was constantly rewind he'd by visible carbonation.
S: not much here, light lemon notes, maybe a little wheat??
T: nothing outrageous, just (to me) a solid straightforward beer. I do get those light lemon notes, but it's a more bready overall taste. I also get a little pineapple near the end, unfortunately countered by a little copper taste in some swigs (that I think I get with this style).
M: very smooth despite the carbonation, which also comes to play later in the taste.
Has a light dryness in the end, maybe from the carbonation, but there is also a longer term oily pine bitterness. Perhaps this plus the lemon notes give me that "copper" taste.
O: I think this could be in the running for my BMC replacement at a BBQ. Light enough, great feel. Just wonder if the dryness might build.

A: Pilsner like yellow. Long-lasting fine white head and good lacing. Not as dark as the typical steam beer.
S: Well-balanced between malt, yeast, and hop aromas. Nothing garish about any of those aspects. Faint fruits, tart apple. Not too many sweet elements.
M: Nice high carbonation counteracts a somewhat chewy mid-body.
T: Coarse grains, bread, toffee. Light floral hops, clean lemon pith bitterness dominates the finish.

No head--only rim bubbles. There are few spots of lace. The liquid is light gold and clear.
I like the smell. It has a nice blend of the malt and hop with no negative nor strong aromas to detract.
This leans heavily to the hop. Strong bitter (pine-like) bite. Surprising, given the balance of the nose. relatively easy to drink. Low to moderate body but highly carbonated. This resembles a bitter American pale ale.

A- a paler gold with significant visible carbonation. A nice one finger head, creamy white and lasts for a while
S- mild hops and bread.
T- interesting. A nice balance between the citrus hops and the bready malt. Some sips are malty and some are hoppy. It's definitely different.
M-Lighter, with minimal carbonation
O- Like the taste, interesting and different.

The beer is a clear light orange. The head is white and fizzy but lasts quite a while afterwards with bits of lacing.
The beer has a slightly sweet and malty smell. The hops come off as citrusy and like an orange.
The beer is extremely bitter and hoppy for a common steamer. the hops are citrusy with hints of lemon. The sweet malt gets lost in the hops but is still there as an undertaste.
Heavily carbonated and medium bodied. Leaves me feeling refreshed.
A pretty hoppy common and would do well in the summer for a refreshing drink.
