look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a pale yellow with around two fingers of frothy white head; even though I took longer than usual to make it to the bottom of this glass, much of it stuck around for the long all, with a fair amount of lacing.
S: Not a big fan of the smell; it's weak but its most prominent quality seems to be that of skunk. An indistinguishable sweet malt and lager yeast come out as the beer warms, salvaging things a bit.
T: Large improvement over smell; things start out with a sweet cereal flavor; lots of bready malts here. Light grassy, peppery, slightly floral hop bite provides a mild bitterness to balance things out. Incredibly flavorful in contrast to its light color and mouthfeel; I was not expecting such an assertive sweetness.
M: Thin body with lively, prickly carbonation. Crisp, dry finish.
D: As I neared the end of my glass, this beer's sweetness did begin to weigh on me a bit, so I don't think I would be able to fully enjoy two in a row. Definitely worth a try though, and I'm sure I'll be returning to this in the summer months.

The Original is great....it poured a clear golden color with thin white head that is leaving some lace. The scent carries biscuit and grass like tones. The taste is well balanced....its starts with nice bready push then finishes slightly bitter coming off the pallet very clean!!! The mouthfeel is light to medium in body with great carbonation. Overall this is an excellent beer great for sessioning as it is very easy drinking...I would have this again....and again....and again.
