3.45/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - A clear, golden straw color. It looks just like a Pilsner, not seeing the Ale side of it. A bit of head retention and slight lace on the glass.

S - Grain and slight citrus aroma. Not a very strong aroma.

T - Slightly bitter. I was expecting a little more sweetness. The grain malts dominate. Little hop flavor.

M - Highly carbonated.

D - It seems low ABV, and it is a fairly smooth beer. A decent 6 pack for a day on the lake, but nothing here is all that special.

3.38/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, corn-yellow coloring with a ton of slow carbonation in the body, and a fluffy, dense, small bubbled, white head. Aromas of citrus sweet, bubblegum, toasted grains, subtle herbal notes, and some nutmeg and clove spice. Flavors are sweet and herbal forward, with a subtle cracker and bread backbone, and lemongrass, clove, and all-spice highlights, with subtle tart citrus characteristics. The herbal tones overpower a bit, and there is subtle hops bitterness that enhances that imbalance. Light, effervesced body, that moves close to astringent as the beer leaves your palate. The aftertaste is lemon-citrus and heavy spice, still. Dry, again almost astringent, finish.

3.73/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a glass.

A-cloudy gold color, well carbonated with a 1 inch white head forming, looks good.

S- creamy peach/orange aroma. Hints of what seems to be pineapple? Probably not but thats the best description I can think of for it

T-broad citrus flavors present, not much in the aftertaste, kind of a dry finish

M-medium bodied, very smooth

O-Everything was there for me but the taste didn't seem to correlate with the other features. I like it.
