3.69/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Yay can.... interestingly cracking the top it starting foaming over the top, forcing me to rush the initial pour, and yielding a deep 3 finger foamy bubbly head that forces me to stop pouring into the SA Perfect Pint glass, fades at a med pace with decent foamy lacing, clear honey tan orange color with very little bubbles coming up frmo the etch.

Nose grainy toasty malt little wheat like straw aroma, little wet hay, bready, into fairly creamy malt base, almost yeasty warm fermentation like aroma, a dank wet hay and light grassy slight herbal like hop.

Taste starts crisp, with lots of malt characters, toasty grainy bready malts, light toasted wheat, little wet hay musty flavor, into creamy blond malt characters, bready almost doughy. Then mild grassy slight herbal dank hops, mild bitterness, and a little thin feeling overall. Finish is dry but a little sticky and more dank hay like flavors, hay and straw again lingering, bit more on the grassy herbal hops lingering with a bit more bitterness.

Mouth is lighter bod, very little creamy, little thin feeling too, lighter carb surprisingly.

Overall not bad but not great either, a little thin, malts are nice, hops are so-so, not very creamy, light carbonation somehow, refreshing but just a decent tasting beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

In a pint glass, this beer was a gold color with virtually no head.

One dimensional aroma, just a bit of sweet malt.

There were some hops noted in the taste, but still not much more than sweetness.

Very light, almost like drinking water.

Something to drink when mowing the lawn.

What can I say? I REALLY liked this one. Smells of sweet bready malt & honey. Tastes the same as it smells, no perceivable bitterness (Maybe cause I drink too many IPA's)
Am I the only one who gets a lot of honey notes from this? Was quite enjoyable quaffing this in my recliner after mowing the lawn. Wouldn't turn this down if offered to me again. Hell, I might try to seek out a 6'er or two if my local store can get it. A nice solid offering from Grey Sail, looking forward to checking out more from them!

3.06/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

12 oz can from my third beer-of-the-every-other-month-club. Poured into a large tulip glass.

A -- Pale kind of copper color with decent white head. Good carbonation. Not too hazy or clear. Highlights around the edges.

N -- Metallic. Light malts.

T -- Very subtle. Not a lot going on. Not bad, but not a lot of complexity either. Mostly a light toasted malt flavor.

M -- Light.

O -- Okay, for what it is. Would not seek out again.

Cheers.
