3.78/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
A - poured a brilliant clear golden color with orange to amber highlights. Light 1/3 finger head didn't last long, no lacing whatsoever.
S - aroma is a soapy corny malt sweetness with slight alcohol.
T - taste is a surprisingly more complex for what I was expecting, at least more than what I got from the nose. Very light and crisp much like a generic AAL, but with a almost British character reminiscent of something from Samuel smith but much fresher, a very biscuity, nutty, caramel malt character with buttery diacetyl overtones. Low to no hop flavor but a balanced bitter finish that ends dry and refreshing.
M - light, light carbonation, dry finish.
O - this was enjoyable, reminded me of yuengling but with a very British flavor. Has a very bright, crisp, and refreshing flavor profile. Great refreshing beer, simple and straightforward but still very interesting.
