3.88/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured into standard pub glass, 50F.

cloudy yellow, straw color with 1 inch head that is gone in a hurry. Suspended particles throughout. Moderate carbonation.

This stuff is pretty good. Crisp and refreshing, like a summer brew should be. Semi sweet, fruity aftertaste that does not linger long. I also taste the faintest of orange flavor.

the lightness and crispness makes this beer perfect for those summertime activities where you want something refreshing that will not slow you down by being too heavy.

Drinkability is good, too. I can see enjoying several of these as I work the grill on a warm night in July.

I think this would be a beer that I would give to someone who has never had a craft beer before. It's leagues better than a BMC product, but because of its lightness it won't send em running back to mama.

Bottle poured into Sam Adams glass

White foam cap settles into a solid white foam layer with good lacings. Hazy golden yellow.

Aroma of straw, grass, lemon.

Malt , Yeast, then lemon on the front of the tongue. Crisp aftertaste.

Smooth, gentle carbonation. Light to light medium mouthfeel.

Nice, summer time brew

3.8/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy, golden color with one finger of head that fades to a ring.

Aroma: Sweet malt, a little yeast funk, Lemon

Taste: Sweet malt, a little cardboard, then lots of carbonation leading to a pleasantly mild citrus rind bitterness and some spice notes, nothing distinct that I could pick out. Finish is lingering.

The Rest: Medium bodied, all-day drinkability and a pleasing flavor profile, this is one of my favorite summer beers.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A- cloudy off yellow colored body, small fingernail head that reduces to a thin discontinuous layer

N - something about this that turns me away.. I can pick up citrus but there's something else on the forefront that I can't quite put my finger on

M - light and noticeable carbonation feel

T - eh.. Same as the nose. I can pick up citrus flavor which is great but there's something that turns me off

O - this bottle was 2 months old but that's not bad.. I don't know but I wasn't a fan of this. I wouldn't cringe if offered one but I would ask what else was is available..
