2.5/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

12oz twist-off cobalt blue bottle, no freshness date. Labeling looks sort of cheap looking or at least the design is not so appealing to me.

LOOK: Crystal clear pale yellow, head crackles a bit but does stay.

SMELL: White flour, cooked cereal, carbonic, muted

TASTE: Crisp, warming alcohol, plain porridge, faint hop bitterness, light maltiness, slightly cloying

It's basically a light malt liquor. Lacking any real malt flavor and the cloying character it less resembles a beer and more of a very watered down cheap whiskey. There are clearly better light beers out there if you are into that. Now we all just have to wait for the half dozen fruit varieties that will follow it is does well.

Serving type: bottle
