look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
The color is pale goldish copper with no discernable head. It looks anemic somehow. No, I don't know what I mean by that.
The smell is hops but a very mild version. Honey in there as well. Not bad but not good, really. The taste is decent but somehow a bit too standard American beer-like. Sort of tastes like a macro that's had a makeover. The mouthfeel is spot-on, though. It has nice body, and a great carbonation balance. The drinkability is mixed. The mouthfeel says "yes" but the macro hop aftertaste says "no". Basically, this beer falls into my "good standby at a place with lousy selection" category. Like Shiner Bock, I'll drink it at a party but probably won't buy it for the house. I much prefer their turbo dog.
Serving type: on-tap
