look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: A a pale golden beer with a creamy, off white head that leaves some lacing on the glass.

S: A little bit of an earthy hops aroma with a slight citrusy ester that seems to come from the yeast. There is a moderate malt sweetness

T: A malty softness and a light a earthy hops flavor and medium-light hops bitterness. There is a light bit if ale yeast character but not much. The balance is even and the finish is polity abrupt.

M: A Creamy, medium-lighted beer with a medium level of carbonation.

O: An easy to drink blonde style that is moderately malty beer with a good creaminess. If you buddy only drinks lawn more lagers and needs a gateway ale this isn't a bad choice as it's sort of a lightly flavored ale.

A - Poured a pale yellow with a one inch white head. The head was quite fleeting and quickly dispersed into a thin line on the glass. Very good carbonation level. I did notice some faint lacing.

S - Very "light" aroma for an ale with some hop note as well as some grain. Overall a very neutral smell.

T - Primarily taste is grain with a hint of hop bitterness. No sensation of alcohol. Flavor actually improved as beer warmed.

M - A rather "thin" mouth feel. A bit on the watery side.

O - Considering the price paid, this represents a fairly decent value.

Purchased from Wegmans on Taft Road in Liverpool NY. Honestly not a bad beer for the price. I notice that it is very carbonated which is not a bad thing for the beer. Has mostly a sweet bready taste. It is not to heavy so you can drink a few without getting overwhelmed. I will purchase this in the future it is very cheap an brewed in my home state.
