3.58/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter. It pours a light gold color with one finger of head that dies off quickly. There is almost no lacing. The smell is light and very grassy. A hint of pale malt in there. It smells like a pils. The taste is malty at first and slightly sweet. The finish is grassy all over. The mouthfeel is light and a touch watery. The drinkability is fair. An average blonde ale. It was good to be drinking an Arkansas beer as my UK Wildcats defeated them. Thanks Kev!

A - poured into a pilsner glass I had.. Color is a very pale straw color with a soapy 1 finger white head that left rather quickly. Left good lacing tho. A lot of carbonation

S - is a grainy malt lemon citrus Smell not a lot

T - just like the smell a malty biscuit lemon taste. Kind of bland but refreshing

M - Light bubbly dry finish

O - it's an alright decent beer that I could see drinking on a hot day but I'm not gonna pick this up regularly.

Enjoy

3.28/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear golden color with a fingers worth of head. Very little lacing.

Smell- Sweet malty aroma with some grain and grass.

Taste- Malt sweetness with a note of grain and just a hint of citrus.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with an average amount of carbonation.

Overall- A decent beer but it's nothing spectacular.

Into a pint glass. Clear straw color with a finger of head.
Smells like dry grain in a metal silo. Yeah, lots of dried grain.
A bit metallic taste with a dry bitterness wrapped around. A little puckering effect.
Fairly crisp texture, light body and moderate carbonation.
Not my favorite.
