3.95/5 rDev +10%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: This beer pours a bright yellow with just a hint of orange. Small fizzy heady fades fast.
Smell: Toasty caramel malt aroma and hints of citrus hops. Very clean nose.
Taste: I am new to this style but I really it enjoy the brilliant simplicity here. Malt & hops - beer. Simple straightforward; quaffable. There is a hint of toastedness to the sweet (almost fruity) malts. There is a hint of citrus to the solid (almost spicy) hops. This is a beer made for drinking.
Mouthfeel: It has a nice light body, smooth, and very refreshing.
Drinkability: Sensational. This is a perfect choice for a Summer Ale.
Hope this is helpful.

3.13/5 rDev -12.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
This one pours a pure and filtered gold with a thin short lived white head that has no lacing of note.
The nose is is sweet with peppery spicy, some citrus and moderate hops. There are mild notes of floral and fruit as well
The flavor is dry malt with some biter-sweet hops that has a sweet finish. a light refreshing beer that is good but not great and has an acceptable bitter finish.
The mouthfeel is a bit watery but acceptable.
Overall a drinkable beer but nothing special.
