3/5 rDev -16.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
A: The beer was a transparent golden-yellow color. There was a medium-thick white head on top.
S: The beer smelled sweet from the malts and piny from the hops; nothing too exciting in this category.
T: The taste was fairly balanced overall between the sweet malt and bitter hops; neither side of the balance was strong though. Also, the hop bitterness did not linger too long, yet I wouldn't exactly describe the beer as crisp.
M: There was plenty of carbonation that made the beer feel thin. The mouthfeel wasn't bad or great to me.
O: Overall, the beer was easy to drink but was boring. It seems this summer ale was designed to be palatable to a wide spectrum of beer drinkers. The beer was balanced well, but there weren't any specific characteristics that made me look forward to drinking the rest of the sixer.
