3.48/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: This beer pours a dark amber with lots of highlights. The Slightly off white head didnt rise up much but maintained a thin layer on top. Plenty of beading inside and the lacing is very little.
Smell: The aroma is sweet caramel malts, light hop character and i'm even detecting a little fruitiness, almost orange. Simple in the nose , but very pleasing.
Taste: The flavors consist of more hops than I had imagined but nothing over the top. The malt seems to still have that caramel bite to it. Good overall, taste.
Mouthfeel: Light/medium bodied with good amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel was alot thinner than I expected almost watery.
Drinkability: The drinkability for me was very good. I would like to try this on a later date for sure. Other than the thin mouthfeel I would say this was a good go to beer.
Serving type: bottle

Drank on-tap at the local Flying Saucer. Appearance is a hazy, nondescript copper, with a white head that creates no lacework and has little retention. Nose is watery, with notes of corn. Tastes like it couldn't decide what it wanted to be when it grew up: an English ale? A pint of Yeungling? As other reviewers have noted, hop and malt characteristics are poorly matched, as if someone had blended a so-so lager with an ale. Although some of the characteristics might have been likeable in a more balanced beer, it's less than the sum of its parts. I did not enjoy it at all and would certainly not try it again.
