On tap at the Flying Saucer in Addison. It is a distinctly gold (not yellow) color, with a thin head that dissippated quickly. The smell is caramel and floral hops (redundantly repeating myself). The taste is surprisingly malty with a crisp, sharp aftertaste that has a note of citrus. The mouthfeel is silky and a touch creamy. Definitely not the macro brew it looks like to start. The drinkability is excellent. It is very refreshing and the silkiness balances the crisp finish nicely. This one has "session beer" written all over it.
Serving type: on-tap

3.48/5 rDev +1.5%

Appearance- Looks like an adjunct lager. Super carbonated, golden, and slight head produced.
Smell- Not much here besides some grainy notes and slight citrus.
Taste- Grainy malts hit the tongue at first with lots of carbonation. Following that some citrus and bread malt lingers on the tongue.
Feel- Very carbonated. Clean and crisp, almost lager like.
Overall- This essentially seems like a tastier adjunct beer option, and it serves its purpose well. I would definitely get this as a substitute for bmc when out drinking. However, day to day this isn't worth putting in the rotation, especially with better beers within the style available.
Serving type: bottle
