2.45/5 rDev -7.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2
11.2oz bottle poured into a Shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Clear straw yellow color with plenty of carbonation coming up through the beer. White 1/4" foam upon pouring died down to a thin ring at the edge and nothing across the top. Very mild amounts of lacing noted.
Smell: When first poured, maybe the barest hint of apples and some crisp malt, but after awhile, not even that.
Taste: Mild in taste, crisp, grain is notable, very mild bitter finish with more of a clean mild malt aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Fizzy and very prickly on the tongue, but once that clears, watery. Sadly not good.
Overall / drinkability: Meh is about the best I can say. When its very cold there is still something there, but as it warms up, it's all gone, and at that point you really have to chug the stuff fast to get much of anything out of it. Taste and appearance average for this style of beer and nothing special but not bad. Might be good during a hot day, but otherwise I'm not impressed. Oh well, not everything can be good.
Serving type: bottle

I drank this straight from the bottle just to enjoy and relax after work today.
It was a clear golden color- what you'd expect from your typical macrobrewery.
A very light smell, hard to detect, but some wheaty notes of malt are what caught most of my attention.
The taste was pretty average. Wheat, grass, malt. It tasted a lot more refreshing and clear than a lot of similar brews.
Pretty decent mouthfeel. Not as smooth as I'd like, and a little too much carbonation.
This was a decent beer. Nothing special, not horrible. I'd drink it again, it's perfect for a weekend, relaxing, or after mowing the lawn.

2.6/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5
Poured on tap at Syracuse's New York State Fairgrounds.
A: A nice golden color with a very faint amber tinge. Deeper than your typical cheap pilsner but still lacking in color.
S: Very minor aromas of citrus and hops on a yeasty boozy base.
T: More body than a Bud or a light beer but not overly strong of anything. Lots of bready flavor with a very mild hop bite. Not too noticeable but not terrible.
O: If you're near Canada and your options are domestic Lights and Labatt Blue, take the Blue. Otherwise get something else.
Serving type: on-tap
