3.83/5  rDev +21.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

The silky white head is substantial, and only recedes to about a half inch, which is constantly replenished by highly active carbonation rushing up from below. Swirling the last of the yeast sediment before pouring into the mix leaves some brown traces in the otherwise pristine white head, which leaves numerous trailers along the sides of the glass. The brew is a murky honey-amber color with some clarity at the edges of the glass. Probably would be much more clear if the sediment was left in the bottle, but who wants to miss the extra flavor and vitamins?

Fruity aromas greet the nose, with a yeasty background. This is carried through in the taste, which has some light grapefruit notes and good grain characteristics that are hard to isolate due to the exuberant carbonation. Enough hops to brighten the flavor, but not too bitter or overpowering. Altogether a mellow mouthful.

3.29/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a brown 12.7 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, actually a bit skunky. Taste is grains, mild hops, a bit of malts, refreshing but not exactly flavorful. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is OK, but nothing special.

3.21/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from 12.7oz bottle into 16oz Roanoke College branded tumbler pint glass.

Appearance: Cloudy golden in color with a medium-sized white head that looks a bit thin and dissipates quickly yielding only a bit of thin, bubbly lace.

Smell: Buttery with slight herbal and citric notes.

Taste: Begins sweet and lemony, rounding out to a bready flavor. Finish is nutty and a tad earthy before rounding out to more citric notes.

Mouthfeel: Thin body with light carbonation and a watery finish.

Overall: Not a bad beer, but nothing too exciting either. I wouldn't seek this beer out again, but I wouldn't be opposed to drinking it again, either.
