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.

Best after 2/1/13.

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy tan head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, yeast, and some floral hop aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but pretty boring all around in my opinion.
