New Hampshire

3.43/5  rDev +25.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 1222484FE0156. It pours yellow to golden with a short lasting fizzy head, which is pretty typical for the style.

Although it came from a green bottle the aroma was thankfully not overly skunked but it did carry some distinct barley malt and grain characters with a whiff of clean hops on the backside.

The body is thin to medium, which is again very typical for the style.

The taste is quite grainy with a slight acidity and crisp hop ending. Here is a beer with a popular advertising campaign and it is a average to above average for the style.
