2.3/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of grain, sugar, and some metallic aromas. Taste is the same but there is also an off flavor that I can’t put my finger on that is almost medicinal. There is a very light bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer that is somewhat undrinkable, especially with the off flavor I am getting.

3.13/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured chilled in flared glass

A: light yellow; clear; robust carbonation; adequate head that dissipates quickly
S: thin, almost odorless; sweet malt
T: light, somewhat lemony; watery; little in the way of hops (of course), and the malt is not all that prominent either; very easy going down, and no wretched aftertaste; that's not bad for this genre, so it gets higher marks than most of this sort
