2.35/5  rDev -32.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Appearence: Pours a light gold (what're the odds) with a thin, white head. Head dissapeares rather rapidly leaving no lacing. Nice carbonation though.

Smell: Simple malt and hop aroma, with no real discernable scent. Very average smelling, with a bit of sulfer....

Taste and Mouthfeel: Pilsener? Nah. Light lager at best. Corn and cereal tastes mix with just a faint, tiny tiny bit of hop bitterness. Really a let down. The mouthfeel is watered down a thin.

Drinkability and Overall: The newest of CBW bottled brew, and this one (as with the others) is sub-par at best. CBW really makes some fabulous brews, but the 3 I've had in 12 oz. bottles were dissapointing and bland. Now, if only they'd bottle their Kolsch...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Fairly decent carbonation just a 1/4 inch of head that settles rather quickly. Bright clear yellow with mild bubbles.
S - A bit of pilsner malts, soft hop notes, swear I smell corn. Little to no skunk which is nice.
T - Very dry, slightly sour like a green apple flavor with notes and a minty sort of hop tone. Its actually quite good.
M - Light and fizzy easy to quaff back.

Overall quite a tasty brew worth picking up!
