2.23/5  rDev -26.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle.

L - Light thin head that dissapears quickly. A very thin and clear gold to orange colour.

S - very light on the smell. Sweet malts and some grains. Nothing special at all.

T - initial sweet malts with a more bready after taste.

M - Light body, initial burst of carbonation that settles down in the mouth pretty quickly

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

330 ml bottle, BB date stamped 20 July 2014. Innovative color-changing crown on the back label indicates proper serving temperature.

Golden-amber body has excellent clarity and is topped by a semi-durable head. Minimal lacing.

Decent, lightly sweet flavor and aroma. Seems to need more hops for balance.

O: not bad but not worth seeking out.

2.78/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75

A: Pours slightly gold of straw. Accidentally aggressive pour leads to two and a half fingers bleached hed. Carbonation is moderate, with bubbles rising to the surface. Retention is moderate. Lacing is good. Head is made up of fairly large bubbles.

S: The bottle may as well be green. Mildly skunky, with herbal/vegetal hoppiness. Malt is crackery. Slightly metallic.

T: Pretty big rush of malt sweetness up front. Bready and a little doughy. Hops are mostly muted. Towards the finish, there is a mild surge of the cooked veggies/herbal component. Malt sweetness ultimately wins out, but it's not much of a battle. Finishes with a cooked cereal sweetness.

M: Not quite as carbonated as expected. Mouthfeel is soft, but not so soft as to be labeled creamy.

O: Drink it cold and it's an average EPL. Letting it warm shows you its inner demons. Do not let it warm.

3.16/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours clear and golden color. The two fingers of white head have medium retention.
There is a nice malty aroma, which isn't too strong nor too weak.
The taste is expected: sweet at the beginning, followed by a pleasant bitterness all teh way to the finish.
Easy to drink and refreshing.
