look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Medium-dark amber. Short just off-white head with little persistence. Appears slightly hazy.

Smell - Light sweet malts and caramel. Only faint citrusy hops.

Taste - Begins sweet, though a little watery, with a touch of caramel or toffee. Finishes with a medium dose of citrus and floral hops that I wasn't expecting after the nose. Flavor is good, but comes across as a little thin.

Mouthfeel - Medium-light.

Overall - Not a bad tasting beer, reasonably to style, and certainly not something I'd avoid, but the dominant impression I get from this beer is that its a little watery.

Pours a nice, soapy, off-white head that collapses, leaving soapy lacing. A floral, almost tart aroma at first - notes of sweet, biscuity malt. Radiant, amber-red. Starts off oddly bitter, sweet, hoppy, and tart. Builds into a floral hoppiness, a touch of spiciness, then as the hops become somewhat citrus-rind like and medium bitter, the malt appears. A nice malt flavor begins to meld with the hoppiness. Lingering bitterness over the malt in the finish.

This isn't too bad. It's a strange initial flavor, but it rapidly transitions into something very nice.
