look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy orange / yellow with a medium lasting white head. Aroma and Taste has some citrus, lemon fruity notes, biscuit malt, yeast with some citrus floral hops notes. Palate is nice medium body, crisp with lively carbonation. Finish is sweet biscuit malt, fruity with some citrus and lemon flavor, some light tartness and a bit of spicy citrus floral hops for balance. Overall a good crisp and refreshing summer style ale

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Bottle poured into pint glass.

A - lightly hazy. Light head with very little lacing.

S - little to speak of. maybe a light sweetness

T - bright and pleasant

M - a little cloying, with a slight lingering aftertaste.

O - not bad, a decent representation of the style. There are better out there, but it's worthy of a glass.

look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1

poured into a pint glass from a bottle

slightly hazy golden color with not much head and zero lace

I get literally no aroma from this at all

taste is almost non existent, maybe a bit of malt and a touch of hops

mouthfeel is crispy and dry

overall, it looks like a beer and if feels like a beer, but it doesn't smell or taste like a beer.

I have another one of these that I will try later, and if it's different, I will edit my review
