Poured into a 14oz pint glass. Bright gold color, with an airy head. The nose gives off scents of faint grainy malt, nothing more. The taste pretty much continues that theme: sweet, grainy malt, no hint of hops except in the faintest of senses. Yeast is lightly fruity. Bland and inoffensive is the best you can say.

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

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Yellow with a thin white head. Mild lacing on the glass and a lot of carbonation.

Smell: Hops, Rye, some wheat and malt as well. Bit of a skunked smell for a "fresh" beer.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of bitter hops and rye. Mild wheat.

Overall: Ok brew. Not my first choice.

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

Appearance - Golden amber beverage. It is tough to pour this one without creating a huge, thick foamy head that collapses quickly, but leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Smell - Light wheaty smell with a hint of citrus.

Taste - The beer is marketed as having rye, but I do not taste any. It also does not have any citrus taste to it. However, it is a nice, light beer; a little crisp and a little bitter. No mellow beer with hints of citrus and spice. Hints of wheat stick to the back of the tongue afterwards. I do not really taste any hops.

Mouthfeel - Refreshing and mid-ranged lightness.

Overall - Its an okay fall beer but perhaps too dry for a summer beer. Probably good to pair with most burgers and pub food. A beer I would buy a 6-pack of, but not a beer that I would buy a full case of.
