look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

From a bottle into a pint glass.

Gold color with no head and no lace. Lots if carbonation.

Smell is floral both bread and yeast. All are faint in the nose.

Taste is sweet and bread like. Bitter yeast on the tongue that fades fast. Taste like smell is faint except for the bitterness.

Overall weak flavor and smell with short thin mouth feel. Price wasn't bad.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pilsener glass from an undated bottle purchased yesterday. Consumed on January 27th, 2015.

Beer pours a slightly hazy clear golden/amber. A moderate pour produces a two-finger white head that provides some sheeting during the drink-down. Plenty of carbonation bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass even 30 minutes later.

Aroma is lightly floral. Solventy alcohol note present. Honey and grain husks also in the mix.

Flavor is much like the nose: sweet and thin up front with a slightly boozy honey kick at the end. Moderately bitter.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the carbonation provides a slight creamy texture. Nice.

Overall, this is not something I would go out of my way to drink again, but it was not at all as bad as I feared after reading some of the reviews here.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden-yellow-orange color with a small head of fizzy white foam. The head fades very rapidly, leaving a bit of foam on the surface of the brew and very little lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a grainy and bready smell along with some other aromas of a hay smell. A little bit of a grass smell and some aromas of a very light, almost smoky, and salty smell are there as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a very smooth bready taste that has some hints of light fruit of orange and pear mixed within. As the taste advances some light hay and grain come to the tongue all while the fruit fades and is replaced by some caramel. At the end, just the slightest hint of alcohol and a tiny bit of a floral taste are joined by a little resurgence of the fruit, and end up leaving one with a rather pleasant and somewhat smother and sweet lager like flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin for a brew of 7.2 % abv with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner body makes this a much more approachable and refreshing brew and really matches well the more lager like flavors of the brew, making this one an easy drinker even with its slightly higher abv.

Overall –This brew actually delivered much more then I was expecting form the look or smell. It was a rather enjoyable brew overall. While not something all that exceptional, it was both rather refreshing and flavorful. Not a bad one to at least try.
