3.18/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Once again I was leery of the green bottle. This time with good reason. Poured an average head with bright yellow colored body. Smell was skunky. Taste did not reflect the smell. It is pretty tasty. Malty and a little hoppy. A slight roasted flavor. I would have given this beer a higher rating except for the smell. It lowered each score .5

3.06/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

500mL can, date stamped 275/13, so I'm assuming it was canned on October 2, 2013. Maybe a bit past its prime, but I'm sure it hasn't been affected a whole lot, if any.
L - golden with nice clarity, fizzy white head dissipates quickly
S - grain, spicy grassy noble hop, yeast
T - grass, possible adjunct grain, spicy noble hop
F - dry and crisp, lighter body
O - this was always in my father-in-law's fridge and I hated it so much, but coming back to it, it's not that bad. I'd rather drink something else, but it's not as terrible as I remember.

2.98/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

Pours golden and is very clear.. good head on this one that slowly fades

Smells grassy with a hint of apricot?

Tastes pretty good.. a smooth drop with a slight hint of floral hops (minimal but there)

For the price this is a very good buy. Will be getting a few next time.
