3.18/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I had this on tap in NYC but I received a bottle via trade with orcasteve, many thanks.

The appearence is a cloudy orange with a light ring around the edges. The nose isnt too potent. Maybe a little citrus and some malt. The taste is some bready malts and citrus hops. There is a fair amount of hop bite in the finish along with some sweet malt notes on the finish. THe mouthfeel is pretty medium with low carbonation. This was better on tap if as I recall. Overall a solid offering but could use a bit more hop punch.

1.64/5  rDev -55.9%
look: 2.25 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Why do I think a slightly hoppy Bud Light. Better than Coors but not by much. Very disappointed. I really would have been better off with a Bud Light or Coors and saved about five bucks! I would not recommend this beer at all. It's the first High Point I've tried and probably the last.
