2.9/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Beer served had a pale yellow color and a light head. The aroma was bland with a hint of grain. The taste was generic light taste that does not inspire and the finish was light a bit watery. This is typical bland non offensive beer. Respectable drink for someone used to BMC macros.

Serving type: on-tap

2.38/5  rDev -29.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Faintly hazy, pale straw-colored body with a small, fizzy, white head.

Smell: Nose of light pale malts riddled with buttery diacetyl and maybe a few hints of floral hops. There's really not much beyond the butter though.

Taste: Very mild, lightly sweet malt character that, when teamed up with buttery diacetyl, gives the impression of honey butter. Which is fine for a piece of toast, but becomes hard to bare by the end of the glass. Almost no hop presence and certainly no bitterness to cut through the butteriness, letting the taste ride out from start to finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.

Drinkability: Butter up! I'll be spending a few days in Clarksville, TN visiting my dear friend Fifi and the brewpub that time (or at least the online beer community) forgot. And with this inauspicious, butter-soaked start, it's not hard to imagine why.

2.7/5  rDev -19.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served in a flight of 2 oz. samples.

Clear pale straw in appearance, with a thick creamy white head that leaves behind nice thick sheets of lace on the walls of the glass.

Nothing in the nose but loads of buttery diacetyl.

Light in body and mouthfeel with a moderate carbonation, the palate is fully of buttered popcorn with a clean, slightly dry finish, all balanced by virtually no hop presence.

Something must've been wrong with this batch, as diacetyl character overshone everything. If not for that major defect, the beer would perhaps be a decent light drinker.

A pretty utilitarian beer. The malt had a bit of saltine cracker note. The hopping had a vaguely German character, seemed to call out for a bit more to balance the malt. A little citric, some lemon in the background. Felt undercarbonated and a little flat in the mouth. More of a beer that would not get in the way of food, than a beer to be enoyed on its own.

3/5  rDev -11%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Aroma: Faint citric notes, but a very bland smell overall
Appearance: A pale yellow with a B cup of head. Traces of lace
Flavor: Very light, non-offensive taste. I did note a slight metallic twang in the aftertaste, they may want to move the hop schedule around, or take a hard look at what they are cleaning the tanks with.
Mouthfeel: Thin, borderline watery
Overall Impression: This is the standard brewpub answer to “So, do you have Bud?” A light introductory beer for the novice, not bad, but if you are reading this, you probably want to go for something a bit more taste driven. Would make a good session beer though.
