A - Clear bright gold, slightly hazy, poured into a flared pilnser glass with a Bristol Brewing logo. A finger's worth of cappy white foam diminishing to thinness, leaving ribbons and streaks of fine lacing.

S - Slightly lemon scented. Faint background sweetness of oranges. Definitely not

T - Watery compared to last year's (2013) batch. A slight bitter hop bite followed by a
little bit of toasty malt.

M - Light to medium body, more towards medium I suppose. Interestingly low to
moderate carbonation.

O - Disappointing. I expected the same robust flavor as with the 2012 and 2013
batches, but fell way short. At least better then drinking a standard American Lager.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a conical Guinness pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are below average given the brewery. Bottle the fourth week of April.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a 1.5 finger head of beige colour, okay cream, okay thickness, and average retention. Colour is a predictable clear translucent yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Creamed barley, straw, and clean malts. Not appealing. An average strength aroma.

T: Straw, clean barley, and water - with some indistinct clean malts thrown in for good measure. A vague urine hint. Horribly simple. Quite boring and bland. A failure within the style. No yeast or alcohol come through. Somewhat stale.

Mf: Too smooth, too wet (watery), and too thin. Adequately carbonated. Weirdly faux-coarse in the third act.

Dr: Drinkable to an extent. It's so simple and boring it's unbelievable. I wouldn't get this again, even on draught. Only slightly better than an American macro shite lager.
