Poured from a bottle into a tulip. Off-white one finger head that dissipates quickly. Light tight lacing also dissipates quickly.

Faint fruity aroma. Nothing special.

Light flavors and mouthfeel...again...nothing special. It wouldn't be bad with lunch...it isn't heavy or overpowering to spoil your lunch.

Not bad. Not great, but hey it's not Budweiser.

I feel bad about leaving a review with such little information...but this beer is just as informative and exciting.

I wouldn't activly look for this beer...but I wouldn't turn it down either.

Cheers

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

A - bright gold with a soft, white head

S - faint grass, citrusy

T - faint malt, faint grapefruit

M - light bodied, very crisp

This beer doesn't necessarily have the best flavor nor does it have depth but it is light and sessionable. There's nothing bad about this beer, but there isn't anything that stands out either. I won't buy it again, but I wouldn't turn it down if it was offered to me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a one finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave a very light level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is light and is of a bready smell mixed with a light caramel smell.

Taste – The taste begins of a malty breadiness mixed with a light caramel flavor. As the flavor advances some lighter earthy and herbal hops and a corn sweetness come to the tongue. These flavors mix with the bread and caramel to take the taste to its end.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light with a higher level of carbonation. It makes it rather drinkable and is good for the style.

Overall – OK, but nothing special here.
