3.5/5 rDev +4.5%
On tap at Mellow Mushroom in Fayetteville, NC.
Poured with little to no head retention. Might be the beer, might be the draft system.
This beer was very well balanced from Hop/Malt. Almost a little too balanced for my liking; I expect a slightly more hop bite from my Pale Ales, but that's just preference. For me, this beer would have been a more fitting ESB, or an ale that very closely resembles their Cutlass Lager in taste and mouthfeel, just slightly hoppier.
Overall, decent beer. Not bad, but nothing to get all excited about. If in the mood for an easy drinking beer, I'd have it again; just wouldn't go seeking it out.

2.88/5 rDev -14%
A: Slightly cloudy amber color. Covered with a full 2 finger head. The head dropped quickly to 1 finger and left nice spider web lacing.
S: Mild sweet with caramel. Bready malt smells.
T: Sweet flavor with a slight corn taste to it.
M: Too carbonated. Very tingly.
O: I think that this would be easily accepted by someone that is used to American Adjunct Lagers. The taste profile is similar enough to be approachable. That is kind of he nicest thing I can say. It felt overly carbonated. The taste was similar to an AAL. I bought it because I liked the name.
