1.74/5  rDev -42.8%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

This beer pours a very pale straw golden color with a minimum of head, but lots of bubbles. Smells very faintly of yeast and coppery hoppiness, not too attractive. The taste is somewhat dry (no sweetness to speak of), but with a lot of coppery hoppiness, which is not good. Mouthfeel is watery and fizzy. Overall, it's an unimpressive attempt to do... I'm not really sure what the point of this beer is. The bottle says it's pure, as in no additives, but most beers don't use 'additives' anymore anyway. As for drinkability, I may be able to finish the glass, but I'll never have another one in my glass again.

2.11/5  rDev -30.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Beer pours a clear golden with a small white head that dissipates rather quickly. Decent amount of carbonation rising. Minimal lacing.

Aroma is practically non-existent. Very light hops and malts.

The best thing I can say about the taste is that it is not offensive. My comment to the others at my table was that it tastes like water with some light hops/malts.

Mouthfeel was light and lightly cleansing.

Overall, this beer is drinkable because it just goes down like water. Drink very cold with food on a hot day. Really amazingly light flavor. Better than macros that have an offensive taste [which are many], but nothing that indicates this is a good beer.
