3.6/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Apperance: Pretty standard for a light ale. Decent level of foam and some good carbonation. Lacing is ok too.

Smell: Some cider and lemon qualities. Good.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Mostly some honey-like malt with a bit of cider-like fruitiness. Can't complain overall. Gets kind of boring after a while. Mouthfeel has a nice body.

Overall Drinkability: A bit disappointing, but still worth the try.

Serving type: on-tap

3.54/5  rDev +6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a can with an enjoy by date of 6/28/14; into a tumbler.
Appearance - bright yellow, bubbly carbonation; a thin white sheet of head that sticks around and leaves lots of lacing.
Smell - lemon, some banana and orange peel.
Taste - lemon and orange zest, some banana bread.
Feel - light, of course, flavorful early on, but an odd aftertaste and tounge coating to finish it off.
Overall - not my preference, but in a pinch I'd take a can or two to the pool.

Serving type: can
