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

A: A very light yellow color with a bright white head.

T: This one tastes more like a Pilsner than an American Pale Ale. Very, very light boby, almost to the point of being watery tasting. Not what I would have expected from Magic Hat Brewing Company.

S: Not much there. Grains, very light malt and a subtle hint of lemon.

M: Not as crisp as one would hope. Lots of carbonation. Overall the mouthfeel is disappointingly light.

O: This is a big departure from Magic Hat's other beers in every way. I would definately not buy this beer again, since it tastes way too much like Bud, which I do not like under any circumstances. Luckily most other Magic Hat Brewing Company's offerings are very good. This one just is not one of them.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A light hazy yellow/gold. Very thin off white head that quickly disappears.

Smell: Faint smell of wheat, grains, bread.

Taste: Very sweet, some wheat flavor.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated and fairly light. Easy to drink.

Overall: At first, I did not like to sweet flavor, but it grew on me a lot. I find it very drinkable and a nice beer.

Serving type: bottle
