look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pleasant amber color with a nice frothy, slightly off-white head. Carbonation is strong and evident in the pour.

Smell is very muted. The slightest bit of grain/caramel sweetness, but thats about it.

Taste is a little more full than the smell. Slightly sweet upfront then followed by a little bit of earthy hoppiness and ending with a hint of an adjunct-type aftertaste. Not a bad taste though, mind you, just not as rich as I might like for the style.

Mouthfeel is good for the style. Full and smooth, easy to drink. Drinks more like a lager than an ale really.

Overall this is a decent beer that is easy to drinkwhile maintaining a decent-enough flavor profile. Would be a good "conversion beer" or for good for outdoor parties/tailgating.

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

Clear, dark copper that verges on red with a rocky, almond head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving slight lacing and some carbonation behind.

Buckshot has a big, sweet caramel component with lightly toasted malt, honey and green tea in the background.

Well balanced between sweet and bitter, however, malt flavors dominate with nuts and caramel. The finish is pleasant, quick and mild with lots of tea flavors and background herbal notes.

A light body with vigorous carbonation that takes over with each sip. Alcohol as expected is absent.

This is a solid, sessionable beer. However, it lacks the qualities required to make it memorable. This would be a fine beer for tailgating or other outdoor activities.

I very much enjoyed this gift and think it is worth trying again.
