4.39/5 rDev +40.3%

Starts out rather grainy but them becomes biscuity with some honey notes. Tastes great on a hot and muggy night. Not going to wow too many BA's, but we need more session beers. At 3.8% abv this one of the few true session ales brewed in the states. We need more.
Serving type: on-tap

I've been impressed with Natty Greene's IPA and other beers, so I was intrigued to try this beer which is now included in their 12 pack sampler. We'll see... .
-Appearance 2: Imagine a pint glass filled with lemon kool-aid. Yep. Non-existent head quickly dissipated into a swirly, CO2-enhanced film. Lots of CO2 bubbles popping up all over the place.
-Smell 3: Pleasant bouquet. Nothing special. Lots of grainy, adjuncty scents. Not bad, but certainly not great.
-Taste 2.5: Front tastes of a watered down barley. Middle is where the CO2 bubbles attack your palate and it is difficult to taste anything. Finish is slightly barley/grain/adjunct. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. No hops, no nuances, no nothing.
-Mouthfeel 2: Just like water in your mouth. Nothing added from the carbonation other than little tickles on the tongue.
-Overall 2.5: This beer isn't as bad as it is just...bleargh. Just nothing. A true disappointment. I cannot believe this swill was produced by the same brewery that brewed Buckshot, Southern IPA, Brown Ale... . Sad, really. Natty Greene needs to pull this recipe, take it out to the back yard and set it on fire. If this beer is included in their sampler from now on, I will not be buying any further samplers from now on. Avoid.

3.38/5 rDev +8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with some moderate amounts of golden yellow and light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall white head that quickly reduces to to a small patch of extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of cereal grain malts with some light honey and just a touch of herbal and earthy hops.
T: Moderate flavors of cereal grain malts with some light honey and a fair amount of sweetness. Very light amounts of herbal and earthy hops that contribute a light amount of bitterness that fades almost immediately.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.
O: Super easy to drink and with this low an ABV, you could easily drink this one all day long - the definition of a session beer. Matches really well with just about any food.
