look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12 ounce bottle decanted into a tulip. 6.8% ABV.
Appearance: Dirty straw with a pretty solid chill haze. Decent head initially, but it died a quick death (3/5).
Aroma: There’s the apples. And there’s the yeasty, bready smell. Something very pear-like comes out as it warms, as does a touch of honey. But nothing about the aroma is overly aggressive (3.25/5).
Taste: This tastes so much like apples that I could probably convince someone it is a cider. There’s a little bit of hop bitterness at the end, but otherwise it is straight apple juice. It’s a very straightforward flavor. Almost painfully simple (2.75/5).
Mouthfeel: Medium body, light carbonation. I also get a hint of warmth from the alcohol (2.75/5).
Overall: There is very little about this beer that demands to be called out. It’s very plain and kind of boring to drink. I didn’t hate it, but I don’t know why I would ever order another one (3/5).
