A slightly above average beer, but too mild for my taste.

Been wanting to try for a while and managed to pick up a howler. Quite impressed actually: citrus and floral on the nose and a super smooth drinker. Possibly spoiled because can the tall boy version be as good?!?

Not very good. From a can at High Noon Saloon for beer talk.

It's got a decent amount of flavor, it's just not very pleasing flavor. A bitterness that doesn't commend itself. A bit of lemon juice emerges.

Wait. It's getting better with each sip. (Orig. score: 3.45) I guess it's just really subtle. Takes a while to get your mind around its layers.

An okay ale with a slightly funky aftertaste. Not sure I'd drink again.

Look: Light transparent amber with a pure white pillowy head that clings to the glass as it dissipates
Smell: Floral tones, pine sap
Taste: much like the nose, balanced with light bready malts. Well balanced.
Mouthfeel: Coats the mouth with a dry finish.

Overall: nice brew, well balanced but kind of boring after a few sips.
