Pours a place clear yellow with a one finger white head with decent retention and lacing. The aroma has lemon, grains, and biscuit malt. Not very appealing.

Tastes somewhat bitter and herbal. There is yeast, lemon, grassy hops, and biscuit malt. Very bland and unappealing. I am glad I only have one of these.

Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. In my opinion this is a poor effort at making a beer. I would not buy this again, and I wouldn't accept a free one either. This is listed as a Belgian Pale Ale, but doesn't taste like one at all.

Pours a clear straw yellow color with a rocky white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of faint lemon notes along with some grain.

Tastes of some faint lemon notes with a little malt sweetness. Citrus hop notes come through first. This leads to a little grainy sweetness. Not much going on here, comes off as a more aggressive PBR. Finishes watery.

Mouthfeel is medium-light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, I am not sure what they were going for here. It comes off as an adjunct lager to me, and not anywhere near a Belgian pale.
