Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of citrus and piney hops, with some sweet grain. Tastes of watery citrus hops with sweet grain. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, slightly overcarbonated. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

Pours a pale amber with good clarity. Small whitish head disappears quickly. Some small amount of lacing left behind.

Aroma is rather unpleasant. Vegetal. Stale. Some honey and floral hops. Mild caramel and toasted coconut.

Taste is very flat. Caramel and toffee. Grass, honey, and earth.

Medium body with low carbonation. Flat on the tongue and the flavors don't last.
