look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Undated bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy straw color with an off-white head that dissipates quickly. Initial impression is a little hit of citrus up front, which fades quickly into pale malt. Carbonation is on the high side - not fizzy, but approaching fizzy. Light-bodied. Finish is dry and slightly sweet. 16 Mile can do better than this.

Pours a very light golden with a thin white head which is quick to fade. Smells of malts, yeast, and a tickle of citrusy lemon hops. Body is thin and a bit watery, high carbonation. This is a decent beer, but not too complex or something to seek out.
