2.77/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance- Body is a fairly clear apple juice color. Continually effervesces, but has a very, very small head (despite an aggressive pour). Lacing is also very short lived. .

Smell- Very nice malt sweetness, with hints of hay, and just enough corn to make it interesting. Very crisp when it's first poured, but starts to get overly sweet and cloying as it warms. Very inviting however.

Taste- Tastes nothing like it smells like. Some malt sweetness comes through in the taste, but a more more vegetative flavor predominates. Flavor is quite thin. A slightly sour after-taste.

Mouthfeel- Light body. Maybe a tad over-carbonated. Probably causes the thin taste.

Drinkability- Ehhh....not awful, but not a great blond either.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a thin collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of biscuit malts, pale malts, and sweetness are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is mostly dominated by flavors of pale malts and has some sweetness. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather sweet compared to other beers in the style but isn't overly difficult to drink given its lighter bodied mouthfeel. Nonetheless, it still seems to be bland.

Poured from a bottle into my English pub glass, golden yellow but a harsh smell. Taste is very good more flavorful than a macro but not as crafty as one would think, solid beer
