Another sub-par beer from World Brews. This is not as bad as the copper lager but it doesn't even compare to Bud or Natural Light for flavor. Maybe I picked up a mixed six pack that was really old, but these aren't very good.

Pours a hazy orange-amber with little that did not stick around very long. Aroma is more on the floral side, orange blossom and honey notes and a bit of fruity malt. A bit sweet for me on the palate, it almost tastes like they use candi sugar, although I am sure that is probably not the case. Not enough hops to back up the sweetness and a watery finish to boot.

A: Pours clear gold with plenty of carbonation visible. Very little head.

S: A little citrus and hops, and that's about it. Rather boring.

T: Tastes mostly like it smells - Citrus and some hops. Boring and unremarkable. Tastes cheap.

M: Thin with a lot of carbonation.

O: Not much of a pale ale. This just tastes like maybe a tiny step above a cheap beer. Slightly below average to average at best.

Appearance is fizzy yellow with an average head and plenty of spritz in the mouth. Light body. A hint of hoppy fragrance along with cereal cooking. Some light flavors of malt and a modest hoppy edge. A little bit of resiny flavor. English muffin breadiness. Bitter metallic twang.

Bitterish bathwater taste at the finish. This seems to be a step up from the industrial lagers, but it's a small step. Still, however uninspired it's an almost drinkable light lager. Unpleasant bitter note makes me want to quit drinking it, though. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Von's supermarket in San Clemente.

A: two finger bright white foamy head, light golden straw color, no visible carbonation
S: light herbal aroma, grass, tea, lemon
M: on the lighter side, some carbonation feel
T: the hop character is slightly off, some burnt flavor, lemon, fresh grass
O: easy drinking, along the lines of a lawnmower beer, enjoyed on a hot day

Appearance: misty amber body with maybe a one finger white head that left some lacing on the glass on the first two sips.

Aroma: wow, a little pale ale like; did the Tap Room make a mistake and get this one close. A weak citrus note, a little fruity like, and not much else.

Flavors: a light citrus note, faint fruit, little bready, grassy hops, maybe herbal water

Mouthfeel: light on the delivery (thin), little citrus mid and finish, grassy on the finish, fine carbonation, light on the palate, weak aftertaste – no linger notes

To the Point: average at best; thin and weak come to mind; maybe a good introductory beer. I reviewed four beers from the Tap Room and this was their best. I would pass on any of their beers.
