Pours a brilliant clear golden yellow with a finger of white foam.

Toast, bready, fresh grain, light citrus, herbal hops.

Grapefruit and orange citrusiness, bready and toast-like malts, some malt sweetness.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, light, crisp, refreshing.

Overall, nothing incredible here but a solid brew nonetheless.

definitely the most generic beer happening at revolution. not a bad beer, but this one is brewed for the much less adventurous palate, not a throwaway, but a relatively uninspired brew. it is darker than the standard golden, with just a hint of amber to it, and a lace head an inch high. it smells and tastes like a mix of euro pils and pale malts, nothing interesting on the grain front. the hops are light as well, balancing bitterness without nuances of any kind. sort of an oatmealy sudsy feel to this one, with more body than is customary, and fine carbonation. revolution does some really cool stuff, but this one is just a beer to me, nothing to write home about.

big thanks to PHBoiler for this one. poured cold form the bottle to a sun king shaped pint glass a slightly cloudy gold with a 1/2 finger white foamy, long lasting head

faint aroma dark sugars and grassy hops.

light bodied, creamy smooth, medium carbonation, sweet up front with a subtle grassy hops bitter following up.

this is my second revolution brew and both have been solid. not spectacular, but very good.
