3.55/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: The pour is a clear amber color with very little to no head on it. S: The nose is quite light and un-impressive. A bit of nuttiness with toasted malts and not much in the way of hops or anything, to be honest. T: The flavor follows the nose for the most part, but is a bit better off. Still toasty and biscuity with a slight nutty character. There is a mild bitterness to the beer as well. M: A medium bodied beer with a moderate level of carbonation. D: Not awful, but not something I would really be interested in having again. Pretty bland and mediocre, which is not something I expect from Green Flash.

On-tap @ the Green Flash Brewery

A - Poured a copper color with a small white head that leaves lacing behind

S - The nose is pretty light some roastiness in the malt

T - Follows the nose not much going on some light roasted malt flavor

M - This beer has a medium body with medium carbonation to it

D - Its just kinda average all around I love big beers but I would love for a beer like this to be available so there's a low abv option at the bar this beer won't blow you away and won't get you drunk, within reason, so its worth a shot

An American interpretation of a British bitter. Strong English hops and weak toasted malts. Like an American Pale Ale with Northern Brewer and Goldings subbed in. Medium body and amber color. Aroma of woody hops, but not overpowering. Carbonation a bit higher than you'd expect from a real ale.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a light amber, mild head, some lace.

S: Very grainy, heavy cracked wheat bread, too one-dimensional for me.

T: Nice balance of malt, not over-hopped. Cracked wheat, some lemon and piney hops. Solid little brew.

M: Smooth, clean, a bigger body than I'd think for 3.2%.

D: Not a mind-blowing bitter, but a likeable brew. Something I'd much rather have on cask though.
