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

A - Pours straw colored with a one and a half fingered head. Lots of bubbles stick to the sides of the glass. Quickly dissipates to minimal lacing.

S - Dark caramel and malt. Very sweet smelling.

T - Light and sweet, some fruity esters, possibly banana. Very mild bitterness in the aftertaste.

B - Very light body and carbonation, almost a bit watery.

O - A bit of a letdown, definitely needs more depth in both the aroma and flavor profile, along with a slightly fuller body to prevent it from feeling like a light beer. Would probably not get again.

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

S: Floral and spicy hops, clean pils malt

L: Hazy golden yellow, white dense head that dissipates quickly.

T: Fairly clean malt with some herbal undertones. Medium low spicy bitterness leads to a clean maltiness, light. Finishes slightly spicy with a prominent cereal note. Quite dry in the finish, some fruitiness as it warms.

M: Medium low body, medium carbonation.

Not bad, not one of BBC's best efforts.
