650ml bottle. Enjoy by 11/13/14 which is what I'm doing now, 8/30/2014.

A- Slightly cloudy medium copper body. Two finger white head with fair retention time and a thick white collar that sticks to the side of the glass. [3.5]

S- Citrus, a little bit of pine and bready malts. Nothing too complicated, the whole thing reminds me of tapioca to be honest. [3.25]

F- Grassy, hint of grapefruit, raw grains, bread, pine on the back end. Nothing too complicated but this is pretty solid. Not a ton of flaws. [3.75]

M- Medium bodied, not thin at all, good carbonation, nice dry pine finish mixed in with some of that freshly baked bread taste- presumably the yeast. Really not that difficult to drink. [3.75]

O- This is actually pretty decent. I mean, this isn't mindblowing by any means, but it hits the appropriate amount of hops balanced with a grainy malt backbone - without any off flavours - at a cheap price, which is pretty much a steal. [3.75]

Final score: 3.6375
