look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Clear light (and I mean light) brown with a small 1/2 inch head that fades to a film. Weak lacing on the glass on the drink down. Smells of sweet malt and bubblegum. Tastes of watery apple juice and perfume. Somewhat flat and watery in the mouth. Horrible beer.

On-tap at Big Bear Mountain Brewery

A: The pour is a clear golden color with pretty much no head at all.

S: The nose is sweet malts with some light caramel and honey, and (again with these guys) oranges. Some hints of butter at moments, too.

T: This is pretty malt forward with some light toast and bread. There is a slight citrus flavor of sweet oranges and a definite taste of butter. The bitterness is minimal.

M: The body is light with a pretty low level of carbonation.

D: This one is alright if you like buttered toast with orange marmalade. Not really for me.

@Bigbear Brewing

App- Im not sure what color you call apple juice but this was that color. Small thin ring of bubbles. No real cling.

Smell- I got just bland notes like my Mr. Beer kit. A bit doughy and wheat with some pear juice.

Taste- This was just bland. I really dont get much but the flavors carry over from the nose. Wasnt horrible as Chris said just lacked flavor. Quenching in a BL kind of way. Drink it cold, that way flavors are masked.

Mouth- A bit of a light medium body with a medium carbonation. Residual dough and grass flavors.

Drink- I get where this was going but just didnt hit the mark. Least favorite today.
