2.59/5  rDev -26%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Appearance on this beer is extremely clear and crisp. I wish this beer was as satisfying as its looks. Head was light and barely present even directly after pour. Color resided somewhere inbetween a light to medium amber hue.

Smell gave off a slight sour note, with lots of malt. The main components I picked out were an aromatic, or biscuit malt attached with a wandering earthy stench, this was mainly experienced when smelling, not while drinking.

Taste was about as boring as a newcastle that has been sitting out in the fridge for a few weeks. The beer was carbonated properly and extremely fresh, but there was just absolutely nothing redeeming about the taste of this beer. When taking a sip, the bitterness of the malt and hops are paired extremely well, only to be let down with the faint taste of acidity and absolutely no lingering aroma of hops.

The mouthfeel of this beer was light, and barely present. I struggled to not drink this beer extremely quickly as it went down like a glass of carbonated spring water.

Overall for 3.25 a pint, I don't feel let down, but I will not be trying this beer again unless it is in a bottle and it is free.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours a dark copper with tanish head that foams up pretty good with a hard pour. Head sticks around in a thin film, lacing sticks to the glass ok. Smells like bread, fruity mango or peach maybe no hops really. The taste very much a bread craker taste, not really tasting the fruit I smell. There are no hops just a slight bitterness and not to sweet. Mouthfeel is medium, it has body just not really flavor to match. Overall I would drink this anytime and could problay drink a ton, its easy to drink and has more flavor then ur standard beer i guess.
