look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- Dark copper color with minimal head and decent lacing

S- Metallic with hint of lemon and floral hops with a slight spoiled aroma

T- Metallic with a taste of lemon and malt sweetness that lingers in a good way for a while before the metal seeps in at the finish, slight hops at the end but still a little too metallic for my taste.

M- medium body, watery with a dry finish

D-Easy to drink

A decent beer but not one I would buy again. The middle malt balances nicely but only for a quick spell, finishes with way too much metallic overtones.

Mild taste making it very drinkable but not different than a lot of beers out there. It has a sort of earthy-malty aftertaste and low carbonation.
Cool looking bottle though!

Also it's 5.3% not 5.7% as listed on site, maybe it has changed recently.

A: single finger head with little retention on a clear amber golden body.

S: mostly sweet caramel malts.

T: slightly earthy with caramel malt sweetness.

M:lighter side of medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: simple but drinkable. Few qualities to deprecate it from others in the genre.

Local extra from sommersb, thanks Brian!

A- Close to a half inch white head on a sediment filled light amber body. Head retention lasted well into the session and lacing aplenty throughout.

S- Not getting a lot from the nose, perhaps a slight citrus.

T- Taste follows the nose, or lack thereof. Hops are there albeit faint, adds the citrus element. Good malt backbone.

M- Medium to medium-thin bodied, good carbonation.

D/O- Very drinkable, only if because there isn't a lot going on with it. No off-flavors, just very mellow in the taste profile.Grew on me over time. Could drink about 8 of these at a summer cookout no problem.

poured into a pint glass on tap. Pours a medium amber color with a small head

nice aromas of malts and some hops. While on the simple side, it is nice with solid depth

Medium bodied with a decent and smooth feel. A bit lacking on the mid with some flavors of malts and blood oranges

A nice brew. Very drinkable and pretty straight forward
