Drinkable but bland; clear but not effervescent. Slightest bitter aftertaste with a tiny touch of sweetness. Probably about par for its genre - this is a drinkable beer and a solid choice for an afternoon kicking back on a pontoon, but nothing to write home about.

A - Hazy straw yellow body with small white head that dissipates quickly.
S - Very faint aroma of malt and maybe some citrus; not impressed
T - not great, but better than I expected. Pretty well balanced and not too citrusy. I'd drink it again.
F - Pretty smooth; not too thin; slightly fizzy, but not overly so
O - Not half bad; I'd buy again for a camping trip or after a day fishing

Pours a clear light golden.
Smell is faint. A little sweet malt and some floral notes.
Taste is very balanced. A bit of citrus. Slight sweetness.
Solid but not outstanding.

Bottle at basement bar; Admiral Fell Inn. Cannot see since it is simply being drank on bottle. Feel smooth, taste is mellow. Not bad. Better than I expected."

HEAVY SEAS GOLD 5/25/16

Another in the new beer club shipment. We get Heavy Seas in my state but I have not had this one yet.

Best by Sept. 28 2016. This could be almost two months old already.

a: Clear yellow gold with a ring of foam which soon disappeared. No lacing.

s: Bare hint of bready malt.

t; Balanced! No particularly outstanding tastes but bready malt and light hops.

m: Light side of medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o: Highly drinkable beer drinkers' beer, brew gold in that there is none of the adjunct sweetness, just some quality, very easy drinking brew.

Look: Slightly hazed pale gold amber. I failed to pour vigorously enough to coax out a good head but the little head that was there was white and fragrant.

Smell: Subtle and mildly sweet aroma of barley and honey.

Taste: Very well executed balance of nuanced honey like flavors and a touch of grassy hops. There are some good orchard fruit notes as well that are reminiscent of Pacific Rose apples.

Feel: Medium body and slightly dry but overall well rounded.

Overall: Very good and drinkable. Clean and balanced, definitely a well brewed beer.
