look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A slightly hazy, deep golden body is capped by a short lid of frothy bright-white foam that holds better than average before dropping to a standard collar and whispy surface covering. The nose is clean and welcoming with a splash of lemon and some grass over a subtly sweet, wheaty and biscuity malt. The body is medium and it's lightly crisp across the palate. The flavor mirrors the aroma with the addition of some subtly toasty and mildly nutty notes added to the malt character - it's not complex but it's definitely clear that this is an all-malt beer. It finishes drying as the sticky malt slowly fades to reveal a dull, lingering bitterness. Not bad! Despite the gimmick of the label there's an actual beer in the bottle! Coast Range obviously brews better beers than this, but there's nothing objectional about this one either!

Pale yellow straw color pours to a macro styled single finger head that melts quickly to no lacing at all. Large bubbles constantly rising from the bottom of the glass look like forced carbonation.
Aroma is sweet malt with light hops...Balanced
Taste immediately of sweet hops reminding me of MGD swetness...very light hop aftertaste.
Slight corn aftertaste.
Drinkable and sessionable, but not for me.

3.11/5  rDev -5.8%

appearance: The pour produces a fluffy .5" white head. Fed by loads of bubbles from the bottom, it recedes very slowly. The beer is a bright, golden straw color.

smell: There's a light sweetness, an aroma of cooked/overripe vegetables (beets and creamed corn, for example), and a low to moderate hop aroma. Hard to pull the flavors apart sometimes, as the off aromas confuse my nose.

mouthfeel: The carbonation is a low medium, and smooth on the tongue. The body is medium. The mouthfeel isn't so good after the sip.

taste: Better than the aroma. Some sweet light caramel maltiness, low hop aroma and bitterness, and something I can't describe...maybe grass. Not bad.

drinkability: ok, but nothing great

Pours a clear golden colored ale with a not bad at all white head.

Smell is sweet side of malty with a bit of wild honey scent and citrus hops scents notably grapefruit and pineapple.

Taste is nicely balanced with the citrus hop preventing a perception of malt sweetness. Tasty citrus and oak fight to be the strongest flavor and the citrus wins in the end but just barely. A very mild and tasty APA with about a perfect balance. I am shocked by whose name is on the label, not a brewer with a good reputation.

Good Mouthfeel.

Very good in the drinkability department. A super tasty beer from a maker I would have never thought had it in them, Best Coast Range Brewing beer ever.

Pours a two-fingered white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Nice golden amber color. Slight malty & hoppy nose. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Starts sweet, finish is sweet/hoppy, not the usual pale that is loaded with hops. Thanks to my brother-in-law for finding this - nice addition for my bottle collection. $8.99 for a 6-pack 12oz bottles from Liquorama Upland, Ca.

Light orange gold color, Small white foamy head. Aroma is hoppy and grainy. A medium bodied lager beer. Malts are sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Its sweet and fruity with some hop bite to it, not at all what I expected. A smooth tasting, nicely balanced lager. I was expected some sort of macro tasting swill, but this ‘nude’ beer’, although gimmicky, it very drinkable. But I would not want to have to drink it all the time. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a little metallic.
