2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle to shaker.
Appearance: Light gold, decent white head, clear.
Aroma: Faint. Some citrus. Otherwise leaves almost no impression on me – I don’t have a cold, do I?
Flavor: So faint it’s really hard for me to tell. I get some grain and a mildly hop-bitter finish.
Palate: Light/thin body, medium carbonation. Dry finish.
Overall: I’m having a hard time with this. On the one hand I think this beer achieves what it purports to (it is indeed smooth, clean, and sessionable as the commercial description claims), and I could see times where this would be exactly the right beer for the moment. On the other hand those are moments when I don’t particularly want to think about, taste, savor, or enjoy the beverage – those times where I want to go to a pub with friends and order a few pints of something that is cool, drinkable, utterly unobtrusive and forgettable, when I would be just as happy ordering water if water contained alcohol. And it’s hard to give an overall impression of a beer that seems best suited to make no impression at all.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
