12oz brown bottle. Gold pour, light haze. Ok sized white cap on top with average looking lacing. Fruity nose, light citrus notes. Taste has caramel and fruit, touch of lime-ish citrus hop. Plain finish, not a lot of bitterness, some lemony and light orange peel citrus aftertastes. Average carbonation and body. Not very memorable.

Bottle pour yellow orange with moderate floaters. Nose of some dank hop, slight fruity, and caramel malt. Initial taste slight floral, then almost corn like sweetness. Some bitterness in the finish. Nothing spectacular, but nothing too off putting either.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle that erupted upon opening. Pours a golden color with small white head. Aroma is a mixture of hoppy citrus and grain, with emphasis on the latter. Light bodied with underwhelming flavor. Watery with a touch of hops and a bit of sweetness. Boring and mostly bland. They should put Genesee on the label instead of trying to disguise who brews this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Genny brewing a craft beer, that is something.. Anyway, bottle from total wine and more in claymont. Pours clear copper with a small white head and a lot of carbonation. The aroma is muted but has some mild grassy notes and a little caramel maltiness. The taste is lightly bitter up front and then is overtaken by a caramel sweetness. This is alright but nothing exciting.. a little more of a malty APA than hoppy in my opinion. A little watery..

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a semi-transparent burnt-orange with sticky off-white lacing. Smells hoppy and malty. Tastes like it smells, but weaker. Average on the palate. Okay.
