3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewery. Tan in color with a ring. This is, as expected, light fare. Nice malts and soft fruit. There is also a bright side here from a decent hop profile. Grassy and also citrus notes from them. A bitbof earth. This is a pleasant bitter.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured on kraft. Pours a darker copper with a creamy white head of foam. Good retention. Aroma is fairly nonexistent. I get a slight caramel and biscuit presence, but there really isnít much going on with this one. Taste is more of the same. Itís more malt forward than anything, but even there itís hard to say that this beer tastes like anything. Thatís the idea behind this style, though, right?
