On tap at SLL tasting. Pours slightly hazy gold with thin white cap. Aroma is cereal grain and floral hop. Flavor is slightly more hoppy but is uninspired. Light bodied with a thin mouthfeel, crisp finish, and moderate to high carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Per the commercial description, no. No it’s not reminiscent of an IPA. It has a modest hop nose if at all, a bit of straw. Somewhat clean sweetish grainy flavor, no hop flavors, almost no finishing bitterness. Empty flavor. Not a watery body thankfully, and surprisingly given the low ABV. I get the vaguest hint of strawberry somehow, so maybe not so clean afterall. Anyway, it’s kind of pointless. When I want a light lager (which is mostly never), I’m not gonna pay craft beer prices for it.

12oz bottle pours a clear pale golden with a large white head. Bready malt aroma with some yeast and light hop. Very light, bready yeast and caramel malt with light citrus hops and a mild bitterness on the finish. Not bad, drinkable.

Bottle. Clear yellow with a thin, foamy, off-white head that lasts whisky as well as the lacing. Aromas of sweet grain, light biscuit, pine and citrus. Flavor is the same with some yeasty notes. Light bodied, crisp with a dry end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head that dissipates fast. Taste is of grass, grain, hops, citrus and malt. Similar aroma. Has a mostly full body with a slight dry and bitter finish. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I don’t know where this one goes wrong exactly, but it does. Thin, skunky, anemic yellow, bitter without needing to be.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
from old notes:
Tastes light a bad or better Heineken. Either way I must hate this style. Super dank ripe fruit yuckness. Maybe just not in the mood. Bottle at tavern 23 in New York.
