2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at Bev & More: Murky tawny color foreshadows murky nothing beer with caramel diacetyl aroma. Medium-lean body and moderate carbonation, with slight crystal malt flavor note blanketed by diacetyl. There’s a hop bluntness that is not flavor or bitter. Blah

A bit better than their IPA, but still not saying much. Light citrus in the aroma, like hops are an afterthouht. Caramel malts seem a bit heavy and shadow the hops. Flavor has a decent malt/hop ratio with the bitterness being a light-touch. Overall, it was a decent quaffer and easy to knock back 2-3 of these. Not bad and preferable to their IPA.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy yellow orange with a small head and not much lacing. Moderate grassy hops aroma and a touch of caramel. Flavors were similar and also uninspiring. Light to medium body and carbonation, and a dry finish. Average all the way.
