3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance has a orange hazy color with a thin dissipating head leaving spotting lace. Smell is refreshing with the sharp citrus hops balancing with the malt. Taste is kinda dissapointing with what tastes like having more bittering hops with the malt with not much flavoring. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very refreshing and tasy for a nice fall day. Pours a bright golden yellow with a bit of white head. The nose is initially offputting and overly bland with mild grainy malts and a hint of skunk. Sweet caramel and bready malts with a finish of tart lemony hops a mild bitterness to add some character. Not a crazy beer by any means but certainly a good sessionable brew

355ml bottle pours blonde in color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains with some grass and floral notes. Taste is a grainy malty and light fruit sweetness with a light grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with modest carbonation. A light and easy to drink ale with balanced and full flavors.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy honey color with off white head and not much lacing. Aroma is grainy malts. Taste is lightly sweet, decent malts with no hops to speak of except for a lightly bitter finish as the malts show their straw and corn. Finish fades quick, emphasizing the light and thin palate. A clean sipper that might be OK on a hot day, but not enough redeeming qualities to look for it again.
