bad. Fizzy and watery with a harsh flavorless bitterness at the finish. I feel like it’s stripping enamel from my teeth with badness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper in color with a mild, sweet aroma of caramel malt, candy sugar, and bitter hops. Drinkable, and not too light on the palate. Still, it’s a kinda thin beer with little finish and no depth.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Pours a nice copper reddish color, with only a slight head. Had a sweet malt aroma. Light sweet malt flavor with slight hop notes. Not a bad lighter style beer.

Bottle, dark amber color. Smells like malt. Taste of malts and small amount of hops. Just to watery... not much going on here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz - Clear dark orange, thin off white disappearing head. Toasted grainy caramel nose with a slight biscusity popcorn undertone. Light roasted caramel malt flavors are balanced on just a touch of earthy citric hops. Light bodied with a soft bittersweet finish. Not awful as the score might indicate, but nothing to write home about either. Probably better with food...
