Boring beer. Pours a light copper with very little head. Smells of some malt, but not much transfers to flavor. Very thin and mostly bland. Not bad, and quite drinkable, just not very interesting.

floydslip (201) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Deep amber beer with a medium foamy eggshell head. Weak nose of candied nuts, caramel, and toffee, but it’s pretty friggin’ faint. Flavor is mild and watery. I guess there’s some malt there, but it kind of just lays flat on your tongue. It finishes with a bland bitterness. Overall, this beer is pretty tepid. Mouth feel is decent, I guess.

Reimer96 (1342) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Pours a clear copper color with a dense white head. Aroma of biscuit, caramel and earthy floral hops. Taste is caramel malts, biscuit and light earthy hops. Nice smooth bitterness into the finish with a medium low carbonation. Excellent bitter that’s well rounded and full flavored while being light and sessionable.

loubar (85) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 20, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 12 oz. bottle from City Beer. Nose of light yeast. Smooth bready malt taste over a slight hop bitterness. Flavors of cereal and biscuit. Not roasted. No floral hops. Not skunky or watered down. Not complex. Light, basic, smooth and satisfying malt creaminess in the lager tradition. It isn’t earth shattering, but with the low ABV, it’s a a clean and refreshing session beer.

Nice light malty smell. Followed by a nice malt taste in your mouth. Stronger malt taste going down. Nice ale.

Had this at a soccer game in Dallas...was better than Bud Light. Had some malts and caramel in there. Wasnt too bad. Worth a shot for an easy going beer

Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderate, pine hop. Appearance: small, off-white initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, medium-amber body. Taste: lightly bitter, nutty, initial flavor and lightly bitter, bubble-gum and licorice finish with average duration. Palate: light-to-medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: unique (strange) flavor.
