3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden color with a pillowy white head, grainy and sweet with a subtle grassy hop bite in the finish, fairly crisp and clean overall, decent enough for what it is and I like that itís unfiltered, but itís not my favorite of the mix pack; great label artwork is a nice bonus; 12 fl oz bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Days Inn Charleston. Clear golden colored beer with white foam. Soft biscuit and doughy malts to the aroma. Thereís a good bit of apple esters, too. Maybe a hint of straw? Pretty light in terms of flavor, which I suppose is the point. Easy drinking and moderate sweetness of bread, grain, and ripe apple. Pretty decent.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle retrieved from North Carolina and served in a lager glass.
Appearance: Surprisingly clear for an unfiltered beer. Amber-yellow body. Modest size white head has good retention and leaves decent lacing.
Aroma: Suggests more hops than malts, with hints of pepper and citrus.
Flavor: Malt dominated up front with the hops quite subtle until the finish and aftertaste. Slightly bitter, herbal and lemony.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Finish dry and crisp.
Overall: A refreshing, somewhat bready lager beer that should work well with many foods.
