2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is like an adjunct laden macro with only a strange yeast separating it from a lager. The appearance is gold with a two finger head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is a dud.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a soft translucent amber with a one finger frothy offwhite head. The nose is earthy and herbal on the hop side, crisp malty character, some sweetness, mild corn. The flavor is a tad grassy, herbal hops, nice balanced malt sweetness, background bitterness that leaves a residual waxy character. Palate has a very nice balance of malt and hops. Crisp on the out. Nicely balanced and easy to session.
