1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap @ Hops Golden. A touch hazy, light yellow appearance with a white head. Pretty dull pale lager nose with not much hops. Bitter, grainy pale malty flavor. Better than their Clearwater but that does say crap.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap at the Alexandria, Virginia location.
Pours a bright, clear yellow color with minimal head and a few bubbles on top as the head settles down. The nose is quite grainy rather than malty with some husk and fairly-strong astringencies. The taste is more grain and maybe a faint hit of some herbal hops. Astringent grain husks rule in this kingdom, though. Off, harsh finish. Light body and pretty far bell average drinkability.
Serving type: on-tap

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Hops Grillhouse & Brewery, Alexandria. Pretty similar to any given pale lager (BMC). Drinkable, but only by so much. Aroma inoffensive and almost non-existent, mild malt flavor, that’s about it.

Yellow pour with a non-retentive head and wash lace. Faint aromas, indistinct. Lightly bodied and thoroughly carbonated, grainy malts with a touch of corn to the tongue. Boring trend starting to form here.
