This is one of the easiest drinking beer I have ever had. Spicy herbal hops in the nose, with a kind of bready honey malt background. Very clean on the palate, slightly grainy but still pretty crisp.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Smells malty. Gold color with a white head. A bit thin bodied, but has creamy carbonation. Kind of biscuit with noble hop. Very smooth and clean. Finishes reasonably dry with a light grassy hop bitter. Good in a bland sort of way. Course it’s really really good compared to Bud.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a light, but very nice, satisfying beer. It is gold with a bubbly, medium white head that steadily shrinks to a thin foamy ring and leaves only a hit of lace. The aroma is soft and sweet with grain, very flowery hops, and a little herb. The taste is full bodied grain, lots of green apple, and light but persistent hints of pine and herb, wityh a light bitterness that nevertheless persists through to a finish of grain and green apple with a hint of grass. It goes extremely well with food, which actually accents its flavours.
