Rating #837 - December 16, 2013 -Beer 16 in the Craft Beer Advent Calendar - .Amber brown pour with a creamy white head that fades quickly. Mild citrusy hoppy with mild grassiness in the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium carbonation, delicate bitterness in the finish - but not overpowering, very balanced, but boring. Not overly dry hopped or bitter in the finish.

Not as offensive as Coors light but zero flavor. I think water has more. Waste of time and money to pull the cap off this one. Day 16 craft beer advent calendar.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Craft beer advent calendar day 16! Bit of a Gusher here. Pours a slightly hazy though mostly clear golden colour with big soapy white head that settles and becomes more dense. Aroma is overly sweet malts maybe even corn, light citrus and grassy-chlorophyll like (likely too long of hop contact maybe even some oxidation). Flavour is sweet corn and light malts, light citrus, vegetal / chlorophyll off flavours possibly from too much extraction of the hops and overall a mild less than great bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
341ml brown bottle. Gold pour, a touch hazy, small white head on top. Nose has some citrus and fruity notes (apricot? applesauce?). Taste has a bit of sweetness and some mild citrus, light fruitiness. Light bitter finish with grass and citrus rinds. Overall seems a bit underdeveloped and just a bit off. It doesn’t really come together for me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
CBAC day 16. Pours a ear yellow gold with a small white head that leaves lots of lace. Aroma of pale malts, corn, light dme and a light citrus hop aroma. Taste is citrus hops with some sweet pale malts and a bit of dme/corn. Not sure why it seems artificial flavored and the hop bitterness throughout the finish is a bit unbalanced as well. Overall though it is a crisp and refreshing beer just had better pale ales.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not much aroma to speak of, a light hoppy aroma with a touch of citrus. Poured from a bottle. Had a big foamy, fizzy head that took a minute or two to die down. Taste of hops with malt tones, a touch of citrus (lemon, oranges). Aftertaste is a bit off. Could have been better, could have been worse.

Advent 16. Dark straw. Fizzy but light head. Minimal scent. Body is light with strongish hops but an off finish, a little diesel. A little tinkering and this could be a good quaffer. Sweetness and hops are encouraging.

Yellow pour. Aroma is white bread and a touch of lemon and piney hops. Tastes like hop water. Not much malt profile, crisp hops.

Poured from a can, this beer pours your standard straw colour with a little fluffy head. Aroma includes notes of grains and cereals, and tasting notes are a little bland. More cereals, corn, and sweet malts. A simple refreshing beer.
