2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden with a quick, white head that settled to a scummy film. Grainy, lightly roasted, with sour fruit, almost sour milk. Dusty, floral hops late. First mouthful was as metallic as the fender off a Buick. After some opening up, a roasted malt character came out with light bittering. Could not detect the breadiness that was supposed to surface... maybe dark, dry toast. Intermittent sweetness made things interesting, but some metallic notes also surfaced to cancel out the fun.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Straw colored, lazily carbonated, and capped with a tall bubbly head, this brew has an aroma of sweet, doughy malts with perhaps a dwash of floral hops. Light bodied, it has a soft sweet malt flavor with a barely discernable hop taste. Clean finish. Okay, but basically uninteresting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BIG tall white head that lasts for ever.Very light golden straw color.light carbonation.Malty sweet aroma,some hops,and like Venom said an almost bread like smell,unbaked bread dough is more like it.some very faint hints of citrus as well.Very mild brew light to nearly no carbonation,mildly sweet,lightly malty,Mildly hopped.Very light feel in the mouth,slightly sweet,hoppy after taste that fades fast to nothing.Over all it's not a bad brew at all could use some more carbonation and maybe just a bit larger hop presence to bring this one closer to what it is supposed to be.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden straw with some fine particles. Thin bubbly white head. Trace carbonation. Light toasted bread aroma mixed with soft hops. Clean and medium bodied. Faintly sweet yet mildly hoppy. Easy drinking and not very complex. Loses some flavor mid ground. Finishes sweeter and soft and slightly fuller. Definately well made, just aimed for the light beer drinker. Overall a very respectable brew.
