2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A big thank you goes out to riversideAK for this sample, a 12 oz brown bottle. Smells yeasty and perhaps citrusy at times. Dull copper appearance with little head when poured gently. Intial taste is medium hop bitterness then malts and even a hint of soap follows. Some smooth carbonation. A little mediciney on the finish, lingers a while.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured amber with a nice beige head that lasted forever. Aroma of toasted malt and a touch of sweetness. Toasted malt in the flavor, mild caramel sweetness, a bit of metal, and light spicy hops in the finish. Quaffable, light, sessionable etc, but not a lot going on.

Looks "pretty". Incredibly smooth drink with an ever-so-slight touch of hops to finish. Wish this was more available on tap.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly clouded amber. No head. Nose is slightly sweet with a touch of a dry leaf character. It is definitely a smooth flavor profile though. Feel is good on the liquid and the carbonation as well. Overall a good drinking experience.
