3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The head is robust, the body light brown. It smells malty, bit fruity-banana, mild orange, yeasty. The taste is hop-aromatic, fruity, mild orange. Different, but could be more intensive, still ok and tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark and clear amber with good slight off-white head that lasted well. Aroma of grassy hopps, hint of hop bitterness, fresh. Taste of malts balanced with bitterness, grassy (presumably what the yak got fat on). Light body, moderate finish of clean bitterness. A refreshing summer brew, overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a white head. Only slight aromas of citrus and a little grapefruit. Taste is a little unimpressive due to weakness of most of the characteristic. I would have liked some more malt and a lot more finishing hops.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium golden, very clear with some loose off-white head. Nose is unimpressive at best, some citrus, hint of grapefruit and a light non-distinct caramel presence. Taste is clean, not a lot of malt character, some hops but not really enough. Hop flavor profile is one-sided and a bit flat. It would be nice to see a LOT more finishing hops in this beer. Malt profile would work better with a higher starting gravity however in this beer it falls flat and a bit thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty sweet aroma, slight hoppy nose reminiscent of some APAs. Looked good in the glass. Not much bitterness in the taste, quite sweet and malty. Fairly weak finish - not a particularly engaging beer but sound decision if the choice is between this and mass-market beer.
