1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very light golden, straw-like, with a very subtle haze to it. Head died out before I finished pouring. Mouthfeel was lightly carbonated, slightly watery and rather syrupy and cloying. Malt flavors were very sweet and milk-like. Almost had some nice nuances in the malts, but they were kind of hard to find and they became overpowered by the heavy sweetness and grass-like hops. Almost had a fruity thing going on. Some herbal-flavored hops, too, with just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Sweetness lingers unpleasantly into the aftertaste, without enough carbonation or hop spice/bitterness to keep it in check. Much too sweet and sticky for my buds.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Virtually no head. Body is light yellow.
Aroma is lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs, lemon), lightly malty (bread,
cookie), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a light note of banana.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet,
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Smells like someone spilled a little bit of weissbier into this. It's
light, no doubt, but actually kind of interesting in the aroma

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I’m not sure if this is a lager or not but tastes like the style. White foam, light golden color (SPN 2.5 or so), slightly bready and light malt sweetness and fruitiness. Very easy drinking. Could be cleaner.
