Nothing special. Aroma is very mild, notes of bready malt. Malt come through in taste, with hop finish.

Poured into shaker pint from 16oz can. Aroma is bready, crackery, no hop aroma noticeable. Taste follows, biscuity, malty, bready. Balanced with a clean bitterness.

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"Meh. Caramel malt, biscuit malt, and some faintly fruity and bitter hops in equal amounts. Nothing about this one stands out...not even quite to average for the style."

EithCubes (5067) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Pint can. Nose is heavy dough with dull caramel and dank earth and spice, very promising intensity for a 4-0 beer. Pours transparent copper with slightly above-average carbonation, a rocky and clingy beige head. Watery light body very soft with some extra doughy umph, flavors as mentioned above with a vein of very mild citrus in the middle, medium sweetness with light and somewhat rubbery bitterness, slight hints of nuts at volume and suggestions of complexity despite most metrics marking this malt character as boring or undercut. Little bit of an acrid tang I find unwelcome here, but high drinkability, would gladly have another.

Moab, UT - on tap at the brewpub. Sparkling medium copper pour with a decent off-white head. Fresh lake water aroma. Flavor is pleasant but slightly bland. Slight caramel notes, light citrus bitterness, some nuttiness. Smooth mouthfeel.

bhensonb (11382) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Can from Brewforia. Pours dark hazy gold with a slight white head. Aroma is just malty. Med minus body. Flavor is malty with perhaps some citrus. Itís not really very tasty. Yet it does have more flavor than a macro lager! Even gets some bitter in the finish. Not much tho.

Mild grain and earthy malt aroma. Light orange color. Subtle sweet taste. Light, frothy body. A good session beer for mountainside excursions.
