2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Pours a light amber with a small white head. Aromas of malt and some grassy hop notes. Light biscuit flavors coming through but really not a lot going on here. Crisp light finish. It isn’t foul but it’s a bit bland.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rated 3/24/13. Portion of a 12 oz bottle poured into a Hunahpu’s snifter. From notes.
A: Pours a clear amber/copper color, with a rather dinky-looking white head. Looks pretty good regardless.
S: All I pick up here is some unsweetened caramel.
T: The faintest twang of fruity esters builds to a caramel-y finish. Extremely unassuming.
M: Crisp, dry, and light. If you’re going to showcase little in the way of flavor on the palate, this is how you do it.
O: Nothing wrong with this per se...it’s just so bland, though. Really just one step up from BMC in my opinion.
