2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours brassy gold with a slight foamy white head. Aroma is lightly malty with a light hop mix. Med minus body. Flavor is a rather old malt with some citrus and grass - but the malt is roasty, and that’s somewhat interfering with the hop aspects. It’s drinkable, but not really working for me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear pale amber color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of pale malts, grassy hops and a bit of skunk and butterscotch. The taste is herbal hops, toasted malts and a bit of caramel. Tinny note as well. Medium bodied. Seems like a decent concept that is poorly executed.
