2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle... dark gold, super clear, off white head, good retention... moldy nose, weird character, light straw and cereal grain... taste isn’t all that bad, basically a bmc transition beer, but nothing I want a part of

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Clear straw color with a small white head. Sweet corn aroma. Little bit of grass as well. Vegetable flavors dominate. Slight dryness in the finish. I just can’t get on board with this.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear yellow gold with a busy bubble. A huge, sudsy head that takes forever to dissipate, but once it does, it ends up as a nice, creamy-thick head. The lasting head adds an enjoyable mouth feel as you drink. The yeast pours out ugly & lumpy.
Aroma of bread & yeast. Medium sweet, with a decent malt bitter balance. Average "yellow beer" palate. Light, but helped with a bit of texture from the head.
Overall, not a bad beer, but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is a clear bright golden honey-yellow. There is a fluffy white head with good retention and not much lacing to speak of.
Smell is giving the impression of freshly dried grains with a hint of citrusy hops.
Taste mirrors the aroma: freshly dried grains, slight citrusy hop presence. Very light, very carbonated, semi dry on the mouth...definitely a decent beer, doesn’t do anything groundbreaking, but doesn’t disappoint.

12oz bottle. Pours a bright yellow color with a white head. Aroma is bread, Grain. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, a little pine hops, with a light bitter finish. Pretty tasty for 4%.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz. bottle: This one pours a clear, golden yellow color. There was a bit of a white head on it that didn’t leave much lacing. Bit of a hoppy nose to it. Slight citrus and floral notes. The taste is pretty decent. A bit of malts, some bitterness, and a fairly clean, crisp taste. Very nice on a hot day. Worth haveing again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale golden color with a big fluffy head. Aroma of biscuits, some bread, noticeable hops. Not all that flavorful or interesting but falls into that "relatively cheap, not offensive, sessionable, available everywhere I drink" category.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is lightly bready with some corn and light yeastiness. The flavor is thin and uninspiring with some light bready maltiness and a very minimal hop bitterness. Thin and light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Not a whole lot going on in this one here. BMC substitute.
