Clear orange, bubbly white head. Nose is bready malt, caramel, minerals, water. Flavor is more bready malt, fruity notes, some hops in the finish. The whole thing is watery, distractingly so.

330ml bottle. Clear golden color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Fruity, sweet, some type of berries in aroma. Faint hops, malty, pointless taste. Very hard to describe. Thin mouthfeel. Not exciting at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-24-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a clear medium amber color with a small half finger of pure white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is mainly of a grainy and malty nature with some lighter hop aromas of a more grassy and herbal smell. Along with these aromas are some lighter smells of caramel and citrus.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and cracker malt taste with just a hint of caramel sweetness. As the taste advances the caramel fades and is replaced by more grainy tastes with just a hint of citrus hop flavor. At the end a bit of grass, floral flavors, and herb come to the tongue leaving a crisp and drier taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather thin side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The thinner feel and moderate carbonation are quite appropriate for the style and make for a more refreshing and easy drinking brew.
Overall – It’s alright and refreshing, but nothing too exceptional.
