Bottle. Clear yellow pour with white head. Aroma of nuts and grass. Flavor is light of yeast, grains, and grass. Light body with a crisp finish. It didn’t leave much of an impression, but I’d have it while watching the World Cup again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, yellow body with a smallish, fizzly, white head. The aroma is corn and wheat. The flavor is very similar. The corn and wheat stand out and this tastes a whole lot like a macro lager. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not much to it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours pale golden with a nice creamy head with tons of tiny little bubbles and beautiful carbonation bubbles floating to the surface, lacework is nonexistent. Aroma is crisp clean hops and some grain. The flavor is sweet mellow and somewhat grainy, a little hops come through as well. I was not expecting much from this brew, but if you rate it for what it is, it’s actually not bad, good session brew.

Served with a fine white head and no lace. color was a clear gold amber. Aroma was hoppy, malty, and beery. Flavor was similar with hops coming out with some floral characteristics. Body was good but carbonation was a tad flat. Finsh was nice with hints of salt, acid, & bitterness. Could do worse.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at BJ’s Hurst. Clear gold color. Little head to speak of. Smells cold. I’m not pulling much aroma here. Tastes dry and grainy. Some light metallic notes that fade into a lingering bitter aftertaste. Not much here.

Bottle. Poured pale yellow with thick white head. Faint new hay aroma. Light bodied with light malty taste and a thin hop edge. Thin bitter hop finish. This beer seemed scared, as if it were afraid to assert itself.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tried this one at the Atlanta Summer Beer Festival. Aroma was of hay and grass. Taste was similar, very dry. Not a bad brew when its 100 degrees outside but not quite my style.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Serving: Draft at the Nova Brewfest.
It pours a light yellow color with a foamy, white head. The nose is light with a bit of skunk and grain. The flavor defines a fizzy tasteless beer with a bit of cloying grain thrown in. An off bitterness rounds this shoddy brew out. Light in body with high carbonation and a watery, short finish. This is pretty bad.
