1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear golden color with a very thin white head. Aroma of hops and malt with corn, probably DMS. Subtle flavor of floral hops, thereís also a strange, unpleasant flavor that might feel like vegetables, bitter finish. Light to medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Not good at all.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden body with thin frothy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with tiny herbal, flowery, bready and citrusy notes. Taste is boring. Very common malty and hoppy flavors that die away as you swallow the beer. Just a small step above the macrolagers, which is really not enough to impress me.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Poured a golden colored ale with a below standard head with almost no retention. Carbonation is very weak and body is average. Aroma is pleasant with floral hops easily distinguishable. Taste is very deceiving with limited hops, lacking sweetness and almost no aftertaste. Overall, this is very uninspiring stuff and probably brewed to satisfy the macro drinkers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pale ale is quite grassy with lemon overtones and a dry lemony finish. Much like an American Wheat Ale.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sweet, corn-like aroma (DMS). Clear golden colour. Slight (chill?) haze. Anemic white head that disappears completely. Flavour tends slightly towards the sweet with very little hop character. Some noticeable oxidization (cardboard). Body is medium light and more or less appropriate. Hard to ascertain if there is a good beer beneath all the apparent flaws. Will retry though this one was really not so good. Bottle.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draft)Red amber colour, with light hoppy nose. Little malt in mouth with no hops, and, as with the other beers tasted at SA, little body...in bottle , it's much better.

Clear bubbly light golden body with big off-white head. Aroma is sweet, peach, bready. Taste is medium sweet and generally bland, finishing ever-so-slightly hoppy and slightly more astringent. Fizzy light body.
