3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy golden color with a finger of white foam. A touch of spicy hops with just a hint of citrus. Decently floral as well. A lot of yeast contributions, notably pepper and maybe even a hint of banana. Bready malt makes up the rest. The flavor is a bit bland. It has a strange lemony note on the finish as well. Some notes of floral and spicy hops and maybe some bread/malt flavors.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a Save-Mart. Pours hazy gold with a 3 finger foamy near-white head. Aroma is floral and citrus. Med body. Flavor is lightly bready with some citrus. Drinks pretty well, but gets a bit too bready in the finish. Then suddenly there’s a strong citrus hit. All in all it’s a decent light lager.
