2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Average appearance.. an amber golden brown with good head. Smells of malt, grain with some metallic notes. Bitter, creamy mouthfeel. It tastes muddled... balanced, yet not complex at all... various notes trying to fight for prominence. It’s OK.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper beer with a thin white head. Pleasant, but weak nose of caramel malt and not much else. Flavor has a malty sweetness with some nutty flavors followed by a light bitterness. It’s well balanced, but not particularly flavorful. Easy to drink yet not memorable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Wegmans, Pours clear copper with a tiny white head that is gone before you take a sip. The aroma has a bit of a floral note but is predominantly a mix of undefined citrus and sweet malts. The taste does have a light bitterness but is really bland. There is a bit of a lagerish feel to this. Pretty poor.
