2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle, bonused to me by BrewtopiaofPJ (thanks Mark), pours a clear copper golden with a small off-white head. Aroma is pretty standard, with crackery crystal malt and very mild floral hops. Flavour is almost non-existent, with metallic crystal malts and muted floral hops. Not see what the point is of making such a tasteless and boring beer. Not good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club.Slightly hazy amber with a big stable frothy off white head. Pleasant citric and floral hops aroma with pine needles notes and a bit of malt. Flavor has some malt sweetness with a bit of caramel, citric hops and a nice lingering bitterness, a bit piney. Medium-bodied, maybe just a bit over-carbonated. A good well-hopped easy-drinking APA.
