Sammy (9443) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
Big malt present initially, citrus edgy hops kick in at finish. Fresh can from Ohio trip. Still pretty drinkable and flavour at the low abv. Lace lines

Dogbrick (9346) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits on 05/13/2011: The beer is an amber-orange color with a thin and foamy off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of citrus and hops. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character that has citrus and herbal notes, along with malty undertones. The finish is mildly hoppy and short. Decent overall.

GT2 (9272) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Poured a clear amber with a rocky, beige head. Excellent retention and lace. Dry-hopped, citrus hops, orange peel, fresh biscuit. Taste is nice biscuity malt, caramel, nice fresh citrus hop bitterness. Could easily pass for a pale ale or even IPA. Really good- shows the power of low abv beers! Hurray!

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Pale amber pour and a thin tight white head. Nice, lightly hoppy nose with orange peel and some grapefruity citrus. The body is surprisingly full-bodied with a nice malt sweetness balanced by assertive cascade-type bitterness. Nicely perfumy with some light floral notes as well. The bitterness seems to fade as you dive through the pint, but it never gets tired. Pretty easy to knock back a few of these bad boys.

Draft. Orange hops and caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange and light caramel malt flavor. Okay - standard.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2011
Pours clear yellow with fluffy white head, aroma has notes of lemon, sweet cereal grain, some biscuit, and a touch of grass. Taste is nice lemon with lemon peel, with slight cereal, sweet biscuit, some bitter grassy hops. Delicious, yet sessionable.

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Draft at CAH. Pours clear straw with white head. Nose is big citrus, grapefruit, and black pepper. Medium palate, and I was amazed how much tropical fruit and peppery citric notes were in this with the relatively low ABV. A nice beer.

DSG (8346) - Tel Aviv, - NOV 30, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 Re-rate 9/8/12: Can sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear deep golden. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit "green", with pine needles, grass and citrus notes. Dry-ish flavor with light sweetness, a bit of malt anc nice hoppy bitterness with piney and grapefruity hints. Medium-bodied. Good and easy-drinking. 7/3/7/3/15=3.5

(10/27/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in San Francisco. Menu says 3.2% ABV. Clear golden color. Floral hoppy aroma with some citrus. Sweet malty flavor at first with some bread and subdued diacetyl notes, continues hoppy and bitter with some grapefruit hints. Medium-bodied and a foamy mouthfeel. Not bad. 7/3/6/3/13=3.2

DrSilverworm (8339) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2012
12oz can, canned 12/23/11. Clear orange color. Very nice thick and foamy off-white head. Good lace. Awesome can art. Great hop aroma. Satisfyingly strong and bitter. Definitely a bold flavor for the low alcohol content. Lighter, crisp carbonation, easy to drink. A wonderful session ale.

BVery (7884) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Can. Rich golden pour with a smaller sticky white head. Aroma of pine resin and citrus. Medium palate and great carbonation. Taste is a beautiful balance of piney, citrus hop and malt. Great brew!
