1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
There is an aroma of floral, grass, and herbs. It is pale amber in color with a medium bodies white head. There is a sweet, undefined taste that leaves an abrupt unpleasant taste on the palate.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Bottle: straw-yellow color, mild clarity with a chunky white head that settles rather quickly. Aroma is heavy lemon feel, almost like oily and verbena-ish. Some pale malt, barely any hops, and finishing with a solvent-like aroma. Not very good. Taste is equally as lackluster. Small pale malt backdrop with solvent lemon notes, lemon zest, verbena, very, very slight herbal tea leaves. The solvent finish is killing it. Poorly executed, tastes and smells a bit like Lemon Pledge. Blah.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, from somewhere in Michigan. Bottled June 2013. Clear kind of darker amber color. Thin off-white head. Dots and bits of lace. Surprising amount of caramel malt. Light lemon, some bready wheat. Light spice. Moderate earthy hop. Little metallic. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly sticky finish. Reasonably smooth and easy drinking. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Interesting, somewhat fruity amber ale. Lemon is subtle, doesn’t over power the amber ale. Odd, but not awful, not nearly as bad as the current mean suggests.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
9/13/13. 12oz bottle thanks to Brent! Murky caramel amber color with a small khaki head. Very small lemon in the aroma, mostly abrupt, dirty caramel and a big dose of metal. Dirty malty flavor, dusty caramel, lots of metal, hardly any lemon. Not good.

Wasn’t sure what this was. It is sluggable and doesn’t taste too awful. But not great.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
looks like iced tea. rather sterile clean aroma with slight metallic perfume. taste is not overwhelmingly lemon, not forward at all. from detroit, think they’ll go bankrupt, heheh? perhaps some bitter lemon peel hiding in the background. that bitterness almost approaches a old euro pils. could drink two of these. decent sizzle. overall, improved during the session. Not the worst shandy i’ve drunk.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. I don't know what they were going for here but they didn't get it right. Aroma and taste is funky malts and a little citrus.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber pour with a clingy head. Mild grain aroma. Some weird bittersweet elements on the taste - really not good at all. Pass on this one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pour is copper, thin white head. Aroma is slightly sour yeast and malt some fruit I can’t nail down. Taste is light amber roasted malt, some pine or floral hops. Not terrible, but doesn’t stand out.

Really? Fruit beer? No lemon whatsoever, mostly a lot of toasty malt and some piney hops. Very nondescript.
