3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13
Aroma: The aroma is a bit fruity, with some malty notes, a bit of hop, and some spice
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is much the same, a little sweet, a little bit spicy, and a little bit tart too
Palate: The body is fairly light, but not overly watery considering that it clocks in under 4%
I thought this was a pretty solid beer. It isnít anything amazing, but itís nice to try a solidly made low alcohol beer every now and again (especially in the midst of a festival). Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shaker pint draft at The Good Life in Massapequa Park, New York. The pour is a hazed orange golden, with a 1/2 inch fizzy white head. The aroma is light citrus, tart sourness, a touch of sweet malt, and not too much else. The taste has a nice light citrus tart zippiness to it, gentle salt (hey, I just got the name) along with a light toast malt underneath. There is a touch of straw and a slight dirty mineral to the finish. The palate is light bodied, with a bright soft fine carbonation, and a nice unfiltered mouth feel. Crisp easy drinking beer, nice body considering the low ABV.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught. Pours a lightly hazed amber with no head at all. Mild lemon and malt in the aroma along with some noticeable salt. The flavor is decidedly bland with weak malt and a solid dose of salt. Watery body only adds to the blandness. Not something I would look to sample again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours a clear orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma is quite bready and crackery. Flavor of the same breadiness and it also has a distinct sea salt character and mineral notes in the finish. Itís fairly simple and straightforward, with a little extra nuances from the coriander and sea salt. I havenít had too many Goses, so itís hard to compare the beer. It is enjoyable, but a little bland.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
A: The beer pours a lightly cloudy golden orange color with a dense white head.
S: This is even hard to smell. The butter aroma is absolutely overwhelming. I get a bit of salt and lemon zest, but the butter just kills everything. A touch of wheat and popcorn.
T: Tastes of butter as well. The salt, light tartness, and even malt flavors are really lost here because all you can taste is the diacetyl. Simply unpleasant.
M: On the light side of medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: This is just awful. Though, you might sprinkle this on some popcorn.
