3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s always oddly rewarding to drink refreshing wheat ales in the cold months, so I couldn’t resist the urge to crack into trout slayer. I must say, in more appropriate weather, Trout Slayer might be a god send. It’s an approachable thirst quencher with a fair amount of hop character. I liked the pale yellow color, the spicy aroma, and the somewhat creamy mouthfeel. In all though, I wished Trout Slayer was headier and more flavorful. Still, this is a sweet, smooth wheat ale. Though it did not slay my trout, it certainly gave it a nice tickle. That has to be the weirdest euphemism I’ve ever given on this site.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The color of this beer is a very clear brownish orange with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends wheat, yeast, earthy hops, and orange peel, and the taste is mildly sour, slightly bitter, and a touch sweet with a purely sour aftertaste. The palate fuses a light body, slick and thin texture, and a soft carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear gold with a thin but lasting white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas are very faint but some slight lemon, wheat and flowers emerge. Taste is fresh lime with a bit of funk and very faint banana. Aqueous body with a very light fruity aftertaste. Ok but not memorable.
