355 ml bottle. Pours cloudy copper liquid with a small white head. Aroma is bit spicy and hoppy. Mild citrus fruits in flavors. Bitter finish. Nice but too dull.

60minuteman (1268) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Poured a yellow-gold with white head. Aroma of malt, hop, wheat and citrus. Pale and crisp flavor and a body of fairly quick passing hop/wheat notes. Not much to describe. Simple.

TheKernOwl (143) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2016
Really limp and bland; one-notey dried ‘mixed peel’ with v faint fruit, weak water-y body. More lager than ale. Not worth bothering your liver for. I didn’t finish it. Strictly for ‘American Idiots’ only.

gegwilson (2864) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Keg in the Storytellers, Stockton. Pours golden with a thin off white head. Very light citrus aroma. The taste is light tropical citrus and spice over biscuit. A bit thin and wishy-washy. OK.

kustie (739) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle. Golden color with white head. Aroma has malt, grass. Taste is malty with somewhat bitter aftertaste. Flavors of malt and hint of pine. Thin.

DraftDodger (932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2016
Copenhagen 28/5 2016. 33 cl can from S-Market in Helsinki. Blue, red and white can in Brooklyn Brewery’s usual design. Pours clear golden yellow with big white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Very moderate lacing. Aroma is weak but of exotic fruit with citric overtones. Some fermented fruit in there as well. Soft carbonation and watery palate. Taste has subdued sweetness and more dominant citric sourness. Kind of diluted and watery. Seems to be below standard compared to other beers from Brooklyn Brewery. Disappointing.

Iznogud (2051) - CROATIA - MAY 22, 2016
On tap at The Lexington, London. Pours amber with small white head. Caramel, malty, some citrus hops. Dry. Disappointment really, expected more.

hershiser2 (1867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Can from wine warehouse. Pours golden with a decent off-white head. Light aroma: what's there is a hint of citrus, a hint of peach, and a hint of funk. Taste is tangy, slightly sour. Light citrus, hose water, sour funk. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Emeister84 (1983) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2016
On tap at Hurley’s Tavern (Charlottesville, VA). Peachy aromas, floral. Slightly hazy orange, effervescent, with a mostly lasting rocky white head. Fruity, grainy. Very light bodied, almost watered-down feeling.

wiosna (591) - - MAY 12, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 0,33 l pullo @ Sulo Kajaani. Kirkas kullankeltainen. Tuoksussa runsaasti hedelmäistä humalaa, mallasta, vähän sitrusta. Maussa pehmeää ja kevyttä humalan ja maltaan sekoitusta, leipää, vähän sitrusta ja ehkä persikkaa. Kelpo olut.
