Canít explain why I like this so much better than the first poster, but to each our own. Draft taster at Standard Market today. Clear golden yellow under a stiff head. Smell has basically piny hop, a bit of floral note as well. Taste builds on the pine hoppiness adding a note of grapefruit and some big bitterness that still works well with the lighter malt profile. Welcome as a sessionable hop bomb.

Draft at beer bistro. Golden and clear pour with white head. Gumball flavor. Sweet grassy candy. Has a lot of flavor for low ABV. Enjoyed this one

Iíve enjoyed all the Buckledown beers Iíve tried so far, but Iím not a fan of this one. On tap at Brixieís Beer Bar in Brookfield, IL. Yellow color, with no head. Taste is musty with pine hops bitterness that seems "off" just a bit, and essentially no malt. Light body, and a bit "watery". Very much a "meh" experience.
