0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
this thing is so foamy itís ridiculous. a small pour yielded an ounce of beer and more than a pint of foam. and i can smell this monstrosity from several feet away. the first pour overflowed. the second one didnít, but then the bottle did. what the fuck is wrong with this beer? is that what organic means? i almost just want to give it a .5 and not even try it. itís like they preloaded 5 tums into the bottom of the bottle, only to be activated when the thing was opened. iíll have to wait at least 15 minutes to drink it, and who has that kind of time? well i waited it out. the beer is pretty opaque and decent looking. smells like the floor of the brewery in aachen germany. but worse. you know how sometimes something is so horrific your back spasms? that just happened to me when i tasted this. my second sip did the same thing. it tastes like a plastic factory. to be fair, 6 sentences in, it might be light struck. but this is a hedonistic scale and iím giving this my worst rating ever, 7 thumbs up.

Oxidized dirty socks nose. Overly carbonated palate with mild grain astringency. Funky dirty finish.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours 2 cm. of tan head. Orange color with furvent bubbles that rocket upward. Poor lacing. Nose is incredibly subtle with some wheat; almost odorless. Taste is subtle hops with grain cereal. Not much going on. Medium carbonation and thin bodied. Just about drinkable. Too bad, I really like their Porter.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy gold with very minimal head. Nose is like stale roasted peanuts. For some reason this nose reminds me of the green chile beer I had in New Mexico, which I thought was beyond atrocious. Flavor is bitter and harsh and lacks any grace. Marked by a tangy bitter edge, it just lacks any positive quality. Feel is okay. The flavor just overpowers and positive qualities on the feel. Drinkable? Why would you want to? I donít even want to finish this mess.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Hi-Time Wine. Pours a light amber color. Slightly sweet hoppy aroma. Fairly pungent. Smooth hop character. Lacking some flavor though. Easy drinker.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours orange with almost no head. Not very attractive at all. Smelld of grain, musty mild hops, and faint malts. Maybe a little citrus too. The taste is quite watery, bitter malt character and grain. Some traces of yeast and very slight hops are there too, but there is nothing about these flavors that resembles anything good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gold pour. Just a bit of off white carbonation. Toasty, biscuity malt and subtle, crisp hops. Stale grain in the finish. Light body, balanced carbonation. Drinkable with some pizza or a burger, but thatís about it.

This was a decent drinkable beer, but not a whole lot going on here. Drinkable beer plain and simple
