Stagnant hops and sweet american something in the aroma (Anna, are you drunk?) Peach aroma. Orange colour, minimal head. Tastes of light fruits, sweet juicy ones. Not so much in the finish, a bit dull. Didn’t work for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Capitol City Brewing Company, DC 16oz tap ($3.50hh): Pours a copperish color without too much in the way of head. Aroma of citrus and ambiguous flowers, with some obvious pale malt behind all that. Taste is pretty much up the same avenue. A little bit hoppy with the bitterness and the like. Still the mouth feel is nice and crisp and the body is pretty good. Basically this fulfills the criteria of the style to the T, but is not really outstanding in any shape of form.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber from tap with a thin head. Pleasant floral aroma. Some hop pronouncement on the tongue but the mouthfeel was thin for my taste. Finishes a bit watery.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes. On tap at the Union Station location.
Pours a moderate copper brown color with a bit of a white head. Not much lacing. Nose brings forward some very light citrus and floral hops. A bit of malt. The taste is really light with some very mild hopping. Mostly just some pale malt. A bit of bitterness in the feel. Nothing inherently wrong with this, but it’s fairly run of the mill and quite light.
Serving type: on-tap
