3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap during a recent visit to Cigar City Brewpub in Tampa. Pours a beautiful golden color, small amount of haze, good foamy white head. The aroma is cucumbers. Wow...all cucumbers. Maybe some spice, but the cucumber is overwhelming. If you like cucumbers, you will love this. The taste follow the aroma. There is a slight hoppy taste, then cucumbers, then vinegar. The only time Iíve ever tasted something close to this is trying to make a jar of pickles! There is a little bit of hops and malt, but this bad boy is all cucumbers. Itís almost like you started a jar of pickles in vinegar, but stopped short. You really have to like cucumbers! If I liked cucumbers, I would have rated this over a 4.0.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from ABC Liquors in Oviedo. Pours a golden color with a very slight haze and a medium foamy white head. The aroma is medium with cucumbers, peanuts and more cucumbers, papaya, honey and pepper. The taste, like the aroma, features lots of cucumbers, a tangy lemon bitterness that settles quickly into a grassy finish. Just enough malt to keep the beer actually tasting like a beer. The palate was light and fizzy. A very dry finish invites you back more more swallows. The taste of this beer exceeded my expectations. I found it very refreshing and unique. I have come to expect nothing less from this very creative brewery.

Pours a gold color with a very large white head. Smells just like freshly sliced cucumbers and some citrus. Taste is slightly bitter with a lot of refreshing cucumbers, middle it gets a bit sweeter and a bit of citrus as well. Finish is crisp and refreshing, very good beer for a hot summer day. May be just a tad over carbonated

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange under a white fade which lingers as a thin film with thick edges. Swirls with lace.
Hello cucumbers! Freshly sliced sweet gourmet cucumbers along with some bitterness from the skin. Honeyed rolls. Dried herbs in the back along with rose petals and rose water.
Right off I get the bitter tingle of cucumber skins along the sides and in the back. Rose water and dried basil and rosemary in the breath. Sweet cucumber and honeyed bread in the middle.
I enjoy cucumber so I had no problems with cucumber being in my beer and thanks to the gents at Cigar City Brewing, it tasted darn good also. In your face with the cucumber but also balanced and extremely sessionable. One of my favorite summer beers, I always make sure to buy a few bottles.
