Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a small white head. Fruity aroma. With a little sharpness that could be citrus. Near med body. Seems a bit thin as the minimal carb leaves. It’s lightly fruity, does seem to have citrus, is tending towards dry and astringent. Drinks real good.

16oz bottle. Rating #10. Another very bright looking beer, it practically glows orange with a small, thin white head. Nice malty aroma, crisp with a mild hop aroma. Nice bitterness, mild fruitiness as well with a little sweet maltiness. Not bad. (2336)

16oz draught. No head but sticky lacing over a very hazy, light tequila sunrise body. Nose is sweet and earthy. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter. Feel is quite chewy. Carbonation is flatish with small volume of fine frizz - small for a lager. Finish is quick with a very mild bitterness that lingers. Overall decent.

1pt. .6oz bomber. Good head dissolves in five minutes. Excellent balance between spice and classic, old school lager.

bottle from Kasey, thanks! Medium orange to amber pour. The carbonation is light and I can’t much of a head from a moderately quick pour. Nose lends a decent amount of herbal and somewhat fruity hops along with some sweet caramel and bread like malts. Flavor lends again moderate herbal and intense fruity and biscuit flavors finishing up sweet and smooth. Light carbonation and full body for the ABV. This wasn’t too bad at all though i’m not a fan of the style. Good considering other than the lack of adequate carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with a cloudy pale orange with a thin oily white head. Aroma is bread, yeast, some caramel and a very light fruitiness. Flavor is slightly spicy, bitter, slightly citrus, grain and sweetness. Thin-syrup like feel. Overall, much better than macro-swill; but not one to run out and try.

On tap at Charlie’s in Redondo Beach. Goldish amber pour. Aroma is not too pronounced. I detected a little lemon among other things. Flavor has a nice malt/hop balance. Finish is bitter. Some sourness. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. The carbonation is biting on the tongue.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours with a hazed orange-amber body with a small white head. Aromas are fruity, estery, caramel, light apple note, honey and minimal hops. Flavors are bitter, fruity, light diacetyl, grainy, apple, pear, caramel. Medium to light bubbles. Overly bitter for the style (balance is out of whack). Okay.
