3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
End part of a 12oz bottle, shared by the group. Mildly hazy golden color. Minimal white head and lace. Nice floral hop in the nose. Little orange zest. Light to medium body. Light carbonation. Zesty sweet taste. Pretty good golden. Definitely better than expected, especially for a can that’s been sitting around open for a bit, which I got the end part of.

Can. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow.

Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A simple, somewhat roughly malted example. Watery and thin, with a disappearing head. Drinkable, but little more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to taster from notes (shared by brew3crew). Looks good; a semi-transparent blondish-orange with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes doughy with some floral hop notes. Good on the palate with a little snap too. Solid for the style.

Savannah, Ga - Piggly Wiggly - 12 oz can. Pours a hazy dark golden with a pillowy snow white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma has a hint of mineral water, light floral notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly funky grain aroma, with just a little hint at some sweet spiciness. Jimmy-Buffett-esque can. Tinged straw color, very clear, not much head. Lightly malty, a light straw-husky bittering. Medium body. Hay-bitter aftertaste clings a bit. I would only have this again if it was free. And cold. Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Abercorn, Savannah.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce can - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a light yellow-hued body, ever so slightly hazed, with a small, powder white head.
Smell: Sweetened lemon peel, scant crackery maltiness and a pinch of peppery dried herb.
Taste: Mild malt flavors of soda crackers and puffed grains preclude some sweetish lemon, some mealy-toned husk accents and a herbal, lightly spicy hop character. Lightly bitter. Flavors follow through the crispish, semi-dry finish, though, there’s more of that sweet lemon popping up in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
