Bottle. Super light, moderately active and a nice bright-white head. The initial impression is of a quite fruity brew ... my first thought was tropical fruit. Maybe a unintentional subliminal result of the name. As I drink, I realize it’s really more of a fruity hoppiness, but it never does come off quite right. Enjoyable enough, but I think it didn’t pull off what they wanted to here ...(#4256, 9/13/2011)

Pours a clear yellow golden pour with with dense billowing seafoam white head. Pleasantly surprised with just how hoppy this is. Sweet fresh crisp nose with distinclty noble bitter hop flavor. Not as good as prima pils, but pretty damn tasty!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Whole Foods Market, DC sixer ($6): Pours golden color without much in the way of head. Aroma is of light malt and light hops, smells kind of watered down. Taste is bitter throughout, but has a kind of soapy taste underneath it and only when the soapy taste recedes does the bread come out, leaving a sort of bitter, bready finish. It’s drinkable enough, but it sure ain’t that great.
