2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap at Lazlo’s in West Omaha. Nice white head that dissipated slowly with nice lacing. Not much aroma. Taste was tart with grapefruit notes. Hoppy finish. Like many Empyrean brews, very drinkable but nothing to write home about.

Only had a small sample at a tasting. However, it tasted beer than it's current RB rating. Aggressive carbonation and decent hops for the low abv. Some nice subtle sweetness as well. Decent.

Bottle. Pours a clear honey color with a thick white marshmallow head. Aroma of citrus, cereal, and biscuits. Sweet and salty. Biscuits, citrus, wheat, and cereal dominate the palate. A subtle bit of honey on the finish. Siolid beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Supernova seems to want to taste like a California Common but its hoppiness is more indicative of an American Pale Ale. That works for me! I like the spicy, herbal notes of the hops. Carbonation is lively but also a bit harsh. Not Empyrean’s very best but it’s worth having.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy, pale gold with a medium white head that dissipates moderately fast with little to no lacing. A hint of citrusy hops combined with the aromas of grain malt makes for a sweet, malty aroma. Lively carbonation and light body, sits smooth and finishes clean. Medium sweet and light bitter taste. Overall, a fair balance of hops and malt (leaning on the hops) making for a satisfying brew.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a Lager Glass at 49°. Color is a slightly hazy gold with very good carbonation and a fluffy white head. Aroma is very light with a bit of corn and a sour note coming through. It has a lighter body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor comes in with a lightly sweet corn or grain like taste, a touch of lemon zest and a bit of hop spice. In the after taste a gentle bitterness shows leaving an almost dry feel behind. Overall it’s a nice little brew just not all that exciting.
