(12oz bottle) Crystal clear light amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, orange, some straw, caramel, light grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, pine, grassy, some caramel, somewhat astringent. Light-medium body with a little bit of alcohol sneaking through. Not "miserable" by any means, but certainly subpar.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours a darkish orange amber color with an ok white head. Excellent floral aroma over some caramel. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is rather fruity and floral, with light biting spice, and some astringency. Finish is astringent, though not all that bitter. It’s a really tasty ale, badly underrated, and quite floral in the end. Hooah!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle… Clear, deep yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. The floral, fruity nose releases tantalizing notes of rose petals, tropical fruit, white pepper and maybe just a hint of bell pepper. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Leans on the bitter side of balance with modest, pale grain sweetness and moderate to medium spicy bitterness. A touch meaty. Crisp, moderately bitter, Novocain-like/tongue numbing finish.Cheers to cheapdark for providing the bottle!
