Can pour light golden thick white head. Nose pine, mango, and resin hop. Taste bitter biter up front. Lose the aromatic hop in the taste. Decently strong malt presence. Mild finish. Fairly light beer matching the abv.

Bottle. Pours a rusty orange golden pour with a small head. Nose is all citrus with some light pine and resin. Needless to say, very light but flavorful, with citrus and pine notes. Finishes on some bitter citrus notes. This "sissy beer " wins over any macro lager. Given the category, and rated as such, quite decent. Quaff Score 7/ 10

Pours an amber orange with an off white head and hoppy, citrus aroma. Taste is very light as expected, but nice flavors of hops and citrus while crisp with some bitterness given the abv and style. Alot more flavor then expected, hops and citrus get through nicely given abv, easy drinking and great brew for style

Burk från Connecticut Avenue Wine & Liquor Deli, Washington DC. Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Doftar tropisk fruktighet, viss citronsyrlighet och tallbarr. Inbjudande. Det är trevligt att det görs smakrika öl även med låg ABV. Det finns en sympatisk beska här, det är trevliga smaker med grape, melon, kåda och karamell, men... Men det går inte att förneka att just den låga ABV:n leder till att det blir rätt vattnigt, rätt tunt, rätt enahanda. För en låg alkohol-öl är detta excellent. För en öl är det bara okey.

For a beer with such a low abv, the amount of flavor is remarkable. The aroma is full of fresh spicy hops and on the palate, there isn't much there from the malts but the hops are tasty. Great session ale.

12 ounce can
A top notch beer proves that not all low alcohol beers have to be tasteless boring water. This is definitely a beer that would be easy to finish at the beach despite the slightly more expensive price tag. I’d still love to try Nanny State to see how it stacks up.
Aroma / Appearance - The foamy head surges before it collapses in mere seconds. A transparent rose gold base remains behind. Light grassy hops, orange polish, and gentle malts are easy on the senses but still inviting enough to remind one of a higher gravity IPA.
Flavor / Palate - The watery mouthfeel is expected for a light sessionable beer under 3% ABV. Gentle hops brighten the palate. At $2.99 a bottle it is a bit expensive for a daily drinker but is worth drinking on occasion. I’d split it with people new to beer just to show them there is more to life than BMC.

Amazing amount of hop flavor in this light beer. Refreshing, mild, but notable grassy/pine/resin flavors come out here. Very drinkable.

Bottle at Cajun Cafe Fall Beer Fest. Pours a medium yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is some light malt and some grassy and citrusy hops. Flavor is similar with some light malt, some grassy and citrusy hops. Can it compete with other higher ABV session IPAs? Not at all. Can it compete with any other beer at this gravity? Blows them all out of the water! Very nice for what it is, but it would not be my everyday drinker.

Can. Pours a cloudy light orange color with a small fizzy head that quickly fades to a ring. Aromas are pine, grapefruit, grass, flowers and bread. Taste has tons of flavor for such a low abv. Hops are smooth here unlike many session IPA’s I’ve had. Strong grapefruit and grass hops with some pine, flowers, and grape must. Medium body. One of the best session IPA’s I’ve had and this will be my new go-to tailgating beer.

#2.25 can from Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours golden, tiny white head. Smells of hops and some skunk. Tastes of plain, lightly citrus hops. Not a lot of other flavor in there.
