3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Craftbros in Seoul. It pours a fairly clear gold and a soapy head of head. The nose is really great with a wonderful fruity hoppiness I enjoy. Med-light bodied with a fairly smooth mouthfeel but it seems somewhat undercarbed. The taste is incredibly bitter with a green pine hoppiness and a mouth-puckering chalky grapefruit rind aftertaste. Too bitter for me and the flavors are not at all in the same vein as the enticing aroma. A bit of a let down but for a 2.7% beer fairly good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with light notes of cantaloupe and detergent. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Not too bad all things considered, but pretty tough to truly enjoy. Very stark, thin, watery, and with almost not sugars left. So it’s basically a bitter hop tonic, and the hops are just the usual grapefruit-resin variety so it’s not a lot of fun to sniff.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Doubt this was fresh, but I have to rate as I had it. Got it at a pub in Reno. Tasted stale with stinky hops, floaties, and a thin body. Nothing grabbed my attention. Didn’t finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice aroma of pineapple and pine. Light yellow with an almost whipped cream textured white head. The aroma is deceiving and this is a very light bodied beer. Good dry hay and pine bitterness and just enough biscuity malt sweetness to balance it out. This is the best light beer I’ve ever had!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at 7/11, Kittery, ME. Yeah, I can’t lie, I bought this for the tick. But it really turned out better than I was guessing it would. Aroma is mild fruit, light grass and weak malt.
The body is light (as anyone would guess) but it does have a nice crispness. The bitterness is bold with a big hop profile considering the gravity of the brew. I’m going to rate to style on this one and half to say I maybe hard pressed to find. 2.7% beer with this much flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Nice aroma of pineapple, tangerine, and light pine. Brief bitter hop taste of pine resin and lemon zest with an equal amount of caramel malt. Very impressive at only 2.7% ABV and pretty tasty too.
