3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can, purchased at Yankee Spirits - Attleboro, MA. Evil Twin was, is, and will always be on my Mikkeller List, but I made an exception to explore a highly regarded low alcohol beer as my interest in this territory is particularly high at the moment. Pithy, zest, sun yellow aroma. On the palate, pretty quick biting greenness through Citra-like lime qualities. Fresh and vibrant. At this gravity I’m not missing the sugars and am appreciating that this lacks a thin feeling quality, which has instead been replaced with a very pleasing bitterness in the C-hop vein. I do get some light phenols off the yeast and a nip of styrofoam mid-palate, but for something so light, I’m rather impressed and I’d certainly revisit this in the right situations. I think eventually my palate would fatigue on the strong and lingering green bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can from Premier Gourment. Pours a clearish golden colour with average-sized white head. Aroma is nice floral/spicy hoppiness with a bit of sweet maltiness. Flavour is big on grassy/spicy hops, some floral notes too and an underlying light, sweet maltiness. Body is unsurprisingly on the lighter side. Quite impressive for the low ABV - wish I could lay my hands on this more easily.

The aroma is grass, sweet malt. The appearance is hazy gold amber, white head. The flavor is grassy, spicy hops, sweet malt. The finish is spicy hops, floral hops. Medium in body. Really good for this style, especially for something with no alcohol in it.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the can. Aroma is strong, very citrusy, lemon and grapefruit peel. Strong aroma for low ABV. Taste is grapefruit peel, pretty bitter. Malt undertones, some spice and caramel. Mild dry finish. Light body. Not bad, wish it had some more alcohol!! 4% would let me justify buying it, but at 2.7 I might as well drink hangover pee. Prob has more booze in it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a moderately thick frothy white head on it. Nose is lightly hoppy, with some floral tones to it. Taste is slightly bitter, but is extremely light and easy to drink. Definitely sessionable, but not something I’d pick.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 fl oz can. Clear, light golden yellow with very foamy white head. Nice fruity/grassy hop aroma. Taste similar, but quite light, a little watery (obviously). Near the end of the glass, it had a some subtle funk malt aroma and taste. Could be that it warmed up, or just that my nose was completely in the glass when sipping. Not bad. Good for when I’m working, but still want a few beers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a can bought at Champanes,
this beer had a pale orange pour with yellow at the sides of the glass and presented a large white foamy head (two to three fingers) that eventually receded to a sticky ring and cover, there was a little haze in the beer, it left nice spots of lacing on the glass,
the aromas were lightly toasted malt, a little bread, and maybe a touch of biscuit, the hops were light grass, herb and floral, there was a touch of tropical fruit- orange and lemon with some fruit and malt sweetness,
it had flavors of herb and faint grass hops, soft toasted malt and some fruit, there was very little to no sweetness in this drink,
the finish had a gentle bitterness of hops that was drying with little malt flavor,
it had a pretty light mouth feel and a little creaminess on the tongue, the carbonation was average or so,
this was a nice light beer, a good beer for how low the alcohol was, I certainly like this beer better than the no alcohol beers, it does not have the off aroma and flavor of the no alcohol beers, this drink would be great for a hot Summer day.

Amber beer, good sized head. Nothing overpowering anywhere here but what I am getting, fruit, hops, lemonpeel, works well for what it is. Fairly dry.
