3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of citrus, grapefruit and orange peel notes, some dank, very light onion notes, just a hint of light grain. Pours golden with a nice white head and good clarity. Flavors of nice bitter citrus fruit grapefruit and orange peel, some dank, a little green onion, very light malt sweetness underneath, a touch of grain. Big lingering hop bitterness, good carbonation, great drinkability and flavor. Good stuff!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is far better tasting beer than I’d have expected, given that there’s just nothing in the can. It pours light yellow, heavy carbonation, fairly foamy head. The aroma is a little like sweet cornbread, there is some citrus hop in the smell, too. The flavor is dry, which is just amazing for a 2.7% ABV beer. There are noticeable pine hops, too. The finish is as clean as pure water, but the fact that there is anything at all to taste in this thing amazes me.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1133 - 355ml Can from CBI. Killer tropical punch bowl nose erupting from this foaming straw-coloured pour. Cool mango, citrusy hoppy overtones pronounced into a balanced straw maltiness, with a crisp dry finish. This much flavour packed into 2.7% is just unreal. Gotta get it.

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!
