3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled and reviewed in December but not entered until now because I didn’t know it was in the RateBeer database.
Pours an orangish-amber color with a white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is ginger and lemons, similar to what you get from bottled lemon iced tea from the store. The flavor is heavy on the lemon with some ginger. No alcohol or hop presence. Also similar to ginger ale. Thin mouthfeel and high carbonation.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Nose is a very specific brand of ginger snap cookies (red striped tin, very thin, arranged in a spiral pattern) Taste is lemon, creme soda, and ginger ale. Not really a beer but I like it.

(275ml bottle thanks to blutt59) Pours pale yellow with light bubbles. Nose of lemonade, sugar and light grains. Taste of lemonade, sugary, light grains, with a well carbonated body that’s light and refreshing. Could be better with less sugar I think.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The nose is malty, honey, lemon. Clear pale yellow, white head. The flavor is like lemonade and honey mixed in with a pale lager. Although beer comprises 70% of the beverage, it’s not obvious from drinking it. The finish has no bitterness, just a sweet lemony aftertaste. Different. Not unenjoyable, just not what I would normally seek out in a beer. I guess you could serve this to a DD at a party or something.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very nice yellow with a very small head with some small lace. The aroma is very tart and lemony like a very nice lemon candy. I expected zero beer character in this but there is a nice malty sweetness along with the tart lemon candy like flavors. There is a little bit of bitterness too, I would imagine that this is from lemon peel or something aside from hops. This is a damn fine soda but I wouldn’t really want a fully fermented beer to taste like this. JediMindTricks said it right when he said that it is what it is and this is pretty damn tasty as it is.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to Andy for pointing out this tick. A golden cider like body with a thin yellow white head. A sweet berry, lime, tart apple-ish aromatic character. Starts off lightly sweet with a hint of a dry marshmallow like pasty but very dry sweetness. Just a hint of lime or lemon bitterness to boot. Fine for a soda sure, as for a beer well that’s another story.
