2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle as extra from trade. Clear golden with LARGE, white, big bubbled head, infection...? over carbonation...? I’ll soon find out. Aroma is spritzy, sprite with lemon, semi-dry. Sweet lemon flavor with same sort of sprite, this has to be an infection but I can see the basis here with the same grain and light hoppiness that you would get out of a traditional premium lager. Light body with big bubbled carbonation, straight up infection. Wow, so this is what an infected premium lager tastes like. Almost like a berliner weisse with the lemon and light citrus but where is the sweetness coming from?

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Pours a clearish, yellow body with a wispy, white head.
Smell: Light pale maltiness with a scent of tropical fruits and fresh-cut flowers.
Taste: Light pale malts with a light honeyish sweetness. Tastes of flowers and fruits. A sturdy hop bitterness rides out until the crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Not altogether terrible, but not so great either. Still though, I wouldn’t recommend it.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a 12 ounce bottle - Pours a clear pale yellow with below average carbonation, and almost no lacing. The aroma is dominated adjuncts and some floral hops. First sip is surprisingly tasteless with not a lot of flavor. Some hoppy bitterness is present but on a whole this is not much going on here. A big disappointment.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: It had an interesting hazy appearance with lively visible carbonation and a deep or old gold color. The head builds up big, thick and foamy. It has a light creamy tan color with some speckles of brown yeast sediment from the bottle.
Smell: The aroma has hints of floral and earthy hops and yeast.
Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor has pleasant light bready malt presence with an earthy yeast character. Also there is a slightly astringent hint of green apple and mild hops that adds a nice balance of bitterness. The hop flavor fades off nicely into the semi-dry finish. Its carbonation is good and lively with a slick easy drinking texture and light to medium body.
Notes: This is a good solid brew.
