Aroma is sweetish malts and a perfumed element. The flavor is medium grain/malt sweetness and a mildly tart fruit finish. Iím guessing it was out of season/somewhat old, might have gotten a few points up if fresh.

This has quite possibly one of the worst beer labels Iíve ever seen. Itís so bad that I dreaded reviewing this beer... it has been sitting in my review queue fridge for way too long. The only reason Iím drinking this now is because Iím getting tired of seeing the bottle sitting in the fridge. Fortunately, it looks much better in a glass than it does in the bottle. It pours a very light amber color, is heavily carbonated, producing a dense (but thin) white head. Its aroma is sweet, as expected from the color, but very fruit-like, and reminds me of a fruity Belgian ale. Not bad, really. In the mouth, though, the flavor needs a lot of work. The caramel and fruit sweetness lures you in to a metallic bite thatís somewhat uncomfortable. Once it warms up itís actually a little better, and actually a little creamy. Thereís just not that much about this beer thatís enjoyable, and even for a summer beer my palate would be frequently gasping for air in-between sips. Unimpressive, but overall not unbearably offensive.

maxwelldeux (3065) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a smallish head. The nose is a combination of skunky and metallic, which is really off-putting. Itís a super malty and almost sour beer, almost acidic. Itís really unpleasant, IMHO.

csaso (1225) - Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle - average size foamy head, light copper color, sweet malty aroma and flavor with fair hop bitterness - defnitely more full flavored that I expected, not your usual light, lemony summer style ale

Pours straw yellow with a medium sized head. The Aroma is citrus mixed with a bit of malt. I Thin in body with a lot of carbonation. I Flavor is disappointing with a harsh hop bite that is not very flavorful.
