3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 5% abv and 35 ibu.
Appearance: It has a good deep golden colored body with great clarity and some visible carbonation. From the pour it sets up a nice thick white head of foam. This foamy head holds on well and makes tons of cool lacing on the glass.
Smell: The aroma has a sweet mandarin orange like citrus character with lighter malty bread and grainy notes underneath.
Taste / Palate: The flavor is hop forward but now more lemony than the nose suggested and herbal, almost tea like notes pop out on my tongue. Malt character is cracker like and white bready like. It also adds plenty of sweetness. The finish has a short funky herbal bitterness fading off the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Huntington Beach, CA. Pours coppery gold with a white head. Light zesty aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is a burst of citrus with nice caramel, and then it nosedives into something not really nice. Finishes bready and bitter.

Thanks to iNBe. Now, I’m all about full flavored low ABV beers. And this was a good attempt but the balance and flavor combinations were a bit odd keeping this from being rated higher. Serving: Bottle

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a clear gold with a large mostly-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of breadyy malt, pepper, a bit of paper and citrusy hops. Very slightly watery flavour is hoppy first followed by bready malt and a moderate bitter finish -- simple but good. Average bodied. A good, not great, Session Ale -- but that abv is too high to be a true Session.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted on tap at Taháa Twisted Tiki Bar in Manchester Grove. It poured a slightly hazy golden amber colour. Lots of citrusy, fruity, black peppery hops, but an odd farmhouse-ish, composty aspect reminiscent of saison or berlinner weiss. Since no one else is reporting those flavours, I suspect a minor line infection. Under the circumstances, it was okay but not a very pleasantly balanced beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Bright golden color with a decent fluffy white head.
Pleasant fruity aromas with tropical notes and some sweet malt.
Sweetish toffee flavors, mellow fruitiness, clean light caramel malt, medium bitterness.
Light-med body, effervescent, clean and lacks some oomph. OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light copper/golden color with a small fluffy head. The aroma smells odd light pine, sweet malt, and a touch of oranges. Light, crisp drinker, with some light hop flavor but significant malt. Not bad but seems like a regular pale ale.
