2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light non-citrus hop aroma, along with a light malt. Not a lot there. Light amber color with a respectable white head that does not last long. First impression is of carbonation, mouthfeel is decent, lightly sweet, but there is a bitter balance along the back edges of the tongue. Decently drinkable, especially in comparison with A-B’s main event.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer is a clear straw color with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Mild (not wild) hops aroma with a touch of grain. Light-bodied and crisp with subtle hops and musty malt flavoring. I don’t know if pesticides would help the flavor but I doubt they would hurt much. The finish is mildly bitter and short, and there is a lingering sweetness afterward. Below average all around, which unfortunately seems to be the case with most organic beers.
