3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle, from Cary Whole Foods. Good aroma, Sweet, minor sour streak. Corn, wet autumn leaves, caramel/toffee, grass. Clean brownish orange, small head, faded quickly to nothing. Bitter sweet flavor, like aroma, minus the corn. Lite body, thin smooth mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish. Seems to hit all the classic points of it’s style. Might of low balled this as I enjoyed it a lot while watching the Red Sox beat the Angels. Maybe that had something to do with it.

A golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is oddly hoppy with some lemons and pine. Ofest my arse. If I rated on style Id tan this but I don’t so Ill say this is a pretty good session apa.

Bottle in trade from ROBORB. Thanks man. Pours an orange amber color with a light beige head. Smell is slightly dusty and earthy hops. Not malty in the way I would expect and almost is like its spiced or bretty and lightly funky. Taste is lightly hoppy with a biscuity dusty malt to it and some definite but light tartness and lager yeast flavor. Some lingering sweetness in the end. Medium to thin body and normal carbonation. A bit strange.
