EithCubes (5634) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2014
500mL bottle. Nose sweet with sunny citrus and grainy malt, light perfumey/floral hops, good sense of balance. Pours dark golden with lots of carbonation and a sudsy beige head. Taste is sharp and very crisp, a tad tart but clean and obviously not infected, sugary-sweet with low bitterness, gummy malt and grain character, spritely zest of lemon. Full body, oily perfume thickness, drinks fine, just something about it scream ’rough mash’.

TizzleJizzle (782) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2013
1 pint .9 oz bottle. Popped the top and a massive head started foaming out. Poured a beautiful unfiltered amber-golden color with a white top that slowly dissipated and a little bit of lacing. Taste of citrus, spice, grain, and a subtle hop finish. High carbonation, low-medium.

Crisp aroma with and orange amber hue. Thin foamy head. Tastes a lot stronger in alcohol content than the label leads to believe. Smooth barely and light hop notes.
