Free sample at distributor. Medium golden color, clear. Very clean aroma. OK. Decent flavor - fairly hoppy but not worth the price it sells for.

Malty aroma. Light, leading to a slight hops flavor in the finish. Hints of earthiness. Smooth, but unremarkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 11/4/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly light, some toasted lager malts, and caramel notes
Appearance: This one pours a clear caramel orange color with some spotty lacing
Flavor: The taste is clean and malty, not overly sweet, and has barley a hint of a hop presence
Palate: The body is fairly light, it drinks clean, has an average carbonation, and a short duration
My first rating from Hop City. (I didn’t even realize I was buying Canadian, just assumed it was an American Micro I’d never heard of.) Anyway, it isn’t a bad beer, but I wasn’t super impressed either. Decent lager, but that’s about it. Eh...

Hazy amber color with generous head, creamy; is there a widget in the can? Mild aroma of caramel and caramel. Round mouthfeel, some caramel flavor; ordinary bitterness. Simple.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color topped by a fluffy light beige head. Mild toasted malt aroma. Dryish toasted malt flavor, rather suddued. Light citrus hops with a touch of peppery bitterness. Nicely balanced, but rather unassuming. Very drinkable, but not worth seeking out. Cool name, average beer.
