3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to John for the bottle. Poured clear lighter orange with a short, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and lesser bready notes with fresh floral backing.. simple and well-balanced. The flavor found sweet pale malts and a touch of honey at the core.. moderate floral and peppery bitterness around.. spicy and refreshing on the finish. Lighter-bodied and crisp on the palate.. very easy-drinkin’ with no complaints from me.

Pours clear copper with weak off white head. The aroma has notes of tart grapefruit and tangelo, a touch of sour citrus, some acidity and hints of maltiness. The taste is similar with some tart to sour citrus that rolls into bitterness by about midway with lingering light maltiness in the background.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber pour, average off-white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with caramel. Toasty caramel malts with soft ripe-peach hop notes and a moderate bitterness that lingers. Marred by a hard mouthfeel and over-carbonation, but otherwise not bad for a low cost brew.
