Bottle from giant eagle. Light hop smell and turbid pour. Crisp clean taste and sharp initial mouthfeel followed by smooth floral aftertaste. Not too spiced. Overall a decent warm weather beer.

Pours very turbid canary with splotchy white head and a lot of floaties. Nose is floral, spicy, and hopcitric. Tastes very dry, tannic, spicy, floral, with a watery palate and a finishing earthy flavor.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the mixed 12 packs.
Gold pour with a medium foamy head.
aroma is kind of one note and grainy. Slightly yeasty.
There is a smoothness to the body that I assume is the oats, a herbal/tart quality. Light floral hop and soft malty sweetness balance relatively well.

Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that was mostly diminishing down to a light film and a very small collar and had just a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a light pale hay malt, floral hops and a mild earthy yeast with notes of oats, citrus (lemon and orange) and a slight floral presence.
The taste was lightly bitter throughout with the beginning having mild hints of citrus and a light hoppiness with a slightly sour floral finish. The flavor was short lived with a slight bitter taste that faded fast.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and very lightly oily texture and possessed a fizzy carbonation.
Overall a fantastic Summer brew that was light, tasty and quite satisfying. It is great to taste a Lager that has some flavor and a great drinkability...

3.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A lovely and delicious summer beer. Probably a new favorite! Aroma was the only disappointing part of this beer. Could pick up some sweet grains and oatmeal but very faint. Pour was a beautiful cloudy light gold with tons of sediment and a one finger white head. Perfect looking beer. Taste was very subtle and refreshing. A nice combination of sweet grains, oats and a slight sugary sweetness balanced by a tartness I can only imagine comes from the dandelion. A nice acidic sourness in the aftertaste. Nice carbonation makes this beer the perfect summer beer. If the aroma had been as good as the taste, this would be a 4+ beer

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden pour with a good deal of suspended sediment. The aroma is of wheat, lemon, bubble gum, vegetal. Firm carbonation, medium bodied. Tastes of lemon, piney hops, canned vegetables (maybe from the dandelion?), light sweetness, snappy finish with a refreshing bitterness. Pretty nice. No trace of dandelion that I can detect.

It poured a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of malts, wheat, citrus, and hops. The taste was about the same. A decent summer brew. Interesting label describing brewed with dandelions, hmmm.

12 ounce bottle from the summer sampler. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of earthy, nutty, floral notes with some caramel. The taste is nutty and earthy with toasted malts and an herbal, almost tart finish. Medium bodied.

Not a fan of this beer. It’s made with dandelions... That’s a weed last time I checked. Very cloudy with a lot of sediment to the point where I almost wanted to eat this beer with a fork.
