Golden pour and white lacy head. Smells like the beach. Good lawn mower beer, the sea salt is a really cool change of pace. It’s 98 in the sun today and this is perfect for the yard work i"m fixin to hit.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12Oz bottle poured into a pint glass yellow cloudy appearance, one finger slowly dissipating head, skunky aroma but very tasty. I would drink this often if it wasn’t so salty. I’m sure that sea salt will bring your blood pressure up in the long run

Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Lively carb.
Overall: A fun, drinkable little beer. I haven’t had too many goses, but so far I’m a fan of the style.

Simple coriander-and-lemon nose, light and watery in the mouth, and not particularly clean. Not horrible but not good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the mixpack, broken up at trader joe’s. with permission of course. Pours is lightly cloudy orange with a thin white lace. Nose is light, clean, cereal malt, light coriander, carraway and salt coming through as it warms a bit. Flavor is okay--more cereal malt, some heavier creamy sweeter malt, some mineral, light coriander in the finish, but way too flabby and sweet for the style. No salt noted in the flavor. I appreciate the effort from Magic Hat and encourage them to continue in this direction.
