3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours with a watery crystal clear gold body that supports a three (3) second ’head.’ The aroma offers up corn, sugary malts, a dash of lime and a sense of floral hops mixed with honey bread. The taste starts with prickly carbonation forcing up a modest citrusy lime and then it gets into honey, bread and sweet creamed corn.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours hazy and gold with a little white head. Vegetable aroma. A little bit of funk and sweetness at the beginning but it finishes light and crisp. Not sure what they were going for here. Tastes like a macrobrew and I could have gotten something similar for a lot cheaper.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
If I had reviewed this 3 years ago while drinking it on tap at Mad River over a bowl of chili after a nice sunshine-filled trip down the mountain it would have gotten a much higher rating. Today, drinking it from a bottle it tastes a lot differently than I remembered.
Aroma is faint apple, citrus, metallic like a lager. Taste is bitter with strange yeast flavor and lager-beer metallic after-taste. Beer would be smooth on palate if not for medium carbonation.
The last time I had this I remember it being maltier which I liked. Now it just tastes...strange?
