Red cloudy amber ale. Nice pine hoppy aroma, yeasty but with a drinkable feel. Medium carbonation. Enough flavour from the low alcohol beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Kick. It pours a brown, lightly unclear body and a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is fruity and rather roasted, with some tropical fruits and toffee hints. Butterscotch. The flavor has the same toffee, butterscotch and roasted malts, with some fruityness. Medium to thin body, soft carbonation. Roasted, buttery and fruity finish with a faint bitterness. A decent beer, far from impressive. 130427

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Nice peachy hop nose.
Hazy amber, lacing offwhite head.
Aromatic hops underlaid by a toasty earthy note, needs a tad more oomph in the middle . Somewhat light body, mellow mouthfeel. Apricot retronasal

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium, rather dense cream-coloured head over rather still metallic amber-copper beer. Superbly fruity USA-hops. Citrus, resin, exotic fruit. Bitter, but fast gone impression, only to return, much diminished and more metallic in the aftertaste. Meanwhilie, try to imagine utterly dry, totally non-sweet caramel. Finish shows some of the USA hops from the nose. Very empty MF. Even keeping in mind it only features 4%, compared to some other, recent low alcohols, this is watery. Nose is great. If only the rest followed in the same vein.

Bottle @ joes. Orange to copper colou with a lacing white head. Smells hops, pine, fresh. Tastes hoppy, bitter, fresh, fruity, pine - but too thin. Watery, soft carbo.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured, smaller stable off-white foam, hazy, fruity-hoppy nose with a skunky touch; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, relatively dry and light bodied; lingering bitter-hoppy finish with that barnyardy touch again. Really not my personal favourite…
