2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.355l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear golden one with a small just off-white lacing top. It’s not extreme on the nose, but I get some branchy hops, slightly dusty and sweet peaches. Not horrible, but not over-interesting to be honest. It’s below average on the carbonation and it has a slick oily mouthfeel. Not directly fresh on the taste, but it’s slightly berry-sweet this. Low on the bitterness indeed. Kinda mouthdrying and almost astringent also. Would like to try this a bit fresher. 05.01.2012

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a cloudy orange color with a white head. Smells of perfume, some floral hops, water, and bread. A weird apricot fruitiness, sort of sweet and sugary. The flavor is a bit watery. Lots of grass and straw, some floral hops, and a light bitterness. Sweet bread, sugar, and candied orange peel. A weird green olive off-flavor as it warms up.

Bottle. Aroma has caramel and hops. Taste is similar, with some nice grass clipping flavor in there and a crisp finish. A pretty decent beer. 6.5% alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy orange with a finger of off-white head. Aroma is light and hoppy with tangerine-like citrus notes. Flavor is sweet and smooth with only some light bitterness. Slight funk in the aftertaste but not enough to ruin the beer. This one is very light and citrusy without to much of the bittering hops. A good replacement for people who are sick of Blue Moon and want to branch out a bit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy pale brown, big fluffy head. Wafting notes of hoppiness over a distinct "beery" scent of malt and yeast. Smooth and refreshing in the mouth, but a bit thick and sticky for the "summer ale" their marketing seems to suggest. Lingerly bitter, so a lovely summer drink, but not a quaffer.

Geruch hopfig, blumig. Süß-zitrusartiger Anlauf. Mitte ebenso, floral, lieblich. Moderat bitter-trockener Abgang. Sehr ausgewogen - echt gut.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pleasant on the nose due to initial floral aromas, but somewhat alcoholic and tea/simcoe-bitter tasting PA with a light to medium mouthfeel. Left me with a dry mouth and an idea of what a headache might feel like after 2 of these in rapid succession.
