"Floral characteristics are a little on the weak side, overall a decent pale ale that disk stand out but was not at all hateful either. I’d try again but wouldn’t seek out."

The Sampler, Brooklyn can ($2.49): Pours amber, kind of muddy, with an off-white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, malt, hints of citrus. Taste is somewhat hoppy, but extremely well balanced with the malt backbone. Pretty nice.

maekchu (2160) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2014
Can from Zipp’s Liquors. Great citrus nose, cake-like sweetness, some piney notes, and a little stank. Rich medium-dark gold color, rocky head. Good balance right off, some light tropical fruit (mango, pineapple), and edge of sourness, and a balanced finish. Medium-light body. They got this one just right. Light and easy. Quite hoppy for a pale ale.
